Excellent historic golf club dating to the 1800's. Friendly and welcoming service. The golf course itself is a classic links course that is the 6th oldest golf club in the world. The Scottish Open was held here in 2014 which was won by Justin Rose...More

Great layout, especially the front nine. Some of the biggest dunes around. Bring your A game and some patience.

Played Royal Aberdeen just before they close for the winter. Had the course to myself ... just me, my caddie, and my wife, who walked along but didn't play ... and had a great time! The fairways are narrow, but the course is certainly fair....More

We played this course for the second time this past week. The temperature was about 45F and the winds were in the 20's but we still enjoyed the course. We walked and enjoyed the sound of the ocean and the natural beauty. This course has...More

It has been 4 months since my last visit to Scotland. Kingsbarns, Carnoustie, etc.;and it is Aberdeen that lingers in my memory. Nothing in Fife compares. Car-"nasty" is almost tame compared to the outward nine here. Some say the club is unwelcoming, but it is...More
