Royal Aberdeen

Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in Aberdeen, Scotland, was founded in 1780 as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen and became the Aberdeen Golf Club in 1815. Until 1888 members played on the Queen’s Links close to the city before moving across the River Don to the links at Balgownie. The Course was originally designed by the Simpson Brothers, Archie and Robert of Carnoustie and later re-bunkered and lengthened by James Braid to ensure our classic links kept pace with the modern game.

The club’s ‘Royal’ patronage was awarded by Edward VII in 1903.

We hope you enjoy your virtual visit to Royal Aberdeen Golf Club and look forward to welcoming you when your visit to our wonderful links becomes a reality.

“One of the best golf link I have ever played. The greens are extremely well-kept, the course is difficult but very enjoyable, and you can also admire a beautiful panorama along the entire course. Staff is professional and welcoming, very nice clubhouse and really well stocked pro shop.”
