An absolute beauty of a course.

Walkways better than most fairways at other courses.

A true tough test and the best course I have played in the uk

Great condition and layout. Very difficult for the average golfer! When the wind blows it is very challenging even off the green tees. 14th hole is the "postcard" hole.

Absolute beast

Some cracking holes, but the course is let down by the greens - most are slightly raised which just doesn't feel like a genuine links. Compared to other modern links courses, like Castle Stuart of Kingsbarns, this just doesn't feel quite as natural/well integrated to the dunes.

Bucket list destination

This course will beat you up. Missing the fairway is most likely a lost ball, most greens upturned saucers with tiny lending areas, bunkers everywhere and the wind blows......
But I want to do it all again! The most beautiful and naturally stunning golf course I've ever played. Best word to describe it is simply "wow"

Golf turned up to 11

May very well subvert your expectations. Beautifully understated drive in and clubhouse (almost certainly due to planning regulations rather than an outbreak of good taste), all practice facilities at hand. Well trained and polite staff.
The setting is staggering, never seen dunes like it. Easily twice the size of a birkdale or Troon. Every hole by itself on a vast acreage, just has an epic feel, can see the sea well enough from most holes. Follows the modern style of design of being a bit too generous off the tee and surely too demanding on, or more likely off the greens. Pretty much all are upturned saucers, making your target small. Greens were only 8 on my stimp probably should be a foot quicker. Fairways and especially bunkers justify the hype, great nic.
Only two gripes, imo needs a set of tees between the 6600 and 7000 ones. Nobody is getting within 10 of their handicap from the back two sets of tees unless they can't count. Also, it's set up mostly for corporate and large touring groups, it's not the place for a three hour two ball.
Greatest course in the world? Impossible to say, but it's in the conversation, which is impressive enough. Has replaced royal St. George's as my British favourite, and by a margin. May need to hold the Open a few times before it gets the recognition though.

Absolutely amazing Golf Course! Stunning scenery and a beautiful course, fairways and greens were in perfect condition. The marshals and Pros on-site were fantastically helpful and made us feel welcome. You may not like the Trump but he certainly knows how to build a fantastic golf course, I highly recommend this to everyone.

Definitely the hardest course I have played but one of the best. Every hole is its own challenge and has its own character. Rarely have I shot such I high score and enjoyed it so much. Playing in 30MPH winds is very tough indeed, wind was right at us for the first 4 and many of the holes on the back nine, it means any element of cut on the ball is gone.

Has to be one of the best courses I have ever played. Layout exceptional, course design fantastic, looks so natural winding around the dunes. Every single hole has character, and each has challenges which can catch out any golfer. The recent addition of a fantastic clubhouse, enhances what was already a first class experience for all golfers. This has to be a contender for Professional Championships in the years to come.
A must play for any golfer out there.

Trump Scotland is by far the very best golf course I have ever played including Royal County Down,Muirfield,Royal Portrush,Ballybunion, Lahinch-/ all of which I have played. The course is very playable if you play from the correct tee boxes. Fairways are wide but the rough is penal. The greens putt pure but the green on the eighth hole has far too many humps and bumps. It has no place on such a championship course. It needs to be reworked. The service and food is outstanding. This is a must play course.
