The oldest club on Royal Deeside, Aboyne is an immaculately maintained, challenging golf course with spectacular views of the surrounding hills & countryside. 6000 yards of impeccable fairways and faultless greens - a golfer's haven. Aboyne embraces every golfer, from beginner to Scottish Internationalist. Our welcoming, family friendly clubhouse allows you to soothe away your cares on our sunny balconies where you may catch a glimpse of an osprey, otters or the swans on the loch. Aboyne is the understated jewel in Aberdeenshire's golfing crown.

Our long-established course has won many plaudits as one of the most memorable tests of inland golf in Scotland. Originally designed by Archie Simpson, the course was modernised and reconstructed some 100 years later by renowned architect Martin Hawtree with the present 18 holes opening in August 1991. Come and play our unique topography and enjoy one of the most varied and respected courses in ‘The Home of Golf’.

Visitors are delighted with the contrast found between the front and back nine. The course 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 tree-lined parkland nine. Thereafter, the course changes character to rugged heathland and climbs gently providing magnificent panoramic views over the Aberdeenshire countryside. Golfers are tested by the course's distinctive feature which sees a number of holes with undulating fairways formed around the historic geography of medieval farming which add a unique terrain challenge requiring more brains than brawn to play. Lying on free-draining soil, the course enjoys a surprisingly dry micro-climate.

Mens White Tees: 6,003 yards. Par 68. SS 69 Ladies Red Tees: 5,362 yards Par 72. SS72
