In Their Words ...........
Traditional Scottish Links Golf -Fraserburgh Golf Club - 7th Oldest Club in the World Est. 1777, Fraserburgh is the oldest golf club north of St Andrews.
Golf is first documented as having been played at Fraserburgh,Aberdeenshire in 1613 when the Parish Kirk Session records refer to a young lad named John Burnett who was chastised for "playing at the gouff" on a Sunday instead of going to church. He was ordered by the Session to be sent to the "maister's stool for correction". Following receipt of documents from the National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh it has been firmly established that the Fraserburgh Golf Club was founded on 14th April 1777 and that the membership consisted of nineteen of the most prominent "landed gentry" in the north-east of Scotland.
Take a brief drive from Aberdeen along the North East Aberdeenshire coast in Scotland and you will find a totally unspoiled, good old fashioned traditional links layout. If you are looking for a genuine slice of real Scottish golf history in an informal relaxed, welcoming setting at very reasonable green fee, this is it.
Today's feisty championship course, a James Braid (5 times Open Championship winner) redesign of the original layout, is one of the most natural links courses you will ever find. Be prepared for an invigorating ride around Fraserburgh's substantial sand dunes and an experience reminiscent of how golf must have been more than a century ago. Wildly undulating fairways, sand hills, wonderful views and some truly spectacular holes makes Fraserburgh a true links adventure from start to finish.
Just be prepared for an exceptionally warm welcome and one of the most stimulating,affordable, rounds of your golf break in the Aberdeen golf links trail of Cruden Bay,Royal Aberdeen,the Trump International Golf Development and Murcar Links. A warm welcome awaits you in our infomal relaxed modern clubhouse.
The clubhouse was built and opened in May 2006. It now gives us a clubhouse to compliment the excellent natural links course with panoramic views over both courses from the upper floor lounge and dinning area. The bar, dining room and lounge areas overlook the course and over the sand dunes to the sea.
