Royal Aberdeen

Course Info

Grampian, Scotland
All Courses

There are many courses in Scotland that can be described as a hidden gem, but Royal Aberdeen definitely isn’t one of them. It’s a gem, yes, but it’s anything but hidden. The eighth-oldest golf club in the world, it received its Royal patronage from Edward VII back in 1903. The iconic Balgownie Course is rightly regarded as one of the finest to be found anywhere, and it’s easy to see why.

A traditional out-and-in layout brings the visitor a chance to play through the dunes and along the seafront before returning back along a stunning, wind-affected plateau. The views of the water are so eye-catching and so breath-taking that you may find it difficult to focus on your next shot. Don’t worry, this is all part of the mystique that this iconic venue brings. From your opening tee shot on the first, played from just below the clubhouse windows, through to your final putt on the 18th, you’ll know that you’re in golfing heaven.

The area is also home to a fabulous range of tourist attractions and landmarks that will make even the non-golfing days an absolute pleasure. They include the famous Aberdeen Maritime Museum, Balmoral Castle, St Machar’s Cathedral and the Gordon Highlanders Museum. And as you might expect, Aberdeen and the surrounding area offer an extensive selection of accommodation options to suit all tastes and all budgets.

Royal Aberdeen can be included in tours that also feature nearby venues such as Cruden Bay, Murcar and Trump International.

Platinum Golf Scotland Testimonials

Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.

Michel & Marc

It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well.  Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows.  As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations.  And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable.  Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.

We loved our trip.  If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green.  Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special. 

Russell & Kelly

Thanks again for a fantastic trip !

We look forward to the next one !

We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!


Dear Lynda Yes we got the bag tags, thank you very much. And thank you for the great organisation. Everything went absolutely smoothly and even though we had a bit of an adventurous journey home with flight delays and cancellations we returned home with many great memories of a fantastic trip.

We will get in touch when we plan our return trip.

Kind regards Fiete


Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!


Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.

Michele & Johannes

Hi Lynda & Stuart,

First, back home safe & sound.

From the bottom of my heart, the two of you are absolutely amazing and delightful. But more than that, so capable. A truly glitch less nine days. So fun!


Our Scottish Golf and Whisky experience was wonderful! Thank you for putting together such a fabulous itinerary. Everything was so well thought out and perfectly timed

Basically, you put together a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything. We would highly recommend you to our friends who are interested in a Scottish golf experience.. Also, thank you for the lovely welcome gifts and taking the time to meet us that Sunday morning at St. Andrews.

When I asked Kevin to describe the trip in one word he said “perfect”, Glynnis said “spectacular” and my word was “awesome”. Pretty simple but the words fit our pictures (almost 1,000) and our memories.

Bill, Kevin & Glynnis

Thank you Lynda and Stewart, the trip was excellent in every way


We got the photo from Panmure and it is so good! Definitely going on my office wall!

My boys and I loved Panmure. As we have discussed before, it is exactly the kind of course and club I love to visit when here. While all the trophy courses are wonderful, they do have a bit of commercialism that I like to ignore. None of that at all at Panmure, just pure golf and pure class.

Thanks for these photos, they are great.

All my best and thanks from my entire family,
