Architect

Hawtree Ltd

The 7,400 yard, par 72 championship golf course is designed by renowned golf course architect, Dr. Martin Hawtree, and follows a classical pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes. All 18 holes thread their way engagingly through The Great Dunes of Scotland; rising to find panoramic views of the North Sea and dramatic coastline, and plunging into secluded valleys rich with native vegetation. Each hole has six separate tees catering for all levels of golfer. The bunkers are placed to challenge the stronger player and not unduly punish the weaker golfer. All bunkers are turf-revetted in traditional style to combat wind, erosion and sand-blow.

Fabulous

Amongst the towering dunes every hole is so special and a sheer delight to play. We smiled all the way around and stopping for a long lunch after 9 holes before continuing on the back nine enhanced one of our days even further. I’d play here every day of the week. I was asked to do a list and comments on the courses I thought were the most fun and Trump Aberdeen came in at number 1 of all the courses we have played.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you why but there was a part of me that didn’t want to like this course but I couldn’t help but love it. It is not for me to sit in judgment on the man or the ecology (I didn’t buy anything from the shop!) but this course opened in his name in 2012 just looks like it has been there forever. If you’re expecting the world’s largest clubhouse or the world’s biggest bunker, think again. There is nothing showy or excessive about the lay-out (maybe too many bunkers on 18), the course has been moulded into a spectacular piece of coastal golfing land as naturally as I could imagine. It is difficult. Take a bagful of balls. When you stray off line you don’t see it again! But everything is laid out in front of you. There is a view of the shore from just about every hole. The short 3rd is a picture. The view from the 14th tee is another visual highlight. Every hole is different and distinctive and you could play the whole track without seeing a soul on a neighbouring hole. They are all enclosed and separate. There is one gushingly boastful plaque proclaiming the course the best in the universe or something but all else about the presentation was understated and in keeping with the stunning Scottish terrain. We preferred to call it Balmedie Links than TI but if you judge a golf venue by its golf course this is as good as I’ve ever played.
