About Royal Aberdeen Golf Club

In the league table of golf course antiquity, the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club stands at number six and by rights should be known to a much wider audience around the world than it already is. Here, at the Balgownie links only a mile from the centre of the city of Aberdeen, is history indeed, a club founded as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen in 1780 and one of the most testing and spectacular of all the great links course of Scotland. The present Club incorporated the Society on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 and brought with it the old ballot box bearing the 1780 date and the president's chair dated three years earlier. Today's spectacular layout that winds its way between the great sand hills with many elevated tees and panoramic views is once again largely from the imagination and genius of James Braid. Royal Aberdeen has several claims to fame not the least of them that it was here, in 1783, that the rule that allows only five minutes to look for a lost golf ball was established.

Der Private Golfclub wurde ursprünglich 1780 gegründet und gehört zu den ältesten der Welt! Der aktuelle Platz wurde dann von James Braid 1886 entworfen. Die traditionelle Links Kurs Anlage, die sich zwischen den grossen Sanddünen durchschlängelt verfügt über zwei Kurse. Insgesamt ein Inbegriff eines authentischen Links-Golf-Erlebnisses mit dem bekannten Layout 9 Loch rau…

El club fue fundado en 1780, y se convirtió en campo de golf en 1815. Hasta 1888, los socios jugaban en el Link de Queens, cerca de la ciudad de Aberdeen, hasta que se movieron más cerca del Río Don, en Balgownie. El campo fue retocado por James Braid, aunque en su origen fue diseñado por Los hermanos Simpson. La casa club es espectacular y tiene mucha historia. Mientra…

Prachtig onderhouden links baan. Eerste paar holes speelden we tegen de wind in en waren pittig. 2e negen is wat makkelijker. De 2e hole is een schitterende par 5 en de 18e een uitdagende par 4. Het clubhuis is echt origineel en er is een mooie oefengreen om te chippen en bunkeren.
