Murcar Links Golf Club

Golf Courses

Bridge Of Don, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, AB23 8BD

    Archie Simpson laid out the first course at Murcar in 1909 in spectacular links land in the north east of Scotland near Aberdeen.

    Master architect James Braid is known to have made alterations to the original layout in the early 1930s but there is no record remaining of precisely what refinements he made. Whatever they were between them Simpson and Braid have left a heritage of classic links golf which television commentator Peter Alliss once famously described as a course not entirely suitable for beginners. But the fact is that anyone who plays this magnificent links cannot fail to impressed by and take wonderful enjoyment from it. There can be some wicked bounces off the crumpled fairways and there are burns and the odd blind shot to contend with. The signature hole is considered to be the seventh - a 423 yard par four which is ominously called the Serpentine. From a high tee, the drive is over a twisting burn with a ravine and heavy rough on the left with towering dunes everywhere.
