All holes have different playing tactics due to the undulation of the course. From the first tee the course appears to climb for the first two holes, but once you are on the second green any inclines after that are not too noticeable. Your thoughts are taken up with the challenge the course sets and the superb scenery and the overall experience is of rolling fairways lined with heather and heath.
Visitors return regularly to enjoy golf in this beautiful Banffshire setting where two of the holes (7th & 10th) feature in "Britain's 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes" by Geoff Harvey and Vanessa Strowger.
The 7th hole is one of the shortest holes in Scotland at 67 yards off the visitors tee across a deep gully and has been described as a testing picturesque little hole. The 9th tee is one of the highest in the UK at 1,294 feet above sea level, while the stunning 10th tee stands at 1,213 feet with a magnificent view of the town and has a vertical drop of 339ft from tee to green.
Our new clubhouse opened at the beginning of the 2001 season and officially opened on the 14th of July. Since then the club has seen many fantastic events ranging from members birthday celebrations to the annual presentation of prizes.
The peaceful surroundings have also made it the ideal place for some local companies to regularly hold training courses and seminars (Monday to Friday). If using the club in this way is of interest to you please contact the office for further details.
The club also caters for numerous golf outings throughout the season, many of which return year after year and the club is very proud of this fact. A number of them have been coming since long before our new clubhouse was built and this is testament to the course itself, but the new clubhouse has certainly made a considerable difference.
We hope you will keep us in mind for your next day out.
