Location and Route Planning

In their Words…….

The World’s Greatest Golf Course !. The 7,400 yard, par 72 championship golf course is designed by renowned golf course architect, Dr. Martin Hawtree, and follows a classical pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes. All 18 holes thread their way engagingly through The Great Dunes of Scotland rising to find panoramic views of the North Sea and dramatic coastline, and plunging into secluded valleys rich with native vegetation. Each hole has six separate tees catering for all levels of golfer. The bunkers are placed to challenge the stronger player and not unduly punish the weaker golfer. All bunkers are turf-revetted in traditional style to combat wind, erosion and sand-blow.

Dr. Martin Hawtree “The design of the golf course has involved an iterative process of studying the site in great detail, entering into a dialogue between the norms of classic and championship golf course layout on the one hand the physical, ecological, economic constraints of the site on the other; working out ideas and schemes for the layout as hypotheses and then testing them against the site.

A session of dialogue was enriched by the client on the one side and the project’s environmental consultants on the other. Indeed the iterative process has not stopped and will not stop until grass starts to germinate. Working closely with the environmental scientists the vision pivots on sensitive integration into this landscape.

The golf course follows a classic pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes. All 18 holes thread their way engagingly through the dunes, rising here to find views of the sea and coastline, plunging there into secluded valleys, offering a sequence of superlative topographies, landscapes, alternating between spaciousness and enclosure, then panoramic view, and the whole time a rich texture of vegetation and wildlife habitats surrounding the golf holes.

The landscape framework of the site comes close to an ideal. There is nothing missing and the layout as conceived would contain no weak holes. It will produce simply the most dramatic, stimulating, invigorating stretch of golf anywhere I have seen in my career”.

Perfect for golfers and non-golfers alike, The Brasserie at Trump International Golf Links, Scotland is a comfortable, relaxed environment with beautiful rich walnut, leather seating, warming fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of the Great Dunes of Scotland.

Wonderful day's golf at probably the best golf course I have played. Perfectly manicured and in fantastic condition.... Tees, fairways and greens simply perfect. Even the walk from green to the next tee in wonderful condition. Bob, introduced us to the course and gave us some tips for navigating our way around the course. A great welcome. Food in the restaurant matched the standards of the course. Well done all round.read more

Played in the stableford open today, always look forward to a game here, its easily the best course in scotland in my... opinion. Dissappointed to find out the first hole was on a temp green which kind of took the shine off an all but flawless experience. Opening hole and usually a very nice green to be on was cordoned off and a temp green made on the fairway. Apart from that the Staff in the clubhouse were fantastic and the food was top class.read more
