Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, Aberdeenshire
Royal Aberdeen is very much a traditional old Scottish links. Well bunkered with undulating fairways, it is an excellent balance of holes, strong par 4's, tricky par 3's and two classic par 5's, with the 8th protected by 10 bunkers. The ever changing wind, tight greens and a magnificent finish makes Balgownie a test for the very best. The course runs essentially out and back along the North Sea shore. The outward nine, arguably acknowledged as one of the finest in links golf anywhere in the world, cuts its way through some wonderful dune formation and the inland nine on the plateau. The Course was originally designed by the Simpson Brothers, Archie and Robert of Carnoustie and later re-bunkered and lengthened by James Braid. Donald Steel & Company is now engaged as the Club's architects to ensure the classic links keeps pace with the modern game.
