Aboyne is a wonderful mix of parkland and heathland with superb views. The greens are without doubt the best on deeside. Not overly long but a good test with many interesting and challenging holes.

Golf Course in excellent condition, greens beautiful. Well organised and a most enjoyable day. Definitely a must play course in the Deeside area, consists of two contrasting but challenging nines.

My perfect course. Not too long (though challenging in parts), v well kept, and in beautiful surrounds. Look out for the deals (we played for £25 each which represented great value).
