Golf Breaks in Grampian

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 hope to hear from you soon.

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.
