Call the USPGA, Aberdeenshire Golf Offer Scotland


At Faraway Fairways we believe in a little bit of sport and offer you the chance to reclaim the cost of your tour if you can correctly predict the outcome of a nominated major championship. Normally we have to restrict this to lower cost options, but the Aberdeenshire Golf Offer, Scotland makes an exception. Not only do you get to play the great links of the North on a refund, you also benefit from some of the highest class accommodation the region can offer.

The Aberdeenshire golf offer, Scotland begins on a Sunday. We need to get to Aberdeen and this can take about three hours from Edinburgh or Glasgow. It would be nice to break this journey up a bit. Well we can. St Andrews isn’t inconveniently out of the way, and with Sunday on the Old Course thrown open for public walking access or guided tours, what better way to get into the mood than treading the fabled fairways

Having settled in at ‘auld Aberdeen’ the golf begins on the Monday. The first assignment will see you tackle the links of Murcar, a European tour venue and home of Paul Lawrie. On the Tuesday you get to grips with one of Scotland’s favourite courses at Cruden Bay. This world top-100 venue is a cult classic with its many idiosyncrasies and quirks lending it a quality untouched by time. Wednesday has a regal air as you tackle Royal Aberdeen, a Scottish Open venue and host of the Seniors Open. Many good judges believe Royal Aberdeen to be the finest outward nine in Scotland, a series of holes threading their way through magnificent sand dunes. Thursday sees you take on the mighty Trump International Links, a world top-50 ranked course and home to some of Scotland’s most impressive and dramatic holes. Again its set in the highest dune system in Europe and is stunning. Finally we need to get back to Edinburgh and so spend the evening at Dalmahoy, host the 1992 Solheim Cup and within easy reach of the airport. If you’re on a later departure, we’ll throw you a round in!

The opportunity is yours. Will you take it? Well if you’ve ever looked at this collection of great northern links but passed them up in favour of the ‘usual suspects’ first, then you probably already know you should play them at some point. Faraway Fairways are offering you the chance to do so on a fantastic deal. Call the USPGA, and win Aberdeenshire! You’ll need to move quickly though in order to cash in the call the USPGA Aberdeenshire Golf Offer, Scotland. The decision to run this deal is taken at risk, our exposure to your judgement isn’t inexhaustible!.

The nine-hole Balgove course is the ‘baby’ of the St Andrews family, but being a member of the Links Trust does allow you to legitimately have satisfied the claim to have “played St Andrews”. Ultimately however, it is a practise ground to hone your links skills on and adapt to the demands of the sterner tests that await. Golfers treasure their scoring, particularly at St Andrews, and there is always a strong argument in favour of playing an introductory nine holes and making your mistakes when they don’t count. Built in 1972 and upgraded by Donald Steel in 1993, the Balgove benefits from being relatively modern and is designed to ease you into the challenges of links

Walking Tour

Walk the fairways of the Old Course and get up close and personal with some of golf’s most celebrated holes. See ‘Hell bunker’ at 14. Soak up the notorious 17th, the ‘Road Hole’, and the bunker known as the ‘Sands of Nakajima’. Survey the tee shot from 18 across the Swilcan Bridge and onto the ‘Valley of Sin’ in front of the iconic R&A Headquarters building that overlooks the green. We’re able to offer you an exclusive walking tour of the Old Course most Sundays. It’s also worth noting that St Andrews is home to the National Golf Museum with over 16,000 exhibits. St Andrews is also a legitmate non-golf attraction in its own right too, and is famed for its ancient university, it’s ruined catherdral and cliff hugging old castle.


Royal Aberdeen got first use of this beguiling duned landscape but there are more than enough humps and hollows to share. The concept of a risk and reward hole is well documented in golf, to some extent Murcar takes this further and extends it to the entire course. Accuracy off the tee rather than length is the key. The penalty for being wayward can be brutal on these tight fairways with unforgiving long rough. But this is precisely how Murcar seduces you. The reward for risking length is tantalising. The key to Murcar is it’s consistency. There are no real weak holes. It just keeps coming at you posing a different challenge on every tee. Murcar Links represents a truly challenging test. To play it requires every shot in the book and if the wind is up, a few more besides!

Cruden Bay

If you’re the purist that believes links courses should be wild, windswept, isolated and one step away from the sea, then Cruden Bay ticks all your boxes. The waves crashed into the bay of Cruden and set about carving a beautifully curving horseshoe. In addition, Cruden Bay also benefits from the same dramatic ‘high dune’ systems of the Trump International and Royal Aberdeen. Significantly though, Cruden Bay has greater personality, as it retains many original quirky old links features. It even counts a dog-leg par-3 amongst its garrison! We regard the sixth, Bliudy Burn, as the finest par five in Scotland, combining as it does, just about every classic links challenge on a single hole imaginable.

Royal Aberdeen

Dating from 1780, Royal Aberdeen is the sixth oldest golf course in the world, a traditional nine out and nine back layout. In 2014 Justin Rose won the Scottish Open here, whilst Tom Watson has added a seniors Open title to his collection. The outward nine is often regarded as Scotland’s finest, wending its way north through a spectacular dunescape. Like a fairground ghost train, one by one hazards present themselves. Undulating fairways, gorse, a burn, and of course a stiff wind blowing in off the sea are essential ingredients. It would be a mistake to overlook the merits of the back nine, which played on a raised plateau, is often subject to greater exposure. The final three holes rival any closing stretch in the country

Qualification requirements for play

Royal Aberdeen operates a handicap threshold of 24 for both gentlemnen and ladies. Players who are unable to meet this standard are invited to tackle the alternatives we’ve nominated instead

Trump International Links

Making use of Europe’s highest dunes system Martin Hawtree set about transforming this shoreline to realise Donald Trumps declaration to build the “best course in the world”. Snakes of green slither their way through valleys in this frankly fantastic landscape. Sticking to the golf, the early results have been impressive. A top-100 rating was secured in the opening season. The par three’s will probably emerge as the signature feature, the sixth and third in particular. In fact the opening half dozen holes just seem to get better and better when it no longer seems possible. Once this course beds down, it seemingly has the ingredients to go ‘all the way’.

Time to say Goodbye

Time, as they say, waits for no man, and sadly we’re no exception. Today it’s time to bid you farewell, hope you enjoyed your stay, and will consider returning soon. Better still, the return match awaits. We’ll ensure you get to your airport for a safe, and comfortable return across the Atlantic, where the benefits of flying east to west will now become apparent, as you land a mere two hours after you took off! Don’t forget to stay in touch through our blog, email, or the social networks, as we update information. Once again, thank you
