Golf Course Review

Trump International Scotland is better known as Trump Aberdeen. Laid out controversially in some of Europes largest dunes, Martin Hawtree was tasked with building what was to eventually become an Open venue on the Menie Estate, Balmedie, Aberdeen.

The classic layout of two out and back loops of nine make the most of the incredible parcel of land. There are plenty of elevated tees which provide you with exhilarating tee shots into the valleys created by the dunes below. The course could be described as a 'stadium links.'

Remove the name of the owner from above the front door and evaluate the golf on its own merits - it's good, really good. Built to be a world-beater, the course is as bold as its owner.

A new golf links, it competes in a similar space against the likes of Castle Stuart, Kingsbarns and Dumbarnie. Toe to toe against the old guard, it still has a ways to go to capture the grandiose claim of being the best links in the world.
