Clubhouse Refurbishment - March 2020

After tremendous fundraising efforts and financial support from the membership, Council are delighted to announce that the planned phase one refurbishment of the upstairs bar and catering area will be going ahead in March 2020.  When additional funds become available, phase two may see the ceiling being renovated but this will not take place during the 2020 golfing season. To view the plans proposed by our retained architects 'Tinto' please click on the attached image. 

Just to clarify, the diagrams attached are 'version 2' and do not reflect the further amendments recently made following feedback from the membership. We are awaiting on an updated version and once received will upload. 

In essence, the high seating shown throughout the bar will instead be low level seating in the central area.  High-level seating will only feature around the poles at the windows.  This area is ‘dead space’ that cannot fit low level tables and chairs in to.  Instead, by providing 8 bar stools in this area, we can utilise the space and give members and their guests the option of seating preference.  There will be 64 low level seats for members to choose from, if they do not wish to use a stool.

If you have not made a donation to the refurbishment then we would ask for your support ti help us complete the full project.  Donations can be made either directly into the Donations box at the bar (cash or cheques payable to Aboyne Golf Club) or by making a transfer in to the Club Account:Bank: Clydesdale Bank A/c Name: Aboyne GC Ent Ac Sort Code: 826017 Account: 10011012

Club House

The clubhouse, completed in the early 1980’s, has stunning panoramic views

Aboyne Castle and it’s extensive grounds lie to the West of the course, whilst to the East lies the picturesque Aboyne Loch where an Osprey is often seen circling for fish.  The clubhouse balconies offer fabulous al fresco dining.     

On the ground floor there are locker rooms with changing and showering facilities and a well stocked Professional’s Shop. The clubhouse offers full bar and catering facilities and is available for private hire. We would be pleased to provide a bespoke quotation.
