Running on the Aberdeen beach front, golf has been played in this area since 1661. Kings Links Golf Course is set between the city and the sea and using the natural undulating terrain of the dunes, along with the varying wind conditions, Kings Links offers an enjoyable challenge for golfers keen to experience authentic links golf. The hollow sound you hear when you strike an iron shot and the undulating fairways make Kings Links an absolute dream to play. Described as “golf in the raw”, watch out if the wind is blowing! At 6289 yards Par 71, with three par 5s and four par 3s the course has great variation. Kings Links is located on the Aberdeen coastline making it very accessible. The outward nine holes are played facing north, with the inward nine holes played facing south. It is a typical links course with a sandy surface, but little rough. Despite the lack of rough, the mass of bunkers and extremely fast greens create a real links type test to rival any course in the area. It’s a must visit if your in Aberdeen or surrounding areas.
