Balgownie Links at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club

  • The magnificent Royal Aberdeen Golf Club was founded as early as 1780 by the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen, and is noted as one of the very first golf clubs ever formed.

    Royal Aberdeen received its Royal status in 1903 by Edward VII and its reputation has grown ever since, being worldly recognised as one of the best and most historic golf clubs in Scotland.

    Originally designed by the Simpson brothers, the course was revamped by the brilliant James Braid to ensure this classic links course kept up with the modern game. The course boasts an immaculate condition year round and tests all golfers who are lucky enough to experience this cracking design.

    The entire length of the Balgownie Links boarders the coastline and offers breath-taking views of the ocean as you channel your way through the dunes and coastal peaks. A challenging course in its entirety as you battle the classic links layout combined with the stong prevailing wind, with no protection from the elements.

    The Balgownie Links has enjoyed a prestigious tournament history and has hosted the best Scottish and international events, being home to the Senior British Open, The Walker Cup and the Scottish Open in the more recent past.

    For the ultimate Scottish golf break, why not add Cruden Bay and the Trump International Golf Links for three all-round world class courses in an unforgettable venture to Aberdeen.

    The Balgownie Links at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club is a raw links course which will live long in the memory and well worth the jaunt up to the North of Scotland.
