More courses than you can shake an eight iron at

In Aberdeen City & Shire you can play a links course one day, a heathland course the next, with a parkland course for the third day. And forty of them are within forty minutes' drive of any of our three Skene House properties. (Our hotel staff can help you plan and book everything including transport.)

Our HotelSuites come with 1, 2 & 3 bedrooms, in all shapes and sizes, just like golf parties. And you get a separate living room and fully equipped kitchen into the bargain. So plenty of space to practise those long putts.

We've provided some detail on three of our favourite courses, which are those that we have partnered with over the years to put together a one-, two- or three-day golfing holiday itinerary. We can arrange everything from tee-off times to transportation.

If you're travelling from a great distance, or if the need for a round or two during a business trip suddenly grabs you, we can even arrange golf club rental.

Please get in touch to find out how Skene House can help you design the perfect golfing short break or holiday.

Frequently listed in the Top 100 courses in the UK and VisitScotland's Top 40 Great Scottish Links Collection, Murcar is just a "pitch and putt" away from Skene House. With 6,516 yards and par 71, Murcar has something of a challenging reputation, so be on your mettle when swinging your irons.


Newmachar Golf Club lies just north of the city with two 18-holes par 72 courses. There's also a spacious driving range and short game practice area. Of the two courses Hawkshill is considered a real tough cookie while Swailend is less demanding. Play them both and decide for yourself.


Par 71 and 6,226 yards long, Peterculter is a real beauty. Sited on the banks of the River Dee and set against the backdrop of the magnificent Grampian hills, the course undulates along the natural contours of the riverbank. For seasoned golfers and high handicappers alike, the lush fairways and smooth greens set in fantastic scenery makes Peterculter a must-play for every golfer
