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.

Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
