Playing the Course
Along three miles of North sea coastline lies the latest American inspired high profile course and resort at Balmedie.
The central focus of this Trump development is the golf course designed by Dr. Martin Hawtree, the acknowledged master of links golf course architecture.
Finally opening in July 2012 after seven years of protests and general objections from local naturalists, this is a top specification course with ten acres of grass pathways and long undulating, beautifully contoured greens.
It’s highly likely that major professional tournaments will be held here in future years.

The golf course follows a classical pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes.
All eighteen holes thread their way engagingly through the dunes, rising to find views of the sea and coastline, plunging into secluded valleys, offering a sequence of superlative topography, landscape, alternating spaciousness and enclosure, panoramic views, a rich texture of vegetation and wildlife habitats surrounding the golf holes.
