|Balgownie Championship Links
Royal Aberdeen Golf club is the sixth oldest club in the world. 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 and company are now engaged as the course's architects to ensure the classic links keeps pace with the modern game.
The course runs essentially out and back along the North Sea shore. The outward nine, (which is arguably acknowledged and one of the finest links golf anywhere in the world) cuts its way through some wonderful dune formation and the inland nine on the plateau.
A traditional old Scottish links; it is well bunkered with undulating fairways. It is an excellent balance of holes, strong par 4's, tricky par 3's and 2 classic par 5's, with the 8th (our signature hole) protected by 10 bunkers. The ever changing wind, tight greens and a magnificent finish makes Balgownie a test for the very best.
