Despite the relatively short length the narrow fairways and hilly terrain made it an interesting challenge.

I would definitely play here again.

As we went out on our round the rain was coming down heavily but by the 5th it was glorious! The course was in good condition considering the soaking it had taken, though the greens were all covered in fertiliser which made reading pace and line difficult. A few tough holes in the early and late stages of the round and the course opens up in the middle. The 6th in particular is a beautiful looking hole. Incredible value right on my doorstep, I will be back.

Played this course with friends a few weeks back. Nice wee track, everything you'd expect from provincial set-up. Had the most horrendous experience in the clubhouse being accosted and outright offended by one of the older members at the bar. This man was everything that is wrong with legacy golf culture and the reason memberships are falling and youth participation is dwindling. Clubs will be forced to close off the back of members attitudes to 'outsiders' and I dearly hope my experience at Westhill isn't a common theme

Pros:

fair test of golf for senior members (not too long but accuracy required)

Par 3's not too bad

Firm greens

Half decent views.

Cons:

Very steep. If you're unfit you may struggle

Very short (some longer holes in middle of both 9's). Seems like the course has been squeezed into the land.

Some par 4's were reached with a 2 iron.

Tee boxes are very uneven and fairways are at times rediculously cambered, straight tee shots landing on fairway rolled into rough on many occasions.

Both par 5's are beside housing estates. 5 on back 9 especially. I imagine learner golfers skelp the odd house.
