Ballater was founded in 1892 and was originally a nine-hole course. A match was staged in 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 18-hole, slightly undulating, 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 many a ball has gone to a watery grave. Ballater and its golf course lie within a circle of hills with glorious views, a delightful golfing experience.
Heathland, 18 holes, 6112 yards, SSS 69, Par 70
