Murcar Links was established way back in 1909 with Archie simpson designing the original layout. Later the influence of James Braid was brought into play in the redesigning and establishment of some classic holes. The course is wedged into a classic strip of sand dunes interspersed with the usual clumps of whins, heather and the inevitable streams.

Murcar is a course that is a challenge indeed but is not in any way a monster of a championship test. Murcar poses the average golfer some tricky problems with the network of fairway hummocks that can cause a cruel habit of bouncing an otherwise ok shot, into some vicious rough.

The experience is quite stunning with the elevated tees providing some spectacular vistas. The 7th hole called the "Serpentine" is the signature hole of the course, requiring a drive over a twisting stream avoiding the chasm on the right and the jungle of rough on the left. Landing the ball on the narrow fairway strip is a pleasure indeed.

Murcar plays true but tough, especially when the wind comes off the North Sea
