Golf Course/
Royal Aberdeen

Just north of Aberdeen, Royal Aberdeen-Balgownie is the sixth oldest course in the world. Majestic dunes, tradition rugged Scottish terrain and views of the North Sea were the backdrop to Tom Watson’s Senior British Open win at the club.

The tight fairways and rolling greens make Balgownie a truly enjoyable test of golf. The eighth hole is the signature hole for the demanding course. The daunting par-3 has a green surrounded by nine bunkers to create a truly intimidating task, with the only solution being straight up the middle. 

Balgownie links course was designed by Simpson/Braid. The course runs essentially out and back along the North Sea Shore, the outward nine through some wonderful dune formation, the inland nine of the plateau.

Today's spectacular layout that winds its way between the great sand hills with many elevated tees and panoramic views is once again largely from the imagination and genius of James Braid.

Royal Aberdeen has several claims to fame not the least of them that it was here, in 1783, that the rule that allows only five minutes to look for a lost golf ball was established.
