Established in 1893, Abernethy Golf Club is a traditional Highland golf course, built on natural moorland, and surrounded by majestic pine trees. Renowned for its hospitality, ‘known as one of the friendliest of Highland courses’. We welcome visitors and groups of all standards. On most days, it is possible to walk on without a reserved tee time. Families are welcome and handicap certificates are not required. For those without clubs we have a few sets for hire.
The full programme of our Open competitions can be found at www.abernethygolfclub.com.
Casual visitors will cope perfectly well with the friendly course layout while low handicappers will need to bring their very best short game to score well. The challenging dogleg par 4 seventh followed by the long Par 3 driving over the iconic War Memorial will make or break your score card. The refurbished kitchen allows our welcoming steward, Bridget to offer a full range of light refreshments and snacks, her home baking is legendary with scones to die for. We have bar licence for the Opens and some other events. Free WiFi access is available to all of our customers.
Situated in the Cairngorms National Park, Abernethy golf course is home to many wildlife species. Red squirrels abound in the forest bordering the fairways and curlews nest between the seventh and eighth holes. Golfers may even glimpse an osprey flying over the course carrying a fish to feed its young at the famous Loch Garten nest - a rare birdie indeed.
