In their Words…….
Kintore Golf Club, situated in the Royal Burgh of Kintore, was formed in 1911. In the early 1990s the course was extended to 18 holes and as a result now covers a large area of ground from the Don basin. Overlooked by the clubhouse, to mature woodland at the far perimeter, giving an interesting contrast between the ‘old and new nines’. Excellent drainage results in very few days of lost play throughout the year.
Although not as long as some – measuring 6126 yards from the medal tees – the course means the golfer cannot afford to be overconfident. The course is a mixture of hilly parkland, and holes lined by trees and criss-crossed by burns, producing some very interesting and tricky holes.The original 9 hole course remained largely unchanged other than minor alterations to tees and greens until 1991.
The new holes contrast with, and complement, the original layout, being constructed on the northern side of the hill on the site of a former croft.The golfer will enjoy spectacular views over the River Don, stretching away to Bennachie and the Grampian range of hills to the north and south.
Since the opening of the 18 holes there has been a continuous programme of improvement with new greens, tees and bunkers being constructed. Although not as long as some – measuring 6126 yards from the medal tees – the course means the golfer cannot afford to be overconfident.
The clubhouse offers a full licenced bar overlooking the 1st hole and a spacious dining room with veranda to take advantage of the sunny days. Catering services are provided all day.Kintore Golf Club
