Please click here for updates on Balnagask Golf Course  

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. Found in the heart of a local conservation area, the stunning layout requires nerve and balance in equal measure.

Balnagask is a distinctive golf course offering a great variety of golf holes in a spectacular setting. Built at the mouth of Aberdeen Harbour and bounded by the North Sea the views available up and down the coast as well as across the busy harbour with the city beyond are breathtaking.

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 medieval Torry Battery.

Course Etiquette

Whilst on our courses, we expect all golfers to adhere to the local rules in place. As well as this, we expect all golfers to follow standard golf etiquette.

Standard golf etiquette:

Arrive on Time. Endeavour to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled tee time to ensure you are ready to go at the correct time.

Avoid Slow Play

When your group is not keeping up with the pace of play of the group in front of you, allow groups behind you to play through at an appropriate time if they wish to move quicker.

Although mobile phones are not banned on the course, we do not recommend that you use your phone whilst playing as this may cause slow play and may result in an accident. 

Help to Maintain the Course

Replace all divots. Use soil/seed mixture provided on the tee to fill in the divots that cannot be replaced directly (Hazlehead Pines).

Rake bunkers once you have played your shot – removing all footprints.

Repair all pitch marks

When on the green, do not stand where you might distract fellow players.

Do not make any noise when your fellow players are preparing to take their shot.


Never hit when there is a chance that you may hit another golfer or member of the public. If your shot looks like it may hit anyone on the course, you should shout “fore” immediately.

Abusive language and angry outbursts are not acceptable therefore you should keep your temper under control at all times. Be aware of the people around you as well as fellow players as this may make some uneasy.

Be aware of green staff and golf marshalls on the course. Alert any staff in your view before taking your shot.
