Become a 'Friend of Murcar' and help Murcar Links Golf Club support the future of Scottish golf

Murcar Links Golf Club has launched the ‘Friends of Murcar’ campaign to support essential investment in its championship course. The work will help secure the course’s long term future and ongoing role in the development of young Scottish golfers. While the majority of funds raised will be invested in the course, 10% of the final amount will be donated to the Paul Lawrie Foundation which provides opportunities for juniors of any age and background to start playing and competing in golf and fulfil their potential to the highest level.


Murcar Links’ Championship course, sitting on the picturesque Aberdeenshire coast, is a stunning and classic test of Scottish links golf, popular with members and visitors alike.

Following years of supporting local, national and European golf as a venue and partner, we are at a major turning point for the club as our championship course requires a new irrigation system to ensure we can continue to play a leading role in Scottish golf. We regularly host tournaments of all levels (including the European Tour’s 2015 Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play and we are joint host of the R&A's 2018 Amateur Championship) and have a particular commitment towards the development of youth golf, so the importance of the irrigation work is ever increasing.

Ultimately we are looking to secure the long-term future of our beautiful course and, with it, continue to provide opportunities for young Scottish golfers both financially, through donating 10% of funds raised to the Paul Lawrie Foundation, and practically, out on the course.

We have a number of attractive rewards available to donors from across the world and we would love you to be part of the Murcar family and join us on our journey to a sustainable future.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch via the Contact link at the top of the page.


To celebrate the launch of the Friends of Murcar campaign, we're running a special competition where anyone donating £20 or more will be entered into a prize draw to win a round of golf* with Aberdeen FC living legends, Russell Anderson and John Hewitt. The winner (and playing partner), to be drawn at the end of the campaign, will enjoy a fourball with 1983 European Cup Winners’ Cup hero, and Murcar member, Hewitt and former League Cup-winning club captain Anderson, currently an Aberdeen Football Club ambassador and also a regular player at the course. 

*winner will receive complimentary green fee for two people to play alongside Russell and John. Winner to be drawn at end of campaign. Mutually agreed date of prize round to be arranged after winner notified. Prize must be used by 30 September 2017.


As an additional element for the campaign, the team at the stunning 5 star Marcliffe Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen have donated three overnight stays, with breakfast, to be won by donors.
