Stonehaven Golf Club
The course presents a stiff-enough challenge, particularly if the wind is blowing, but the course is short with a par 66 and features no fewer than seven short holes. The fairways are lush and the greens beautifully smooth – and don’t forget your camera, you will certainly want to photograph what is known as “Hitler’s Bunker” on the first hole – a grass bunker which is in fact, a bomb crater preserved from the Second World War. Then there’s the 13th hole, which crosses the Highland Boundary Fault Line, which splits Scotland from Arran and Helensburgh in the west to Stonehaven. It means that tee shots have to carry up to 100 yards to the safety of the fairway beyond. You then recross it on the 15th hole, a par three among the best in all Scotland.
