Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club was founded in 1888 on the Udny links, is set against a dramatic backdrop of the Ythan Estuary, the North Sea and the ever-changing dunes of the Sands of Forvie National Nature Reserve, and is just 3km up the coast from Trump International Golf Links, Scotland.
The course was originally presented to the people of the tiny fishing village of Newburgh for their enjoyment. The original 9 holes measured 1 mile, 401 yards but it was changed around 1901 and was played as 18 holes up until the design was extended back to 18 holes in 1996 and now has a growing reputation as a ‘tough but fair’ traditional gorse lined links course where classic links shot making is required.
The course has enormous variety, with every hole presenting a different challenge, and great fun to play (so says Golf World which ranked Newburgh as number 32 in their listing of “fun courses” in Great Britain and Ireland). A true hidden gem. The club boasts a modern and spacious clubhouse where a warm welcome awaits and golfers can relax and enjoy the spectacular vista.
