Winter turf protection measures - Read more

Following a review of the ground conditions at Balnagask Golf Course, we will now be putting a level of turf protection in place over the rest of the winter period.  Please be advised that from Wednesday 13th January 2021 all golfers will be required to play off mats whilst playing Balnagask for the remaining winter season.

The ball can be played as required when 20 yards from the putting surface.

Please show the starter your personal mat on arrival, otherwise mats are available from the starters box to purchase for £3.00 each.

We thank you in advance for respecting the above measures, which are being put in place to add a level of protection for the fairways through the remaining winter period.

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 simply breathtaking.

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. 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.
