Aberdeen & Scottish Highlands

Once one of Scotland’s best kept secrets for golf, Aberdeen and the Highlands region is now a bucket-list destination for many golf enthusiasts. The region has steadily grown more popular in recent years thanks to feature stories written about historic golf clubs like Royal Aberdeen and Royal Dornoch—the former was founded in 1780 and is the sixth oldest golf club in the world, while the latter is home to a par-4 that Harry Vardon considered “the most natural hole in golf.” In fact, after his round at Royal Dornoch, Tom Watson declared it to be “the most fun I’ve ever had on a golf course.”

You can contrast those longstanding holes against younger ones built more recently in the south after your opening round at Castle Stuart Golf Club, a course designed by Mark Parsinen and Gil Hanse that is set along the shores of the Moray Firth and previously hosted the Scottish Open.

Only 9 miles to the east of Castle Stuart, Nairn Golf Club boasts a history as captivating as the aforementioned royal courses. Stretching to 6,774 yards, Nairn’s championship course, which bears the fingerprints of two of Scotland’s legends—Old Tom Morris and James Braid—most recently hosted the Walker Cup in 1999. But if recent developments are most alluring, a visitor to Aberdeen & the Highlands must play a round at Trump International Golf Links, which boasts a layout created by Dr. Martin Hawtree, a course architect who each year is tasked by the R&A to subtly modify the course that is to host the next Open Championship.

Despite the above-mentioned half dozen golf clubs of superlative standing and quality, a Highlands and Aberdeen golf journey wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Cruden Bay Golf Club. Set along the shores of the North Sea, the course is quirky, playing over undulating terrain and offering views of the medieval castle ruins that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
