Undoubtable the best example of a traditional links golf course in the North East. Arguably better and tougher than its famous neighbour having added extra yardage to the course over the winter. Generally straight forward iron shots are required however finding fairway off the tee is no easy task. A wayward drive will not mearly cost a bogey but regularly double, treble or worse and with fairways that encourage the ball to roll off rather than gather, pin point accuracy is required from the tee. Couple all this with vast areas of pot bunkers and unforgiving gorse, this should be the first on your course to play in Scotland.
