When two internationally-recognised golf course architects are commissioned to design a new course, you know that the result is going to be something special – and ‘special’ is surely what Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie achieved in their design for Ballindalloch Castle Golf Course.
Set among 150-year-old trees on the banks of the River Avon, this championship-standard eighteen-tee course affords spectacular views of the surrounding heather-clad hills and native birch woods, and so combines aesthetic appeal with an interesting challenge for golfers of all standards. It is now considered to be one of the finest nine-hole courses in Scotland.

Ballindalloch Golf Course is the perfect place to find escape from an imperfect world. By the imaginative use of alternative tees, it has achieved the illusion of making nine holes into 18. Purists who scoff at the idea would be missing a treat if they passed it by. For natural beauty and golf played to the tune of the wind and river it is worth seeking out. Such days should never end.
