Recently had a round with 2 work colleagues. The course was busy yet there was no delay on any hole during the entire round. The course was in stunning condition considering the monsoon conditions the day before. We only encountered a small patch of standing water on the 18th fairway. The greens and overall condition of the course was fantastic, the greenkeepers and staff have done a fantastic job maintinaing the course.

Clubhouse was friendly, and the catering before and after the round was excellent.

We had a great day and will certainly return to the course very soon for another round.

Course in excellent condition. Staff friendly, helpful and welcoming. Only downside was the high level of traffic noise and adjacent building works but did not detract from our enjoyment.

Although the greens are in great shape and the course has matured the layout of this course really lets it down, particularly on the back 9. The front 9 has a couple of interesting holes, 3rd in particular is a nice challenge, but you get funnelled into tight spaces where it feels claustrophobic. Even worse on the back 9. Almost seems as though a couple of holes are shoe-horned in where they shouldn't be. I played off the yellows (as a visitor) and the position of some tee boxes is just weird. This unnecessarily shortens some holes and restricts the course to a par 70.

Pace of play was also pretty slow - best part of 4 hours, not helped by the layout I think

The Portleathen golf course is a great golf course.

I just booked this course without knowing anything about it, so it came as a very nice surprise to see how this course was in great shape so early.

I had a great time playing this course.

First time playing portlethen and i cant complain. Relativly easy opening couple of holes, although very wet and greens had been hollow tined the condition was almost as good as the views( stunning ) after the opening few , the course reveals the par 3 5th which is a picturesque short hole that sets the tone for the remainder of the round. If this is what the course is like in winter then i cant wait to go back and play it in the summer months

I am looking for a golf club to join in 2015 and after recently playing portlethen I have now made up my mind. The course was in great condition and not a lot of hills either (am not as young as I used to be lol) the greens were also in tip top condition. There was only one thing that I was a bit disappointed in and that was when we were away to tee off on one of the holes one of the staff was cutting the greens and tee areas he stopped to let us tee off but never switched off his engine and it was a bit off putting.
