Travellers visit Aberdeen for many reasons including historic architecture, excellent local museums, superb shopping and freshly sourced local cuisine. This Scottish metropolis offers much in the way of urban buzz but perhaps Aberdeen’s greatest attribute is its proximity to some of the most spectacular and remote landscapes in the UK.

When you stumble across a beautiful expanse of land in Scotland, odds are you’re not too far away from a golf course. Aberdeenshire is no different, with over 50 golf courses, both old and new, located in the area. Those looking for stay and play holidays will find no shortage of options, while those keen to stay in the city are within easy reach of a number of world class courses.
Royal Aberdeen golf course on the edge of the city is the sixth oldest golf club in the world. It is widely agreed that the front nine of its Balgownie course is among the finest stretches of links golf in the world. A challenging test for any standard of golfer.
For something a little less formidable, yet still a test of your abilities, golfers should book a tee time at one of Aberdeen’s first class municipal courses. Balnagask offers great golf and pretty views of the harbour and coastline.
