Aboyne is set in the heart of beautiful Aberdeenshire and offers some lovely views of the nearby mountains. The course is very much 'a game of two halves' - to coin a cliche. The front nine has very little of note, although the 6th is a nice hole. The course completely changes character on the back 9 with the Loch of Aboyne a visual feature and some fine holes notably the 11th and the par 3 12th. There is a strange loop of newer holes towards the end. Overall, worth playing if you're in the area.
