Golf as it is known and played around the world today first took shape on the low-lying links of Scotland's cast coast. The sport officially had its beginnings in Aberdeen in 1780 and the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club was founded in 1815, making it the sixth oldest club in the world.
Set on the windswept moors, Balgownie Links were laid out in 1887 by the famous golfer, Robert Simpson, using £100 raised by members of the club. The course offers a mixture of hoary grass and sand and was described by the most prolific golf writer of all, Bernard Darwin, as "much more than a good golf course, a noble links". The par 4 eighteenth hole covers 434 yards.
