Set on the banks of the River Dee, Banchory Golf Club is a picturesque 18-hole course which offers a challenge to golfers of all standards.  Though not over long at 5,800 yards – don’t be fooled.  Strategically placed bunkers, mature native trees and the “magnetic” Dee provide obstacles to test even the most accomplished player.

Six Open Champions have played the course – Harry Vardon, George Duncan, Arthur Havers, Alf Padgham, Max Faulkner and most recently Paul Lawrie, who was an assistant professional at Banchory from 1986 – 1990. All of them found some of the holes to be a real challenge.

From one of the shortest holes in Scottish golf, the 88-yard Doo’cot, to some of the most testing long holes, Banchory has something for everyone.
