Trump International Golf Links
Donald Trump (or as some people like to call him) The Donald is a keen golfer and he wanted to create an amazing golfing experience and my friends let me tell you he sure as hell succeeded with the Trump International Golf Links.
What Makes The Trump International Golf Links So Special
High class all the way!!!! Really that is what you are getting when you come here. Located just about 15 minutes away from the Aberdeen city centre and about 20 minutes away from the airport, Trump International is in a key location for tourists. Everything here is aimed at giving you the best service possible! With their hotel, fine dining and close proximity to the city, The Trump International Golf Links is very popular with golfers who do not want to just come here for the day (which you can do) but who want to have a wee, mini golfing break.
Some golfers say that this is not the most “imaginative” or hardest course in the world and I would have to agree with that, but really when a course is as much fun as this and when it is set in such a breath taking location then who really cares? I know I already used the term high class, but the course really is. With its ocean view, immaculate greens, well looked after bunker and rough that is tough, but still actually looks nice! This is a course that is just perfect to look at.
One thing I have to say about the Trump International is that there is literally no bad holes here! Each one offers six (yes that is right six!) tees so no matter what your skill level is, you have the perfect challenge for each hole. This is a 72 par, Championship Course and at 7,400 yards it is quite the trek, but I mean that in the best way possible. Some parts of the course are so close to the sea that if a big wave comes in you can feel it! The views, the sounds, the sights…… everything about this course is just first rate all the way.
This is fast becoming one of the most popular golf links in not just Aberdeen, but the whole of Scotland. It may not have the “history” of the other more famous courses, but The Trump International more than makes up for this by offering a truly wonderful game of golf no matter what your skill level is.
Best Hole At The Trump International
Wow this is actually really hard, but I had to go with the par three, 229 yard hole 13. All the other holes here are North to South in an out and back style of course. But hole 13 is the objection to this rule! As it pretty much goes across the course! There are all these dunes that can cause some serious trouble, especially if the wind is blowing against you. It is a very fun hole and one that I say you should just got for it! In your quest to make par with a good solid tee it is very possible to do so.
Some Things To Know About The Trump International Golf Links
Amazing Practice Facilities!
Man this course really does have it all! To help get you in the mood for your game, have a little fun or maybe actually work on your game! The Trump International has some phenomenal practice facilities. First of all is their driving range which at a little over 22 acres is one of the largest in the whole country! They also have a putting green and short game training area with little greens, bunkers and other obstacles to help you improve your short game.
One thing that they really do take a lot of pride in here is their Professional Coaching. If you do want to have a little tune up, maybe get an experienced set of eyes to tell you where you are going wrong or perhaps just learn a few new tricks. Then the professional coaching is something that you will most certainly want to look into. Taking in a pro lesson and then hitting the links to put what you have learned into use is a great idea if you ask me!
Their Caddie Service
They do have a number of incredibly well trained and knowledgeable caddies here at the Trump International Golf Links. This is a great course and you can make your game even better by having an experienced hand to offer a wee bit of advice here and there. As the caddie service here is fantastic, you will not be surprised to know they are in high demand. So to ensure that you have a caddie for your round, book ahead. Showing up on the day and expecting a caddie may lead to disappointment.
Other Things To Do Close To The Trump International
Where To Eat?
I am sure you will not be shocked to learn that the Trump International has a fantastic restaurant. MacLeod House Restaurant not only offers some amazing food, but with its roaring open fire, cheeky wee snug to have a nice vintage whiskey and just the general friendly atmosphere. There really is no need to go anywhere else for a drink or a meal.
Somewhere Else To Go
This place is so great that I very much doubt you will want to venture to far from The Trump International, but as the Aberdeen city centre is so close by a wee walk around the city centre is a great way to see some nice architecture and maybe pick up a little souvenir or two.
