What the club says: With a growing reputation, Aboyne has hosted on behalf of governing body ‘Scottish Golf’ a variety of national and regional competitions.

We are honoured to be chosen by the R&A to host the LGU 'Coronation Foursomes' Finals in August 2018. Proud host of 2016 Scottish Women's County Finals. Host of Scottish Golf Junior Open Regional Qualifier 2017.

Aboyne has won many plaudits as one of the best manicured, varied and challenging inland courses in Scotland always maintained in pristine condition. The ultimate course of two halves, parkland and heathland, which challenges golfers of all abilities particularly the back nine featuring the unique topography based on historic medieval farmland.

Surrounded by heather capped mountains and sprawling pine forests, Aboyne is a captivating setting renowned as one of the most beautiful golfing venues in Scotland. Located under an hour from Aberdeen International Airport, we are only 70 miles from St Andrews.

Come and play our historic course and be challenged on one of the most varied and unique courses in the 'Home of Golf'. The warmest of welcomes awaits you at Aboyne Golf Club.

Beautiful

Just joined this club. Great course with quite a few water hazards, I have lost balls at everyone of them but I am a high handicap so don?t let that put you off. The greens are in amazing condition according to myself and every golfer I have spoken to. A credit to the groundkeeping staff.
The views are worth the green fees alone.

Great Outing course

Played in a corporate golf outing, lovely test for all handicappers. Couple of quirky holes on the back nine are more than offset by front nine and overall condition of the course.

Beautiful course next to Aboyne Loch set in spectacular scenery with views of the Cairngorm Mountains. The course would suit all level of player and is well maintained with immaculate fairways and greens. Has a lovely clubhouse with good facilities and excellent food. Staff are all very friendly and helpful.
