Stunning setting, terrific course
Aboyne is an excellent challenge suitable for all levels.
The setting is stunning and the course is very well manicured.
The front nine have generous fairways classic parkland, then the back nine give you a stem test of heathland golf which will punish poor course management..
Definately recommends and look forward to returning in the near future.
The sun was shining in Aboyne
staff were very welcoming, course was in great shape and challenging. Will definitely play there again soon.
A wonderful scenic golf course. The par 5 10th hole being the highlight, with the lake running alongside. Greens were in perfect condition and it was a good mix of holes. The long par 3’s were particularly challenging! Would love to play here again.
Friendly staff, beautiful clubhouse with outside seating areas overlooking course. No caterer as yet- hopefully soon
Aboyne is a lovely , well presented course with great value for money . Testing at times but an enjoyable test in spectacular scenery.
Lovely course with plenty of challenges for all golfers regardless of handicap.
If you are in Deeside with your clubs don't miss this one out or you will regret it.
Interesting mixed style course
Played late October so no problem with pace of play. Though had been Some rain beforehand not much mud. Rain had slowed greens but they were still in excellent condition. As mentioned course is varied with differing challenges. All staff were welcoming and clubhouse offers excellent facilities. Beautiful location.
Thank you for your kind comments Andy.
Delighted you enjoyed your visit to the oldest club on Royal Deeside.

Well maintained golf course with a good variety of holes

Fantastic Day Out
Myself and 15 others held a charity golf outing at Aboyne and were not disappointed. The course was in fantastic condition from tee box to greens. The opening 9 holes are somewhat different to the back 9, with both offering a test to all who participated. The staff were welcoming, friendly and we would highly recommend the course to both individuals and group bookings. Thanks again for the hospitality and we will be back.
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.
Very nice and some excellent holes
Very nice and picturesque course in royal deeside. Some lovely holes and good variety.
Would thoroughly recommend!
Friendly staff welcomed us, we had played here previously and loved the course and the surrounding beauty. Tough course but playable and well worth it, would thoroughly recommend it to all.
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.
