Golf in Aberdeenshire

Aberdeenshire is a county in the North East of Scotland and has a rich prehistoric and historic heritage. Stone circles and cairns were constructed predominantly in this era. In the Iron Age, hill forts were built. Traditionally, Aberdeenshire has been dependent upon the primary sector (agriculture, fishing, and forestry) and related processing industries. Over the last 40 years, Aberdeenshire has been focusing more on the oil and gas industry.

Golf in Aberdeenshire
Fraserburgh Golf Club - founded back in 1777 - is the oldest golf club in Aberdeenshire, the 5th oldest club in Scotland and the 7th oldest in the World. Fraserburgh Golf Club would appear to be the oldest golf club in the world still operating under its original name. Aberdeenshire is known for its high-quality links courses, like Cruden Bay Golf Club, Murcar Links, Fraserburgh Golf Club and Trump International Golf Links. Except for the latter golf club, green fee rates in Aberdeenshire still are quite reasonable. We would definitely recommend Aberdeenshire as a golf destination, but you will need to use appropriate clothing, as it can be cold and windy here. When visiting Aberdeenshire, a good idea would be to visit the Balmoral Castle, which is the Scottish Highland residence of the British royal family. Aberdeenshire is also home to Cairngorms National Park and Aberdeen - although not part of Aberdeenshire - is certainly worth a visit. Aberdeen is well connected globally with its own international airport, railway station, ferry terminal and bus station. As the gateway to the Highlands, and only a 2.5 hours’ drive to Edinburgh or Glasgow, Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are perfect to start your Scottish journey.

Trump International Golf Links
Sencillamente espectacular. Un diseño único de una leyenda como es Dr. Martin Hawtree, por ser hijo y nieto de dos grandes diseñadores de campos de golf, no podía ser menos. La experiencia en Aberdeen es única desde que uno aterriza y llega en coche por sus carreteras costeras limitando con el mar del norte. Pero, una vez de se llega al cruce de Trump International, u…

Cruden Bay Golf Club
The golf course has a lot of history. It is recommended to ask for a little tour as soon as you pop in at the club house, and they will happily explain you: -How members used to arrive by train from all over Scotland to play at these gourgeous links -A map showing where visitors from all over the world show up In my opinion, they should have kept the old hotel, (Rather…

Braemar Golf Club
De weg naar deze hoogst gelegen baan van Schotland is spectaculair en een feestje op zich. Zoals vaak in de uk geen drivingrange maar slaghok op p terrein. Puttinggreen voor het clubhuis die overigens keurig eruit ziet. 1e 9 vrij heuvelachtig en er zijn geen buggy’s dus met de trolley. Bleek achteraf prima te doen. 2e 9 niet echt special wat korte holes en course managem…

Trump International Golf Links
