The large “Mackenzie” two-tiered greens, many well positioned bunkers and trees make the course a severe but fair challenge to golfers of all abilities.
Longside Golf Course
First opened 1979, extended to 18 holes in 1996. Lonside is a parkland course on the outskirts of the village of Longside, 6 miles from Peterhead. It's a short course with some tricky par 3's and 1 par 5. Even though fairways are open, a strayed shot may well end up in water as a river flows right through the course with added ditches etc. With a small but friendly club house. Meals served every day except Tuesday and roast dinners on Sunday. Altogether a nice course, ideal for a fun day out with tee times that can be reserved.
