Unfortunately golf is getting very expensive.a lovely little course but with no one playing.They need to get the pricing structure sorted.In the food stakes things have taken another backward step.The catering is mediocre to say the least when it used to be a great place to eat.Oh dear let's hope yet another caterer has taken over next year.Such a shame.

In their Words…….

Ballater Golf Club was founded in 1892, originally as a nine hole course, on land owned by the laird of Invercauld. When farmland became available in 1905, the course was expanded to eighteen holes. A match was staged in August 1906, between two very well known golfers, James Braid and Harry Vardon, to celebrate the construction of a pavilion and the extension of the course.

This eighteen hole, medium length golf course is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Upper Deeside. Several holes lie close to the River Dee and many a ball has gone to a watery grave. Ballater and its golf course lie within a circle of hills with glorious views, a delightful golfing experience. Ballater offers its toughest test to par on its opening six holes, which include two difficult par threes. However, with the beautiful scenery, dominated by Lochnagar to the west, and the fresh Highland air, few can fail to enjoy this lovely course.

Our aim at Ballater Golf Club is to ensure that as many people as possible, Members and Guests alike, derive as much pleasure as possible from the game of golf and associated activities
