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

Cannot think of an aspect of our trip that could have been better. The itinerary you created was first rate, and your execution through Alan and James, was flawless. Yours and Stuart’s attention to detail than follow through, were indeed worthy of your “platinum” name. Truly a trip of a lifetime. I would serve as a reference anytime. Thank you so much again.

Best, John. J

I echo everything John said. It was a tremendous, unforgettable trip. Everything was top-notch — accommodations, food, weather, caddies, and all the beautiful courses. I miss my Scottish breakfast! A special tip of my new Scottish tweed hat to all our drivers, especially Alan. He took really good care of us, showed us some interesting local things “off itinerary” and was just a joy to travel with.

Thanks again for all work you did getting me a buggy at each course. It made it all possible for me.

Dear Lynda, Sending a short note of thanks for all of the support organizing the trip last week. I can say with confidence this was the best golf trip I’ve ever taken! The itinerary, schedule, accommodations, restaurants and on and on were all great. Special thanks to both you and Stuart for helping to make my 50 year celebration a memorable one. I hope to be able to book another trip again in the future.
All the best,

Brian D

Dear Stuart and Lynda,

I wanted to thank you for a fabulous trip to Scotland last week. You put together the perfect golf and stay package and everything went flawlessly (including really nice weather). We also enjoyed having James as our driver. He was the best! Erick, Jim, Brian and I all had a great time.

This was the definition of a “bucket list” trip and the experience did not disappoint. The only downside is, after nearly a year of anticipation, it is hard to believe the trip is already over and we are back home.

Thank you again. I would definitely love to use you again for future travel and will be very comfortable recommending you to friends and family.

Thanks Linda,
Great to meet you both as well.
It was a great time
We will be in touch for sure.


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!


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.
