Aboyne is the oldest Golf Club on Royal Deeside and started life as a nine-hole course on the village green as early as 1883. The current stretch of 6,033 yards was modernised and reconstructed some 100 years later and the present 18 holes was opened in August 1991.
Aboyne was selected to host the ScottishGolf Women's County Finals in 2016.
Scottish Golf has awarded Aboyne the "Scottish Junior Open" regional qualifier for North East Scotland on Sunday 2nd July 2017.
The course provides a fine test for golfers of all abilities. It presents a rich variety of memorable holes making the most of the natural variations in the terrain which is a mix of rolling parkland with inviting fairways and elevated links-like heathland with tighter targets. Mature trees and water are in play on many holes. Aboyne Loch is a notable feature lending character and scenic beauty to the course as well as providing a hazard to be avoided on the last hole of the relatively flat outward parkland nine. Thereafter, the course changes character to heathland terrain and climbs gently providing magnificent views of some lovely Aberdeenshire countryside.
Another small loch lurks at the 15th and the closing holes test the skill of the most seasoned campaigner. The home hole is a long par 3 and provides a worthy finish to a challenging round of golf.
The course lies on a free-draining soil and enjoys a surprisingly dry micro-climate. It is exceptionally well-maintained and shows little, if any, of the usual signs of the passage of golfers. There are two practice areas one for short game available to members and visitors. Scottish Golf has awarded Aboyne the "Scottish Junior Open" Regional qualifier for North-East Scotland which will be staged on Sunday 2nd July 2017.
