Newburgh on Ythan Golf Course

This is a hidden gem of a course. The front nine and the back nine holes could not be in greater contrast with the back nine presenting old fashioned links golf at its best.

It is a great pity that this terrific little gem of a course is overshadowed by the nearby courses at Royal Aberdeen and of course Trump International. However as more and more golfers discover this course of two halves, its reputation can only grow.

The front nine holes are formed on lees flat ground that ruises up from the lower links course positioned along the banks of the River Ythan. This uneven ground leads to "one hill up- one hill down" kind of pattern with a number of the fairways leading to multi tiered greens. this green structure allows the pins to be placed in both easy and very tricky positions.

The back nine is the old part of the course where players can enjoy old fashioned links golf with firm lies, blind approach shots and deep punchbowl greens between the sandy dunes. The holes flow round the strip of sandy soildown by the river and its estuary with mnay of the fairways flanked by impenetrable gorse bushes.
