Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf club is situated on the Aberdeenshire coast less than 15 miles from Aberdeen. The courses newer Front 9 offers fantastic views of the Ythan estuary, Forvie Sands, Newburgh Beach and the North Sea. Established in 1888, the Back 9 plays as a traditional Scottish links, described in National Club Golfers Top 100 Courses as Old fashioned links-golf at its finest, with blind shots, firm fairways, sandy ridges and punchbowl greens aplenty. The Front 9 added in 1994 offers a more modern feel, with tiered greens and holes laid out over more undulating land. It includes some quirky features, like the stone wall situated in the fairway of the 4th Hole Drovers. The Golfers Journal Senior Writer Tom Coyne and Author of A Course Called Scotland commented that it made it directly onto my list of the top holes in Scotland following his visit to the course in 2015 while writing the book.
