Running on the Aberdeen beach front, golf has been played in this area since 1661. The current course was laid out in 1872 and it’s an old-school challenge for anyone with a feel for links golf. Think big dunes, very quick greens and lots of bunkers. Described as ‘golf in the raw’, watch out if the wind is blowing.

Golf has been played on the Aberdeen links since at least as early as 1780 and on the site of the current course since 1872. Set between the city and the sea this is a classic links course so characteristic of Scotland’s east coast.  Using the natural undulating terrain of the dunes, quick greens and varying wind conditions Kings Links offers an enjoyable challenge for golfers’ keen to experience authentic links golf. 

At 6289 yards Par 71, with three par 5s and four par 3s the course has great variation and will test even the most capable golfer when played in windy conditions.

"King's Links is a true representation of links golf as it plays differently every time you tee it up there" - Golf in Scotland, a 'Visit Scotland' Publication.

"I have recently returned to the city after 15 years working abroad and I had the absolute pleasure of playing the King's Links Golf Course . It was truly looking like a links golf course, the whole place was looking amazing.The greens were like a carpet. I don't know what's happened since I've been away but keep up the great work!"

Bradley, Golf Aberdeen customer.
