Named after its’ celebrated designer Dr Alister MacKenzie, the MacKenzie Course is the only public Championship course in the North East of Scotland. 

Laid out in the 1920s by Dr Alister MacKenzie, the creator of Augusta National and Cypress Point, this championship course parkland retains the architect’s basic design. Described as an “unforgiving test that rewards the brave”, the par 70 (6,209 yards) demands players become immersed in the challenge.

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.

Read more 

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.

Dress Code

At Golf Aberdeen we do not have a formal dress code for golfers to adhere to whilst on the course. We do however ask that our golfers dress appropriately and with respect to other players.

We advise that appropriate footwear is worn whilst on the course to provide safety and protection in differing weather conditions.
