Review for Murcar Links

Reviewer Score:


I had a wonderfully calm sunny morning to play at Murcar. This surely helped what is already a stunning scenic trip around the sand dunes of Aberdeen. With 2 fairly standard par 4’s to start with, the course really comes to life on hole 3. An unusual split fairway down a slope leaving a mid iron into a green hollowed out of the dunes is a perfect teaser for the rest of the front nine. Each hole interesting and different, 3-9 is the perfect example of links golf. The following nine are good holes, but working away from the sand dunes, not quite the same quality. However, all good holes with some notable ones at 15, 16 and a nice finish up 18 with a well bunkered hole. I would thoroughly recommend going to play Murcar. After playing Royal Aberdeen the day before, I’m not sure which I’d rather play again. I think the answer would be to play both!
