This certainly isn't even close to some of the great courses in Aberdeen, however, it's by far the best municipal course. Fantastic views of the harbour and lighthouse, greens are better than average and all for £10. Can't beat it for quick mid-week game after...More

Played an early 18 in overcast and a light breeze. This is one of the cheapest golf courses in the area at 15 GBP and plays above that. Interesting and challenging course that is well kept, a bit slow on the greens for my taste...More

A decent council run course. Not always in the best condition but good value for money. Quite tight course and fast greens

This is one of the best council courses I have played. The greens are well kept and the staff are very helpful. I would definitely play here if I visit Aberdeen again.

Quite a cheap course to go for a hit and has a few nice holes with a good view over the sea. Fine and quiet during the week so should have no problem getting a round
