Royal Aberdeen a well-established golf club presenting a true test of seaside links golf. Set among wonderful sand dunes by the sea, the wind is often a factor. Murcar next to Royal Aberdeen, is one of Scotland's Top 20. This is a typical links course with bracing sea breezes. Stonehaven just south of Aberdeen is another hidden gem. An inland course situated partially on cliff tops with outstanding views. Cruden Bay is a must, if you can play only one course in the Northeast, this is the one! A fabulous, fun course with stunning colors and beautiful views. One of the best courses in Scotland. Cruden Bay presents a real challenge for the serious golfer whereas the holiday player will appreciate the magnificent views over the bay to Slains Castle. Lossiemouth lies to the north of Elgin, this is another seaside links course. Off the beaten path, but worth playing. Carnoustie is extremely demanding, but when the wind blows, it is brutally hard. The 14th has become one of the most famous holes in golf, 60 yards short of the green, there is a sharp swell in the fairway into which have been cut two deep bunkers that appear like "eyeglasses". Thus, the 14th has been aptly named Spectacles. The bunkers stare at you as you debate whether to lay up or shoot over them to reach the green. Muirfield the home of the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, is one of the most challenging tests of your driving skills. Although there is no water on this course, every hole is a challenge. Good shots are instantly rewarding, bad shots are disastrous.
Laid out on the East Lothian coast in Scotland, Muirfield is flatter than most championship links -a feature which pleases many American visitors who aren't used to playing on Britain's typically up and down coastal courses .Muirfield is a true test of golf. It gives you the chance to play to your handicap -so often courses are designed with only the most skilful and powerful in mind. There are few humps and hollows to slew your ball off line. Only one tee shot is blind and most bunkers are visible from the tee. There are no great carries between tee and fairway, no water hazards and few trees. On the other hand, your drives need to be accurate: avoiding the many bunkers -151 in all -is the key to a good score. And when you reach the greens -small by links standards -you need to be wary of subtle contours. The course is relentless. There's practically no let up between the 1 st tee and 18th green. Tony Jacklin considers the start at Muirfield to be 'one of the scariest opening holes in golf'.
