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.

WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO ACHIEVE 

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.
