Stuck for a place to eat and happened upon Braemar Golf Club. Restaurant average, food average, service ok. Meals were basic and more clubhouse atmosphere rather than comfortable restaurant.

The gold club may not be your usual thought for choosing where to eat and drink in the lovely old timey village of Braemar but it certainly is the best place to go. The staff are welcoming, the food is fantastic and the drinks are reasonably priced. I am yet to try the golf club's own whisky but thus far... More

Recommended by the b&b owner we had dinner here. It was a ten minute walk along the river from the town. Not busy but the food was nice. Staff friendly. Nice view over the course.

The views and surroundings are amazing, but the food and the service are excellent, for both lunches and evening meals, good choices and exceptionally good value for money. Definitely give it a try

I've played Braemar three times now, and it has become a firm favourite. The sign outside the clubhouse says it's the highest golf course in the UK, and it is also one of the most scenic, surrounded by mountains in a peaceful location with several streams and the River Clunie featuring prominently. Given where it is, the course is surprisingly... More

This is a delightful Golf Course and it challenges, even though on paper it seems quite short. It is essential that any player thinks and plots his way around the course rather than just trying to hit the ball as far as possible. The course is well prepared and the greens good but with some significant challenges. The manger is... More

Visited Braemar golf club today. We were staying at the delightful Braemar caravan park and armed with the £10 off vouchers took ourselves to the club on Monday morning. Although it was cold, windy and rain threatened we were welcomed warmly and at £16 per head for a round of 18 holes with the vouchers we were determined to make... More

The atmosphere of the "restaurant" is very spartan and loveless, and the food was pitiful. The waitress was lovely though, but I wouldn't go there again.

We recently played the course which was in great condition and then met as a larger group for evening dining in the clubhouse. We receieved a warm welcome on both occasions - the staff were genuinely engaging and the club had a really good busy vibe. The choice for dining was excellent with good quality locally sourced fare with the... More
