Review for Murcar Links

Reviewer Score:


Murcar was the final course we played during our recent trip to the Aberdeen area. What a fantastic course that on our visit played like a true links with a strong breeze to contend with along with fiery fairways and greens. The front 9 must be one of the best runs of holes in the UK. The first hole and 2nd play in opposite directions which enable you to get a feel for the wind and conditions. The remaining 7 holes on the front 9 are all spectacular with great views over the sea and its illustrious neighbour Royal Aberdeen. The back 9 is not as strong as the start however this does not detract from the overall experience. A few tee shots are blind and we did lose a couple of balls having hit what we thought were decent shots plus one of our group managed to hit his ball into a group in front who we had no idea they were still playing in front of us, fortunately no damage was done. Two final points the people at the club were very welcoming and its obviously a thriving members club with a great atmosphere. Second point, what an underated location Aberdeen is for a UK golf trip.
