Review for Royal Aberdeen (Balgownie)

Reviewer Score:


A true example of a real quality Golf Course. The view from the first tee is good but it doesn't reveal the true extent of what is to come. From the 2nd Tee and on to the 9th the course meanders it's way through some truly fabulous links terrain. The front 9 is regarded by most as one of the best you will play and this then makes you think that the back 9 will not be as good, They are right - it isn't! but it's still pretty damn good and would be highly praised if it were anywhere else. There are still some good holes with the par 3 17th and the par 4 18th the standout holes on the back 9.

The course itself was in fantastic condition and despite the ongoing dry spell the tees, fairways and greens were all superb (the benefits of an extensive irrigation system being in place).

The old Clubhouse provides the visitor with a pictorial insight into the rich history of the Golf Club and it's well worth finding the time to look through some of these.
