Exceptionally well maintained

Despite the long dry spell the course is green and in superb condition. The greenkeepers are always in evidence and they do a fantastic job with everyone very friendly.
The course is hilly with a number of blind holes and the wind off the sea is usually an added challenge. A bonus of playing the course is the all round views of the city, the harbour, the sea and the beach.
Well worth a visit

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

The views from every hole are exceptional and varied and include the city, the harbour, Aberdeen Bay and the hills in Deeside. The course is in great condition and the staff friendly and helpful.
Winter greens are a challenge but summer greens look superb. Roll on summer

Great course kept to a high standard. Greens are in excellent condition. The course can be challenging with wind almost always present. The course is very hilly with a lot of blind holes. Definitely worth a round if you haven't been yet its fun and challenging.
