Review for Aboyne

Reviewer Score:


Initial thoughts standing on the first tee at Aboyne weren’t great, the reason for that is long par 3’s are my least favourite golfing hole. The 2nd hole was a better but, sad to say, Aboyne Golf Course - Photo by reviewerI found the outward 9 a tad on the bland side, although the 5th is a good hole and the 9th, driving over the water, interesting. If the front 9 is underwhelming the back nine is delightful with brains rather than brawn required. Challenging par 3’s, difficult dog-legs a plenty, the best being the wonderful 13th, with the 16th just behind. The 18th is a mirror image of the first, taking you back to the clubhouse. The course, is in excellent condition and although the front nine didn’t get my pulse racing the inward half is very good, and enough to make you consider a return visit, if you are in the area.
