Respected guys in the game such as Geoff Shackleford, Robert Thompson and Ian Andrew had recently raved about Fraserburgh Golf Club classing it generically as a hidden gem. So myself and a buddy teed it up at 7.35pm Sunday under blue skies and a setting sun ready to shove as much golf in as the light allowed.
What happened out there was special. I fell in love with an authentic links crafted through the dunes with the raw attributes which would stun visiting golfers. This James Braid designed links on the Northeast corner of Scotland is one you MUST visit.
Formed in 1777 making Fraserburgh Golf Club the 7th oldest in the world it is some what surprising it has taken so long for people to start talking about Fraserburgh as a true Scottish links worth visiting.
I find it immensely satisfying to find these wonderful links golf courses in Scotland hidden away and reading the wonders that they offer. To play it, last night was something special. A round which I will remember for a long time and one that I will repeat very, very soon.
A more comprehensive review of Fraserburgh Golf Club will come shortly but for now enjoy these photographs.
In Scotland golf beauty is in it’s simplest form. It really is the simple things that mean the most to me.
