Our 150th Open Golf Tour #2: Murcar Golf Links View From The North Sea
Check out incredible Murcar Links Golf Club in Aberdeen, one of seven Scottish courses we’ll play on our second golf tour to The 150th Open at St Andrews next year.
Murcar Links is an attractive 18 hole course situated on the coast of Aberdeenshire, 10 minutes from Aberdeen city centre with superb views across the North Sea. The course, originally designed by Archie Simpson and revised by James Braid, it is located on a classic stretch of links land with massive sand dunes, undulating fairways, and is covered in whins and heather with some magnificent views across the North Sea.
Murcar is a European Tour venue and hosted The R&A 123rd Amateur Championship qualifying rounds in 2018.
The course rose to 96 in the Golf Monthly Top 100 courses and 47th in Scotland’s Top 100 courses 2019 by National Club Golfer. The judging panel highlighted ‘some great holes, scenically and strategically’, whilst the overall verdict was ‘enjoyable whether in the dune valleys or near the sea’.
Playing Murcar Links is a truly memorable and rewarding experience where each hole offers its own challenge.
