Scotland's Finest Golf Courses - Trump International

Located in the north east of Scotland between the renowned Murcar and Cruden Bay Links courses, Trump International opened in 2012. It is the latest American owned Links course to hit the Scottish coastline and also follows in the trend of other modern Scottish championship Links courses that have opened on scenic parcels of rugged coastal land (Kingsbarns, Renaissance and Castle Stuart) .

The course was designed by the renowned architect  Martin Hawtree who has worked on numerous projects for the R&A involving Open Championship courses. The decision to use Martin has paid off as the course has a classic feel to it. The course is laid out in a traditional north-south direction in order to capture the magical natural topography of the sand dunes. The views that are on offer throughout the course are extraordinary and it has been a remarkable feat that a course under 5 years old looks like it belongs amongst the landscape.

As with all links courses the bunkers and wind will play a huge part on your score. There are 18 bunkers on the 18th hole alone which means that accuracy is paramount throughout the round. The course has also been designed to welcome all levels of golfer as there are 5 tee boxes available for use.
