Ballater Golf Club was founded in 1892

Originally as a nine hole course, on land owned by the laird of Invercauld. When farmland became available in 1905, the course was expanded to eighteen holes.

A match was staged in August 1906, between two very well known golfers, James Braid and Harry Vardon, to celebrate the construction of a pavilion and the extension of the course.

This eighteen hole, medium length golf course is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Upper Deeside.

Several holes lie close to the River Dee and the course lies within a circle of heather clad hills with glorious views, a delightful golfing experience.

The course can best be described as heathland, although farther away from the river there are some distinct parkland characteristics.

There are also a good number of undulations formed by river terraces running along the ancient flood plain and these help make it interesting to play.

Ballater offers its toughest test to par on its opening six holes, which include two difficult par threes. However, with the beautiful scenery, dominated by Lochnagar to the west, and the fresh Highland air, few can fail to enjoy this lovely course.
