Royal Aberdeen is certainly a great course, but Murcar is nothing less.
Murcar is just as you hope, expect and want Scottish links golf to be
As well as offering a genuinely good yet enjoyable test of golf, Murcar has that intangible something else – a homely, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere
Quite why it lives in the shadow of Royal Aberdeen and Cruden Bay is beyond me. It is the equal of both, if not better
Murcar and Royal Aberdeen are among the best 36 hole combinations in Scottish golf. Murcar is plain fun with lots of memorable holes…..I had the distinct feeling of playing golf inside a pinball machine.
Murcar satisfies everybody who wants to play real links golf. I am surprised that this golf course is not as famous as it deserves, as it is a real test of golf in a very friendly atmosphere. You will enjoy the course, the scenery, the people, the restaurant – the whole club!
One of the most underrated links courses in Scotland. I can’t speak highly enough about the place. The friendliness of the Club was unique. This is a Top 50 course not to be missed. An absolute must play course. It’s tremendous entertainment, all the way round.
Murcar is blessed with all the ingredients necessary for great links golf
The Murcar Links’ll shred you in a heartbeat. I can’t wait to return.
A classic links challenge
