IMPORTANT

In 2017 we are building a new Golf Centre which is close to the 1st tee and 18th green of the Championship Course. This means there will be unavoidable building work noise.

In 2018 there will be additional course restrictions due to the staging of the Open Championship:

Championship Course-from 21st May to 30th June 2018 key landing areas will be protected and the compulsory use of a mat will come into play should a players ball finish in that area.

Burnside Course-the 18th hole will be out of play from early May 2018 to the end of August due to stand construction. Other work may impact other holes.

Buddon Links-the 1st and 18th holes may be impacted for a few days after The Open

The above is subject to change and possibly at short notice.

ALCOHOL

The consumption of alcohol is forbidden on all courses

BOOKINGS

It should be noted that groups of less than four may be joined to make a four ball.
