Trump International Golf Links
Located North of Aberdeen, settled between Cruden Baya and Murcar Links, Trump International Golf Links brings a completely new brand of links golf to the North Sea Coastline. 18 dramatic holes, designed by Dr Martin Hawtree, weave their way through The Great Dunes of Scotland, creating an amphitheatre on every tee box. Described by the owner as “The World’s Greatest Golf Course”, it can be hard to argue otherwise.
The experience starts at Trump International Links before you step on the first tee. The practice facilities are world class, along with the biggest practice putting green you are likely to step foot on. Hours could be spent warming up the flat stick on this vast surface and you might just learn a thing or too about what is waiting for you out on the course.
Each par 3 is spectacular and daunting, with the signature 3rd hole beautiful from wherever you are standing on it – some spots more ideal than others. A great mix of risk and reward par 4s and make or break par 5s, this golf course has it all and more. It is no surprise to see it soar up the rankings of Scotland’s best golf courses, since it was opened in 2012.
Another highlight is the 14th and 18th championship tees, which both play in opposite directions from a truly enormous dune. It is worth a wander up to see the breath-taking vistas of what lies ahead for anyone brave enough to take on these holes at maximum yardage.
Accommodation is also available onsite at the opulent MacLeod House. Offering luxurious guestrooms and fine dining all in one.
