“I am very proud of my association with Murcar Links, since Davie Hird brought me to the Club as a junior, through playing for the Club as a junior and in the men’s teams and to reaching the Scottish Boys Final playing out of Murcar….so many great memories.
It was also a proud time for me to come back to the Club years later to redesign and rebuild the Practice area and to design and implement enhancements and improvements to the golf course.”
“It was a great experience during the course improvements in 2006 working with Graeme Webster of Team Niblick.
Seeing such an acclaimed architectural golfing brain work, so Murcar Links could evolve there asset into the current plethora of the Top 100 courses in Scotland”.

“Because an individual owns some golf clubs and a few golf balls and take them on to a golf course to put one to the other in the generally accepted fashion, does not make that person by definition, a golfer”
