Royal Aberdeen Golf Glub is situated just north of the city boundary and was originally designed by the Simpson Bros from Carnoustie but was then later re-bunkered and lengthened by one of Scotland's most famous course architects,James Braid.
The main championship course at Royal Aberdeen is the Balgownie course with the Silverburn as its second course, both excellent links golf courses.
The course became a Royal course in 1903, awarded by the then King Edward VII.
The first tee at Royal Aberdeen stands immediately in front of the clubhouse windows and you're faced with a wide open fairway and an exciting way to start a round of golf on one of the great Links courses of Scotland.
The Balgownie course is known for its smaller greens and played amongst some very large undulating dunes and this is an excellent way to finish or start your North East swing.
