Royal Aberdeen ( Balgownie LINks)
Royal Aberdeen Golf Club was founded in 1780 as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen and became the Aberdeen Golf Club in 1815. In 1888 the club moved across the River Don to the links at Balgownie.
The Course was originally designed by the Simpson Brothers, Archie and Robert of Carnoustie and later re-bunkered and lengthened by James Braid.
The opening three holes provide a rousing start before settling in to a string of solid golf holes with the bunkering on the 8th hole particularly memorable.
