Set in Royal Deeside and offering golfers an historic and scenic round of golf, Torphins Golf Club is just 22 miles from the city of Aberdeen. A nine-hole run that can easily be played as 18 with 13 different tee-settings, Torphins plays to nearly 5,000 yards from the tips for 18 holes with a par of 66.

Founded in 1896 as a direct result of a railway line that opened up this pristine area of Scotland to visitors, Torphins Golf Club has undergone a multitude of changes in its more than a century of existence. Like many Scotland golf courses, Torphins was forced to alter its course during war times to accommodate the extra farming needs of the nation, but has now added modern touches such as a new clubhouse.

Golfers looking for a challenge won't be disappointed by the nine holes and diverse tee placements at this delightful run. The No. 4 hole is a perfect example of what Torphins has to offer - a 243-yard downhill par 3 to a hidden green, you'll need both distance and accuracy to set yourself up with a birdie opportunity. Of course, before you tee off, you'll have to walk forward a bit to check to see if there are golfers still on the putting surface. The No. 4 hole is
one of the many challenges you'll face at Torphins, which is a popular stop for locals, as well as for golf travelers looking for hidden gems on their Scotland golf holiday.

    A great wee course full of hidden traps. Will have to be reasonably mobile to get round. The signature hole must be the 6th as it is two blind shots before you get to the green. Catering facilities were excellent for 8 years!! All members very friendly and the Secretary is a very approachable man. Green fees are very good and if you are in the area well worth a visit there is usually no problem on getting on the course but check for competition days.
