What the club says: Balnagask (Nigg Bay) Golf Club is a challenging coastal course with many hills, situated within a nature conservation area on the small Balnagask Headland which is packed with at least 18 historical and archaeological sites including the lighthouse built in 1833 and designed by Robert Stevenson. The adjacent 9 hole pitch and putt is a good choice for beginners or those wanting a quick game. All holes are par 3, but due to the hilly location are still quite challenging and good for practising your short game.



Most Helpful Review

I cant complain about this course at all, the Tee's, Fairways & Greens are immaculate, a credit to the staff !! Some say their are to many hills and blind holes but for me this is what makes it unique. A tough trek on the legs but if you can keep the ball straight, a better player can leave their driver at home as you have to think your way round this course, laying up most holes. I have played many courses in Aberdeen and throughout Scotland but for a municiple course the greens really are a credit to the club, and at £15 per round midweek it proves that with the right calibre of staff and knowledge you dont have to join an overpriced private golf club to play and enjoy golf at a high standard. - Jun 19 2012

Fantastic Course & Fantastic Views
For a municipal course the condition is exceptional. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the views of the harbour city beach and sea a bonus that are worth visiting for alone.
For the cost an absolute bargain

Links Golf at Low Prices
For ?15 a real opportunity to play a true Links course. Be prepared for a lesser standard of bunker and to an extent green, but perfectly playable and value for money. Council operated but reasonably well maintained, the selection of holes will compensate for the shortcomings
