Balgownie links course was designed by Simpson/Braid. The course runs essentially out and back along the North Sea Shore, the outward nine through some wonderful dune formation, the inland nine of the plateau. An excellent balance of holes, strong par 4's, tricky par 3's - with the 8th surrounded by 10 bunkers, being our signature hole; and tow classic par 5's. The ever changing wind, small screens na da very challenging finish makes Balgownie a test for every level of golfer. Bernard Darwin wrote :-' It represented a huge gap in my golfing education not to have played Balgownie until now. Much more than a good golf course - A Noble Links'.
