Famed golf course designers Alister MacKenzie and James Braid are responsible for Duff House Royal Golf Course, a standout Scottish design set in Banff. Playing to more than 6,000 yards from the back tees, Duff House is a perfect example of the quality parklands courses available on a Scotland vacation package.

While not known for elevation changes, MacKenzie's original design sets golfers off on a magical ride of old-school golf, featuring multi-level greens, stately fir and mammoth pine trees, and a parade of challenging holes. The River Deveron comes into play on several holes, not just adding a challenge, but even giving guests views of wild seals catching their lunch.

Somewhat protected by the nearby hills, Duff House Royal tends not to be as windy as other notable Scotland golf courses, and with spectacular, unique views, as well as challenging play designed by the greats of the game, you'll see why Duff House Royal Golf Club has survived more than a century in style.

    Hi ,
    I played your course in mixed doubles last Sunday and was very impressed. The course was spectacular and the greens in perfect condition, then we have the rolls on bacon , service at bar, and the bit of banter from the starter staff all were fab and helped make our first visit to your club a memorable one . thanks
