Having read the previous reviews, I felt I had to add my own. My friends and I have played all over Scotland and Northern England, and all have a passion for the links. Out of all the links played including, Muirfield, St Andrews, Royal Aberdeen, Cruden Bay etc I still have a very special place in my heart for Murcar. Superb layout, great greens, and some very special memorable holes (Sepentine for one) Pound for pound, it has to be the best value around, especially as we managed to use 'two for one' tickets. Food excellent, friendly clubhouse etc. If you are coming to this area, do yourself a favour and give this a go....you won't be disappointed.

Have played Murcar a few times now and always found it a challenging course. Although it is short by championship standards the prevailing wind and tight fairways make Murcar a considerable test of accurate shotmaking.
Several good holes 3,7and 15, also two par fives off the medal tees which are usually reachable in 2.
Par 3's are dramatic and tricky in the wind (it always blows at Murcar.) Questionable layout around the turn.
Overall a well maintained course which demands a good short game and accurate driving. Nice and friendly clubhouse, OK grub, well stocked pro shop. Pricey for non-members.
Murcar is refreshingly different from other links courses in Aberdeenshire (with the exception of Cruden Bay) as a premium is set upon touch and accuracy rather than length off the tee.
Aberdeen Links, Royal Aberdeen and Nigg Bay (aka Blind Hole) all have their charms, but don't punish when you spray one 30 yards to the side.
The best layout in Aberdeen is Hazelhead- if only it could be moved 30 miles West and made members only.
