In the early 1990s the course was extended to 18 holes and now covers a large area of ground from the Don basin, overlooked by the clubhouse, to mature woodland at the far perimeter, giving an interesting contrast between the old and new nines'

Many thanks to Kintore Golf Club for facilitating this camera's location and to The River Don Trust, River Don Salmon Fishery Board and River Don Brown Trout Improvement Association for capitally funding its installation.. Rising in the Cairngorm National Park and flowing 82 miles East down to the sea in Aberdeen, the Don is Scotlands 6th largest river. Home to a huge verietyof species, with Salmon, Seatroutand Brown Trout sharing their habitat with Otters, Kingfishers, Eagles and Buzzards. Red and Roe deer are often seen drinking at the riverside. The Don is known for its runs of salmon, particularly in the autumn, but it also has a spring and summer run of fish. During the calm warm summers evenings silvery seatroutmake an appearance, and indeed at this time the angler is never sure what will take their lure, with salmon, seatrout and brown trout all prolific in the river at this time. The Don is also home to eels, loaches, lampreys and pike.
