Newmachar Golf Club is located on the outskirts of Aberdeen, only five miles from the international airport and the village of Dyce.
The Hawkshill Championship course was designed by Dave Thomas and opened for play in 1990. It measures 6730 yards from the medal tees, and is set amongst mature silver birch and Scots pine trees. Water hazards, combined with strategic bunkering of fairways and greens, make this one of the toughest tests of golf in the area. The course has a par of 72, SSS 74, and a US Slope Rating of 143.
