Welcome to Inchmarlo Golf Club – a true golfing treasure in the heart of Royal Deeside set amidst the foothills of the Scottish Highlands. Here you will find a warm reception and a full range of golf experiences to inspire eager novices and challenge even battle-hardened professionals.
As a 4 star resort, Inchmarlo Golf Club not only offers two stunning golf courses (the HSBC Regional Course Rankings Silver Award winning Laird’s and the beautiful 9 hole Queen’s), a prestigious 30-bay driving range and fully-stocked pro shop, it also caters for discerning palates with a comfortable function suite, friendly bars and Gillies Restaurant providing some of finest hospitality in northeast Scotland. Just a 30-minute drive west of Aberdeen, Inchmarlo Golf Club is perfectly positioned in the enchanting Dee Valley and offers one of the finest golfing breaks in Scotland. Castles, hill forts and stone circles surround the golfing centre, while eagles and buzzards soar above creating a breath-taking backdrop and idyllic location to relax and play golf.
When the Laird’s course was voted Best New British Course by Golf Links magazine it was the culmination of many years’ hard work. Bill Robertson, the title’s editor, said it was “a true Highland treasure” and set to become “one of Scotland’s outstanding new inland courses”. The journey towards this accolade started nearly a decade earlier when Paul Lawrie opened the Inchmarlo Golf Club in 1994.
The Inchmarlo Estate site had been selected due to the area’s unspoilt countryside and stunning surroundings. The heather-topped mountains protected by a blanket of trees provided the ideal haven for wildlife and fauna, and the perfect setting for golf. The blissfully untainted landscape became the stage for a bold and testing 9 hole course designed by renowned golf course architect Graeme Webster.
Opened in 1997, the beguiling parkland course (known as the Queen’s Course) embodied Royal Deeside golf by utilising the dramatic views and natural waterways - all but two of the holes feature a water hazard.
Shortly after, preparatory work started on the Laird’s 18 hole Championship Course. This ambitious project, again masterminded by Graeme (pictured left), would use the spectacular twists and turns of the undulating countryside to create a golf course characterised by breath-taking tee vistas and inviting two-tier greens. “There was splendid movement in the ground and it became evident very quickly that this would be an exciting course,” says Graeme. Two years later, the course was opened by co-founder of Inchmarlo Golf Club Robert C Massie. Indeed within only five years of the Laird's Course coming into play, it had achieved a Silver Award in the HSBC Regional Course Rankings presented by the prestigious Golf Monthly magazine.
In September 2006, a new members’ club house has been developed as part of a continuous programme of improvements to create a warm and welcoming venue with modern facilities for both members and visitors alike.
