The north-east of Scotland offers golf in its purest form, with breath-taking scenery, fast fairways, large greens and troublesome rough. And as you might expect from this region, the wind will often come into play when you’re making your way round even the inland courses. And even if the wind is unpredictable, the quality of the local courses is anything but.
You’ll find a number of famous-name venues here, as well as a great many hidden gems that are decidedly under the radar. Perhaps the best-known is also one of the oldest in the world, Royal Aberdeen. It’s a wonderfully visual course, hugging the shoreline of the North Sea and with many extremely picturesque holes, all laid out in a traditional out-and-back configuration.
Just to the north you’ll find Murcar Links, yet another venue in Scotland’s collection of world-class golf courses. As you find yourself transfixed by the views of the sea you might forget to notice the thick gorse that awaits many a wayward drive. Meanwhile, north of Aberdeen and on the way to Peterhead be sure to check out Cruden Bay, where the rugged lie of the land gives you an insight into how golf is played au naturel.
Another must-play for golfers visiting the Grampian region surely has to be Trump International in Aberdeenshire. Built around spectacular dunes and boasting equally spectacular sea views, it’s rightly regarded as a world-class golf course and a shining example of the art of course architecture. From the very first hole which plays along a beautiful valley beside the dunes, you just know you’ll be in for a special day.
There are many more, perhaps lesser-known but truly wonderful, courses to be enjoyed here, such as Ballater, so it’s easy to see why a tour organiser might not know which to include in an itinerary. Thankfully, the team at Platinum Golf know all there is to know about courses in Scotland in general and Grampian in particular. Our specialists will talk you through all the options that are open to you, fitting in perfectly with your days, your requirements and your budget.
And if you include a day or two without golf on your trip, why not explore what the local region has to offer? There are so many potential highlights, including Balmoral Castle, the Glenshee Ski Centre, Loch Muick, Haddo House and the Grampian Transport Museum. You will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the right accommodation, from cosy guesthouses to spectacular hotels and all points in between.
Take the mystery, not to mention the stress, out of organising the trip by letting the specialists guide you. And as well as finding the ideal tee times to fit in with your schedule, we can also help with other arrangements, including accommodation, sightseeing and transfers. Once we understand what you need, you can spend your time looking forward to a golf tour that has pure pleasure written all over it. To make a start, simply call Platinum Golf today on 01382 477552.

We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…
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!
