Review for Murcar Links

Reviewer Score:


Dont be fooled by the relatively gentle start to Murcar Links. This course presents a serious challenge, and although not long by todays standards it is frequently chaperoned by a stiff breeze which can make the yardage figures a nonsense.There are lots of memorable holes on the course, particularly through the dunes from the 3rd to the 10th, and also the stretch 13 – 16 where there are some interesting changes in elevation and good views to be had.It can be easy to run up some high numbers if you stray off line as the course is tight in places, and the penalties are tough but not unfair by links golf standards. When i played the course it was in fantastic condition, having hosted the Scottish Amateur Championship a couple of weeks previously, and the greens were fast and true.There are good practise facilities at the club for anyone that wants to blow off a few cobwebs before venturing out, and the staff in the pro shop and bar couldn’t have been more helpful.All in all, well worth a visit if you are passing.
