Golf in Aberdeen and Grampian

Kings Links Golf Course

Kings Links 18 hole course is a traditional well-established links course running parallel with the Aberdeen beachfront and close to other leisure facilities and Pittodrie Stadium, the home of Aberdeen Football Club. The course has a wide range of holes ranging from par 3 to par 5. The longest hole is the Burn, a 502 yard par 5 and the shortest is the Fishers, a 171 yard par 3.

The 6 hole course lies on the corner of Golf Road/ School Road and is ideal for beginners or those seeking a short game of golf or a practice round as the holes are fairly short and the course flat.

The holes are equally divided between par 3 and 4 with lengths ranging from 140 yards (Aulton) to 307 yards (Promenade). Other facilities available include: - 18 hole course: 6270 yards/ 5731 meters - par 71 - 6 hole course: 1273 yards/1064 meters - par 21 - Practice area

Hazlehead Golf Course

Hazlehead offers three picturesque courses and a Pitch and Putt course. Our No. 1 course was designed by Alistair McKenzie, the golf architect better known for designing Augusta National. The course provides a true test of golf skills with gorse and woodland being a hazard for any wayward shots. Several well-known competitions are held here on a regular basis.


The No. 2 course, originally a nine hole course, gained an extension in the early seventies, also designed by Hugget, Coles and Dyer. It has a more open aspect than No. 1 and its beautiful setting is perhaps more suitable for higher handicapped players.

The 9 hole Course has wide fairways and a marked absence of rough, making it the perfect starting point for the enthusiastic beginner. The best known hole on this course is the Sahara, the only desert with grass which is a massive 503 yards, par 5. This course is also ideal for golfers with less time on their hands. A 9 hole Pitch and Putt complements the three golf courses. Other facilities available include: - No1 18 hole course: 6211 yards/ 5679 meters - par 70 - No 2 18 hole course: 5742 yards/ 5250 meters - par 67 - 9 hole course: 2770 yards/ 2531 meters - par 35 - 9 hole Pitch and Putt - Practice area. Other facilities available include: - No1 18 hole course: 6211 yards/ 5679 meters - par 70 - No 2 18 hole course: 5742 yards/ 5250 meters - par 67 - 9 hole course: 2770 yards/ 2531 meters - par 35 - 9 hole Pitch and Putt - Practice area

Inverurie Golf Club

Inverurie Golf Club is a friendly members club with more than 700 golfing members and around 100 dining club members. The clubhouse is attractively designed on two levels with a very pleasant outdoor veranda overlooking the first and eighteenth holes. We extend a warm welcome to visitors, corporate events and golf outings for whom a rewarding golfing experience and day-out is on offer.

The course, 5564yards, par 69, features an initial gently undulating opening nine holes followed by a more testing and tight finish with broom, gorse and tree-lined mature woodland. This presents a fair challenge to players of all standards who also enjoy natural attractions such as roe deer, woodpeckers and buzzards. The experience is enhanced by some panoramic views especially towards the east - taking in Uryside, Keithhall Estate (the ancestral home of the Earl of Kintore), and the ever expanding community of Inverurie.

The nineteenth at Inverurie offers a friendly, relaxed atmosphere where you can round off your day with a quality meal and drink, check out the history of the club, chill out on the veranda with a small refreshment or perhaps mingle with the members and enjoy the regular entertainment. However, an ideal alternative is to visit Steven McLean's well stocked Professional's Shop and browse through the latest golfing equipment, or discuss possible reasons why the course presented a slightly more difficult challenge than you anticipated!
