Aboyne Golf Course
The Aboyne Golf Course is a fabulous test of golf for golfers of all abilities, a superb golf course which is maintained to the highest standards.
Aboyne Golf Club is a long-established golf club, whose 18-hole course blends into the rolling countryside to the north of the Deeside village of Aboyne, and offers an especially warm welcome to visitors. Set amidst the scenic splendour of Royal Deeside, Aboyne Golf Club can fairly claim to have some of the finest vistas and panoramas of any course in Scotland.
Aboyne must be the best kept secret in golf! This immaculately maintained course set in beautiful highland surroundings harbours what many believe to be the best test of golf in the region, which added to its closeness to nature, cannot fail to stimulate emotions. What you may lose in the swing you will definitely gain on the round!
The course provides a fine test of golf for 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 at many holes, with the Aboyne Loch being a notable feature.
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. The setting, by Aboyne Loch , is superb with splendid views of the Dee valley, ranging from Clachnaben to the distant peak of Lochnagar.
There is every chance you will be diverted from the task before you by the visit of an osprey or the sighting of terns or a heron fishing the shallows of the loch. Facilities include a Practice Area, Putting Green, Clubhouse, Bar, Catering, Pro Shop, Buggy/Trolley and Club Hire, Shower facilities and Changing Rooms. Course Details: Type – Parkland, Holes – 18, Length – 6009yds, Par – 68, SSS – 69.
A warm welcome awaits members, visitors and parties alike, both on course, in the clubhouse which has full Bar and catering facilities and in the Pro Shop. When you have played Aboyne Golf Course once, you will come back time and time again.
