Golf in the north east of Scotland or Aberdeenshire has gone widely unappreciated. But with the arrival of Trump International in 2012 the region has received a significant boast to golf tourism. This was most welcome with the drop off in the oil industry in the years beforehand.

The other big name courses in the area are Royal Aberdeen and Cruden Bay Golf Clubs. Royal Aberdeen held a successful Scottish Open championship in 2014 which was won by Justin Rose. A classic out & back links course that runs through the dunes and gorse, Royal Aberdeen is a stern test of golf. Cruden Bay is a fabulously quirky links with some of the best views in golf. The course was originally designed by the legendary Old Tom Morris and later renovated by Tom Simpson.

Other notable courses are the links of Peterhead, Newburgh on Ythan and Fraserburgh. The parkland course of Newmachar Golf Club is a good alternative to the links golf.

Aberdeen is a cosmopolitan city with many good bars, restaurants and hotels. And is easily reached with regular daily flights from many European cities.
