Good day out

I played this course while on holiday and had a good day out. From meeting Kimberley in the shop when I arrived until I left all the staff and were friendly. The course was in good condition considering the hot summer we have had and the greens were in great condition.

Great days golf

Course was in very good condition greens playing well

Little rain at the start of the round but not enough to worry about, some tricky holes in the back 9. Competition on ahead of us to pace of play was not an issue, second time playing the course , enjoyed very much.

Would quite happily return

Probably helped by the fact that I played well but I loved this course, varied range of holes with varied lengths, some wicked dog-legs and some narrows tee-shots but even as an intermediate I still played to my handicap with a couple of big numbers on the card.

Course was in great condition and the best greens I've played on this year to date. I travelled an hour to play here and would happily return, may even play in their open.

The course was closed until 09:30am due to frost and I teed off at 09:53am but you wouldn't have known that it had been closed for that reason. Was Easter Monday and I expected the course to be busy, it was more steady but pace of play was good and members even apologized for slow play even though they weren't holding me up.

Great course and amazing scenery, three and a bit hours of peace and quiet, can't beat it.

We'll be back!

Have played many courses and Aboyne rates as one of the very best in our opinion. We had visited recently, didn't play the course but were very impressed by the look of it so decided to return and play. We were not disappointed! The course was in excellent condition, the holes were both challenging and very interesting - have never before played holes which were almost horse shoe shaped! The bar steward was exceedingly helpful and friendly and the catering staff provided a good service. Looking forward to playing it again in the near future.
