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.

Loved the experience tinplate this course on my birthday. It was a special drive to braemar via devils elbow and play this course for a few bucks. Nice surroundings and mountain views.

A must play in Scotland is Cruden Bay in Scotland. The views of the dunes are just stunning. Just North of Aberdeen a hidden gem for every golfer.

Alford Course

Alford is always in fantastic condition when I play. The greens are the smoothest around. I’ve played there on and off for 20 years. Don’t be fooled by its length, it isn’t the longest course but it certainly is tricky! They adjusted the layout so that the 9th comes back to the clubhouse, perfect if you don’t want to commit to 18. The clubhouse atmosphere is what sets it …

First, there were no significant negatives. The course is an interesting one with each hole different. I always prefer courses where the challenges are based on the terrain and not 'bunkeritus'. The clubhouse is of a high standard and we enjoyed the carvery which was served well.

Stonehaven Course

Zeer mooie uitdagende baan. Hoogte verschillen en over klifs spelen. Lunch in het clubhuis is prima en niet duur en een zeer mooi uitzicht over de Noordzee.

Magnifique parcours au bord de la mer. Vues splendides sur la côte, Stonehaven et le château de Dunnottar. On est souvent en dévers et sur certains trous on joue en aveugle. Bon restaurant.

Peterhead Old Course - Craigewan Links

En fantastisk linksbana till ett mycket bra pris med personal som är mycket tillmötesgående och gästfria. Man kan se havet från de allra flesta ”hålen”. Det är kort att gå mellan green och nästa tee över hela banan. Tyvärr ingen drivingrange. Hit åker jag väldigt gärna igen.

Play 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.
