Nicely maintained course with great views of Aberdeen. A bit noisy due to the harbour and the construction work going on at the new harbour but I would definitely play again and would recommend the course.

Played my first round today. Course was in great condition and the views were stunning over the harbour and back over the city. Quite a few of the holes have very steep fairways and blind tee shots so be prepared to do lots of steps. Wind can make tee shots tricky also. Recommend to anyone looking for a great round of golf. Plus 20 handicappers would probably struggle

Fantastic condition despite the weather throughout October and early November. Still on the main greens but on forward tees.Course is exposed and the wind can make for a challenging but fun round. Plenty of blind holes to test your tee shots and you get a good workout with the undulating layout.Can be a bit confusing on a number of holes as to where you go for the next.Thouroughly enjoyed my November round.

In their Words…….

Balnagask is a distinctive golf course and offers a great variety of golf holes in a spectacular setting. Built at the mouth of Aberdeen Harbour and bounded by the North Sea with views available up and down the coast as well as across the busy harbour with the city beyond are breathtaking. Widely acknowledged as one of the best municipal 18 hole courses in Scotland, James Braid, Archie Simpson and the Hawtree family all had a hand in carving out this coastal golf experience.

The golfer will enjoy the naturally rolling coastal landscape offering hidden fairways, elevated tees, gorse walled ravines and a host of interesting features including the historic Girdleness Lighthouse and the medieval Torry Battery.
