Has to be up there as one of the most stunning golf courses in the UK. Golf Course is a good test of golf for all handicaps male and female, the professional was very helpful and the club house, all i can say it was warm and friendly. I believe that the person behind the bar was the clubs steward... More

Ballater is my favourite place in the world and the golf course and views magnificent. However, the dining experience was incredibly disappointing. The advance reservation was noted under the wrong time, the promised table not given and the food very poor. Staff bustling around preparing tables for the next day's service. As paying guests we should not have to ask... More

Had my first game of golf here for many years and thoroughly enjoyed it. Course is very well looked after and can't be faulted. My wife met me afterwards for breakfast in the clubhouse which is where the problem lies. We were quite directly told 'coffees out the machine' before being served food. Food was ok. However a young family... More

Ate here twice on our recent camping trip to Ballater. The food is lovely and excellent value for money. Staff were really helpful and accommodating when it came to our children's choices, preparing very generous 'half' portions of dishes they fancied on the adult menu. Would thoroughly recommend eating here.

Seated at a table with views over a sunlit course with mountains in the ground. The menu had 3/4 options for starter main and pudding - the only problem being making... More

We ate here twice during our stay, & had several coffees before & after our rounds. Whether crowded or quiet, the service was always prompt.The food menu was traditional golf club fayre, with a special each day. Our meals were always well prepared & piping hot with really nice meat or fish. The ladies serving in the restaurant were very... More
