Aboyne Golf Club started life as a nine-hole course on the village green as early as 1881. The current stretch of 6,0 03 yards was modernised and reconstructed some 100 years later and the present 18 holes was opened in August 1991.  The course provides a fine test for golfers of all abilities. It presents a rich variety of memorable holes making the most of the natural variations in the terrain which is a mix of rolling parkland with inviting fairways and elevated links-like heathland with tighter targets.  Mature trees and water are in play on many holes.  Aboyne Loch is a notable feature lending character and scenic beauty to the course as well as providing a hazard to be avoided on the last hole of the relatively flat outward parkland nine. Thereafter, the course changes character to heathland terrain and climbs gently providing magnificent views of some lovely Aberdeenshire countryside.  Another small loch lurks at the 15th and the closing holes test the skill of the most seasoned campaigner.  The home hole is a long par 3 and provides a worthy finish to a challenging round of golf.  Wildlife abounds with stoat, weasel, pheasant, coot and buzzard regularly seen and you may just see an osprey fishing in the loch to the right of the 9th hole.
