    Golf in the aberdeen area

    Hi all, i've literally not been on here for years but am just looking for some advice.
    I've been offered free accommodation in aberdeen over the next month so am thinking of having a golf weekend up there.
    Can anyone recommend what courses to play?
    I've looked at trump international and royal aberdeen but ideally would be looking for green fees for less than 100.
    Trump international looks amazing but is it worth the 200 plus green fee?
    Thanks

    Yep treat yourself at trump, or even play twice as the replay rate is a lot less, so you may get 2 rounds for about 300. If not, bunk on.

    After Trump, I'd rate them as:-

    Cruden bay
    Royal Aberdeen
    Murcar.

    Played trump, royal Aberdeen and cruden in an epic trip in June. I would rate them all highly but in that order. There isn't an ugly view from anywhere on trump. Cruden I found a little "quirky" but can't really tell you what I mean by that. Royal Aberdeen was great as well.
