Played Trump Aberdeen the other week. What a place! Couldn't have been any luckier with the weather for the time of year, sun was out and flat calm.

The course is sensational, first 9 for me better than the back 9 despite the more imposing dunes on the back 9. What did annoy me was it was overly difficult for no reason. I get the rough being tight and long, that is the way its meant to be but the amount of unnecessary bunkers on the course either in the landing area for drives or for the lay up areas for longer par 5's.

Challenging enough for me on a calm day, any bit of wind and could be close to unplayable for an average golfer.

The steak pie at the halfway house was worth the trip on its own!
