Banchory Golf Club
Less than 20 miles from Aberdeen, Banchory Golf Club has a long history of delivering a great parklands golf option to Scotland. Built in 1905 and originally designed by John Souter, Banchory has the antiquity and location to make it a popular outing both for locals, as well as those who have hooked up a Scotland golf package.
Set above the scenic River Dee, Banchory is a scenic par 69 layout that will challenge golfers of all levels. Because while not particularly long at just over 5,801 yards, strategically placed bunkers, mature trees and the waters of the River Dee provide obstacles that can test low handicappers as well as high.
Including a memorable clubhouse, as well as lessons from the club pro, Banchory Golf Club has stood up to the test of time for more than 100 years, and seems to get better every year.

Forgiving course in great condition, challenging par 3,s.Overall in great condition with very friendly stall, recommended.
First time at Banchory for me, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Considering time of year (late April) Course was in good condition, and very dry. Greens generally were very good, with consistent pace.
Round topped of with a cold shandy on the Clubhouse balcony, perfect end to a lovely day.
I will certainly return for another round.
Arrived early and was able to tee off straight away. First 5 or 6 holes were good but then caught up with end of ladies medal. From then on pace of play was ridiculously slow so much so that I walked off after the 16th. It was a shame really because it was a lovely day on a nice course. The course itself was in great condition easy walking and not too difficult. I would like to play it again.
Very tricky par 3,s .
Played in 20° and in perfect conditions.
Stayed in area overnight and was well worth the visit.
Poor, uncontrolled pace of play
I agree with all the positive reviews posted here, but our round was spoiled due to following behind a ladies completion 3 ball. After the first 3 holes, we ended up waiting for a long time one every tee and on every shot (as did the other 2 ball behind us). Hole 9 was reached in 2 hours!!! Eventually though, this continual slow pace of golf was just too unpleasant and so we walked off after the 12th hole, hence the negative comments.
On reaching the Pro Shop, we stoppped by to comment on the pace of play and they seemed to think it was acceptable to have a 4 hour round of golf on a relatively short course and it was our fault for purchasing the round though Teeofftimes. Sorry, but if a course is willing to accept such slow play in a competition, then they shouldn't sell the tee off times immediately following it, no matter where you buy it.
Nice day, course conditions were good, few boring holes but found the amount of people out for a stroll with their kids or dog as you are playing the course was a bit annoying, surely they could find a better place to walk. not the clubs fault but i wouldn't pay full price to play here
Course in superb condition
The course is of a length and layout that particularly suits the broad mid range of golfers. Very low handicappers may find it a little too forgiving but no less enjoyable.
The rest of us mere mortals find it a great round of golf on a course in fantastic condition.
We played as a 3 ball this morning. From the moment we arrived and had a chat with the Pro 'Dean' we knew we were in for a good day. The 4 ball in front were very friendly and played a fantastic pace and the 4 ball behind we rarely bumped into after the 2nd/3rd.
Very well kept short course which is not too challenging but very enjoyable to play.
Agusta of the north
The course was great and In stunning condition.
The par 3s are on different levels and challenging
But great.The bunkers are all well placed so don't forget your sand wedge
The scenery is gouges round the hole course the you could easily forget your there to hit a golf ball.
The round takes about Three and a half hours.
I will be back
Well worth a visit. Good condition, lovely greens. Brothers first round at Banchory and loved it, very impressed with course.
Great day out
Really enjoyed our round of golf at Banchory the course was looking good for so early in the season. Green were great.
Course in magnificent shape and very easy to walk. All levels of handicap will enjoy playing here.
Well kept course suits mid handicap
Course was in very good condition and is suitable for all ages / standards. Greens very true, many bunkers but not too tight fairways.
