    Fun at Aboyne
    This was one of the nicest courses my wife and I played during our two weeks in Scotland. It was in terrific shape and is a fair test of ones abilities. The 19th hole is also very comfortable. Thanks for an enjoyable experience.

    Welcoming and recommended
    Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and 4ball to Aboyne. Heart breakfast in the clubhouse, very pleasant staff. Course was in great condition. Very good layout and became very interesting at the top of the course where it was more heathland than the parkland holes previous. It helped the weather was nice but looks to biting flies in the closing holes. Overall very good and would highly recommend the course for a day out. Thank you for all staff and Mike in the pro shop. See you all again next year.

    Great Course 👍
    We've been going to Aboyne the last 3 years with out golf weekend, we're already booked up for next year too. The course is always in fantastic condition, the greens are the best in the area, the course provides is tough challenge, the back 9 is a little tighter. The food in the clubhouse is top notch too. The staff in the shop are very welcoming.

    Perfect holiday golf course
    Hadn’t played Aboyne in 30 years, but won’t wait that long to return. A great little course, friendly staff and members. Paid £30 for a round which is exceptional value for a course in fabulous condition. Nice choice of beers and food in the clubhouse.

    Top Club
    Wow, what can I say. The club pro Mike was kind enough to give me the reciprocal rate as a result of my home course being closed. I was first out that morning and found the course to be immaculate, from the well raked bunkers, to the greens which were so smooth, particularly at this time of year. The course itself is a really true test with a broad variety of holes and very testing par 3’s in particular. All of the members and staff in the clubhouse were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I managed a scratch 79 off the whites and even managed to doink one off the clubhouse at the last. A top club and one I would highly recommend.
