Stonehaven are celebrating breaking into the top 100 courses in Scotland.
The Today’s Golfer supplement features the clifftop course at No 90 in its latest listings.
A total of 13 panellists with varying handicaps assessed design, setting, memorability, playability, consistency and presentation.
Stonehaven is “a course the panel found to be brilliant fun”.
They added: “James Braid and Archie Simpson advised on Stonehaven and there are holes over ravines and cliffs. The four on the other side of the railway line are modest, but the rest are superb.”
