Located in rolling countryside on the outskirts of Aberdeen, Newmachar Golf Club is home to two exceptional 18-hole courses. Both courses were designed by Dave Thomas, with Hawkshill opening in 1990 and Swailend following seven years later.
Despite its youth, Hawkshill looks and feels more mature than its age suggests, mainly due to the stately pine and birch trees flanking the fairways. With clever bunkering and water hazards coming into play in no fewer than seven of the holes, this is one of the area’s toughest tracks.
Swailend is not as mentally challenging as its older brother, but its subtle contours, well positioned bunkers and testing greens present every standard of golfer with a challenge which should not be underestimated.
Although challenging, Newmachar provides two memorable golfing experiences.
