Insch Golf brings a colorful past, incredible scenery and challenging play to the booming Scotland golf scene. Originally built before World War I, the golf course was used as a grenade range and golf disappeared from the quaint town of Insch until its triumphant return in 1982.

In 1997, Insch was transformed into an 18-hole run, and a new, modern clubhouse has helped make it one of the hidden gems in Aberdeenshire. Playing to more than 5,000 yards from the back tees with a par of 69, Insch is a parkland course where accuracy and course management are a must for players looking to mark down low scores.

Set between the peaks of Bennachie and Dunnideer, in the picturesque village of Insch - just a 40-minute drive from Aberdden - Insch Golf Club is conveniently located near such golf powerhouses as St. Andrews, Cruden Bay and Royal Dornoch.

This is the 2nd time I played this course and it was as good as I remembered. Very nice layout but I don't like the way the net on the second hole interferes with your drive, think it could be placed a little more to the left, but thats a minor grumble as I'm a left to right player. Each hole is different and quirky with no straight up and down the fairway holes. Staff in the clubhouse are very friendly and the facilities great. If I lived in three area I would definitely take out a membership.

Don't be fooled by the length of this course. It proves to be a tricky challenge where accuracy off the tee is rewarded. Greens are undulating and never straightforward. The setting is stunning especially around 10th and 11th holes. Course is kept in very good condition. Best course in inland North East in my opinion after Kemnay.

Friendly and welcoming clubhouse.
