    The sensational Trump International Golf Links has certainly not gone under the radar for a number of reasons, but before delving into those reasons, one thing we can all now agree on is that Mr Donald Trump has with the help of respected golf course architect Martin Hawtree, created a very special links course which is nothing but first-class.

    Stretching along the coast, just a short drive north of Aberdeen in the north-east of Scotland, the course is located on a beautiful piece of land considered a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This is what caused most of the controversy and opposition to the project in the early phases, but once this wave of antipathy was dissipated, they could continue with creating one of the finest links golf courses the world has seen.

    Routed along the dune systems which had built up over hundreds of years, the course blends seamlessly into the surrounding area with not a cart path to be seen anywhere on the course, with instead numerous grass paths leading the way from one hole to another. As you would expect from a Trump course, attention to detail was of primary concern, with every hole having a minimum of five tee boxes and the 18th fairway having of course, eighteen pot bunkers.

    However, despite the serene surroundings, do not visit here expecting a walk in the park – this is a brutal and challenging golf course suited to lower handicaps. Long gorse, strong cross-winds, strategically placed bunkers and fast greens all combine to ensure there is no easy shot on the course and we thoroughly recommend you choose your tee boxes carefully, putting vanity aside.

    Playing golf courses like this are what golf vacations are for. Not only is Trump International Golf Links already being talked about as one of Scotland’s best golf courses, it is also being touted as one of the world’s finest. Come to Scotland, come to Aberdeen and make sure you play this Trump golf course in Scotland.

    The 22-acre grass driving range is one of the largest in Scotland with both north and south facing tees.

    To complement the driving range, there is an impressive short game area featuring six different greens, bunkers and various other lie conditions. Add to this a 3,500 square metre putting green, there will be no excuse for not hitting a perfect first tee shot.
