Auchmill was designed by top British golfer Brian Hugget, Ryder Cup player Neil Coles and golf course architect Rodger Dyer in the early seventies as a nine hole course, which was later extended to its current 18 holes.
Each of the trio, incidentally, have a hole named after them. The course has an elevated position and enjoys spectacular views of the city and Aberdeen airport. Due to the topography of the land, many holes offer a challenge even to the most talented of golfers. There are reduced rates for juniors, students and those who wish to play twilight golf.
