Winter turf protection measures - Read more

Following the significant rainfall that we have had over the past few weeks, we will be putting in a level of turf protection on our golf course fairways over the rest of the winter period.
Whilst the Preferred Lies Rule is there to help protect the turf, the divots created on the wet fairways do not get a chance to heal over the winter.
To combat this, the following protocols will be in place at Hazlehead and Kings Links golf courses.
  • From Monday 7th December 2020 all golfers will be required to play off mats when playing Hazlehead courses during the winter period.
  • 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.
Please also be advised that from Monday 7th December 2020 all golfers at Kings Links:
  • Must lift their ball and place at the side of the fairway (white lined). This will not apply if you are using a mat.
  • The ball can be played as required when 20 yards from the putting surface. This will also remain in place throughout the winter period.
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 winter.
Running on the Aberdeen beach front, golf has been played in this area since 1661.

Set between the city and the sea and using the natural undulating terrain of the dunes, along with the varying wind conditions, Kings Links offers an enjoyable challenge for golfers keen to experience authentic links golf.

The current Kings Links course was laid out in 1872 and it is a classic links course so characteristic of Scotland’s east coast. Think big dunes, very quick greens and lots of bunkers. Described as “golf in the raw”, watch out if the wind is blowing! At 6289 yards Par 71, with three par 5s and four par 3s the course has great variation.
