ABOYNE GOLF CLUB
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, when 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!
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.
The course provides a fine test for golfers of 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 on many holes, with the Loch of Aboyne 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 the Loch of Aboyne, 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.
