Visitors from overseas should be aware that Aberdeen Airport (ABZ) is only 9 miles from Murcar Links Golf Club and it connects with the rest of the world via many major UK and European International Airports, thus making travelling convenient and easy.
By road, Aberdeen is a 3½ hour car journey from Glasgow Airport and a 2½ hour car journey from Edinburgh Airport. Murcar Links Golf Club is approximately 5 miles north of Aberdeen City Centre and is also only:

- 5 miles from Trump International Golf Links
- 18 miles from Cruden Bay
- 63 miles from Carnoustie
- 84 miles from St Andrews
- 88 miles from Nairn
- 106 miles from Gleneagles
- 146 miles from Royal Dornoch
From Carnoustie, Gleneagles or St Andrews look for the A90 north to Aberdeen; and from Aberdeen Airport, Nairn or Royal Dornoch follow the A96 east to Aberdeen.
Once in Aberdeen on either of these roads, follow the A90 signposts for the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre and Fraserburgh. Murcar Links Golf Club is just off the A90 Aberdeen to Fraserburgh road at its roundabout junction with the B999 road to Tarves (at B&Q); one roundabout junction North of the AECC. Follow the signs to the course, ie towards the North Sea and down the single-track road. From Cruden Bay follow the A90 south to Aberdeen.
