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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
