Royal Aberdeen Golf Club

Founded in 1780 as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen then became Aberdeen Golf Club in 1815

Royal Aberdeen Golf Club

The Balgownie links of the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club lie on the edge of the town, running alongside endless yellow sand and the sea. Golf has been well-documented on Balgownie since the 18th century, and the place still remains in the top rank of the world's greatest golfing venues. This venerable course's setting, amidst some of the most spectacular dunes in Scotland, makes for some of the most memorable holes in golf. All of Balgownie's holes are special, but some on the front nine transcend superlatives.
