Set in Royal Deeside and offering golfers an historic and scenic round of golf, Torphins Golf Club is just 22 miles from the city of Aberdeen. A nine-hole run that can easily be played as 18 with 13 different tee-settings, Torphins plays to nearly 5,000 yards from the tips for 18 holes with a par of 66.

Founded in 1896 as a direct result of a railway line that opened up this pristine area of Scotland to visitors, Torphins Golf Club has undergone a multitude of changes in its more than a century of existence. Like many Scotland golf courses, Torphins was forced to alter its course during war times to accommodate the extra farming needs of the nation, but has now added modern touches such as a new clubhouse.

Golfers looking for a challenge won't be disappointed by the nine holes and diverse tee placements at this delightful run. The No. 4 hole is a perfect example of what Torphins has to offer - a 243-yard downhill par 3 to a hidden green, you'll need both distance and accuracy to set yourself up with a birdie opportunity. Of course, before you tee off, you'll have to walk forward a bit to check to see if there are golfers still on the putting surface. The No. 4 hole is
one of the many challenges you'll face at Torphins, which is a popular stop for locals, as well as for golf travelers looking for hidden gems on their Scotland golf holiday.

Winter greens

Unfortunately the course was still on winter green and tees so it was far less enjoyable to play than usual.

Short, hilly course. Good challenge.

A short course, the hilly Torphins offers an aerobic workout along with your round. Mostly straight fairways, some holes offer great views of the surrounding countryside. Well worth a visit.

Quiet and relaxing

Lovely little course based around a hill. Lots of elevation as more holes are either up or down.

Greens and fairways very well kept.

Cheap round too so great value for money.
