Unlike other new developments that have sprung up in the past decade, Craibstone has somehow eluded the teething problems that befall many new courses.
Although the saying is overused, Craibstone has the look of a young course on old shoulders. The course opened in 2000 and is attached to the Scottish Agricultural College. It is very well known for its immaculate greens and is always kept in great shape. Good views are to be had over Aberdeen and its hinterland. The run of holes from the sixth to the 13th give you the chance to pick up some birdies before the home stretch.
