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.
