WORLD TOP 50 COURSE
The Balgownie Links at Royal Aberdeen is probably the best course that most golfers will ever play. This incredible course, which is steeped in golf history, should be close to the very top of any golfers must-play list. There is a reason that Royal Aberdeen is not only Rated as the Number 1 Course in Scotland’s North East but also Top 10 in Scotland and just outside of the World Top 50.
The course is recognised for being one of the most genuine pure links golf experiences anywhere. Like most ancient links Royal Aberdeen is a traditional out and back course which follows the sublime North Sea Coastline shared with Murcar LInks. Local golfers believe that the best 18 holes in links golf is the front nine at Royal Aberdeen followed by holes 2-10 at neighbouring Murcar Links Golf Club
The World-Renowned Front Nine is truly exceptional. Your round starts right under the clubhouse window and the fairway takes you to the sea. The holes now run parallel to the shore, weaving their way through towering sand dunes. Many believe this to be the finest front nine holes in all of links golf. Play the course that keeps on giving and decide for yourself ?. Hole-after-hole the course just keeps on delivering world-class holes for golfers to enjoy, savour and remember for a lifetime.
As you make the turn for home and head towards the clubhouse. The back nine is played on much higher ground and you can expect to experience many stunning Vistas and the North Sea views. All 18 holes are a joy as the routing takes you on a thrilling journey of discovery through the massive dunes on the outward half.
The Royal Aberdeen Golf Club was founded in 1780 and claims to be the sixth oldest golf club in the world. It was founded as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen and became the Aberdeen Golf Club in 1815 subsequently receiving royal patronage in 1903. The members originally played over a public strip of common land between the Don and the Dee. In 1815 the society changed its name to the Aberdeen Golf Club. The common land was becoming over-crowded, so in 1886 they decided to move to their present home, the Balgownie links, north of the river Don, which opened for play in 1888. The royal title was finally applied in 1903, despite the fact that Prince Leopold granted patronage more than 30 years earlier.
A trio of Simpsons had a hand in fashioning this course, brothers Robert and Archie and then the flamboyant Tom Simpson. J. H. Taylor, James Braid and most recently Donald Steel also made revisions.
