About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Style Parkland
Par 69
Length 5864 yards
Slope 126
Rating 68.3

Less than 20 miles from Aberdeen, Banchory Golf Club has a long history of delivering a great parklands golf option to Scotland. Built in 1905 and originally designed by John Souter, Banchory has the antiquity and location to make it a popular outing both for locals, as well as those who have hooked up a Scotland golf package.

Set above the scenic River Dee, Banchory is a scenic par 69 layout that will challenge golfers of all levels. Because while not particularly long at just over 5,801 yards, strategically placed bunkers, mature trees and the waters of the River Dee provide obstacles that can test low handicappers as well as high.

Including a memorable clubhouse, as well as lessons from the club pro, Banchory Golf Club has stood up to the test of time for more than 100 years, and seems to get better every year.

First Time Playing

Great course in great condition

First time playing this course, but was very impressed with the course layout and the condition of the course and the greens.

The pace of play was unfortunately very slow, but still enjoyed it.

A little disappointed that they were not serving any food in the clubhouse (apparently there is no food on a Sunday, which seemed like a missed opportunity) as we were planning to eat there as well, but we just found somewhere in town instead.

Well worth a visit.

Our third visit and although there were several GUR areas on a few holes the course was in good condition. A number of really challenging holes 2nd par 3 measures 217 yards off yellows when we played! Friendly welcome and played a a reasonable pace despite there being a medal taking place. Sadly the club didn’t have any catering staff so coffee from clubhouse only.

great course to play.

Great course to play even though we played in mid-November, the course was in great condition. Greens were very, very slow but other than that I couldn't fault the course. Staff were great and the other players were of a good quality, so we were not held up at all. Would definitely recommend playing this course.

First class course

We love this course, very easy to negotiate as on the main it’s pretty flat. This time we were stuck behind a slow four so came off after three hours at the 15th but could not fault the course, it was first class
