Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club
Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club was founded in 1888 with 9 holes on the Udny links to the east of the village, bounded on 3 sides by the Foveran Burn and the Ythan Estuary.
The course was extended to 18 holes by the addition of 9 new holes on Foveran Links in 1995, and now measures 6423 yards.
It is a challenging par 72 Championship links course that demands accurate golf from tee to green.
Each hole presents a different challenge, some with gorse-lined fairways, dog-leg par 5s, the waters of the Ythan estuary at the par 3 16th, and the wall on the par 4 4th. A great variety of wildlife can be found on and around the course.
The Ythan Estuary is famous for its breeding colonies of terns and eider ducks, which can be seen in great number and the variety of waders which can be seen feeding on the mudflats at low tide. A colony of Atlantic Grey Seals can usually be seen on the north bank of the estuary mouth.
At high tide you may be observed by a seal as you stand on the 16th tee. The clubhouse was opened in April 2001 by the 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie and a warm welcome awaits members and visitors alike.
Bar and catering are on the upper floor, from where the visitor will appreciate the stunning panoramic views over the back 9, the Ythan Estuary and the dunes.
Our PGA professional can provide tuition, either on our practice area, or indoors in the swing studio and can arrange the hire of golf buggies, clubs and trolleys.
Bookings can be made either by phone or on-line through our website.
