Review for Royal Aberdeen (Balgownie)

Reviewer Score:


All the previous comments hold true, a fearsome front nine through mountainous dunes, followed by the back nine running back to the clubhouse on top of a plateau. The front nine played into the wind when we played (I understand the back nine is usually into), any less than perfectly struck shots found either the dunes or bunkers. In normal wind conditions, ie. back nine into, this would make the course alot more playable and balanced. Overall an excellent and tough test of golf. Loved the Clubhouse and all of its history, and the view down the 1st hole tumbling down to the north sea. The staff and Members were extremely friendly and helpful, contrary we found to some previous comments.
