Hospital Road, Ellon, AB41 9AW

    Set in the heart of the Buchan countryside, midway between the fascinating fishing trail and the historic castle country, this scenic eighteen hole golf course provides a memorable golfing experience for all standards of golfer.

    The parkland course is named after its benefactor Sir James McDonald who, in 1926, gifted the old woodlands to the people of Ellon. The original nine hole course wends its way through this magnificent forest with its stately trees and beautiful rhododendron bushes. Even though the forest is very close to the town it is alive with wildlife and if you are very lucky you may catch a glimpse of our native red squirrel. The well established first nine has been carefully constructed to maintain the parkland character. It has a natural stream that twists and turns across the course and features on almost every hole. We acknowledge that we are only the caretakers of a very beautiful and valuable natural habitat. Every effort therefore, is made to manage the course in an environmentally responsible way.
