Alford Golf Club
Our welcoming clubhouse lies at the heart of the village and the golf course is cradled in the beautiful Howe of Alford. Easy-walking, level terrain takes the golfer through scenic, wooded and parkland surroundings with magnificent views of the neighbouring hills.
Most notably, the famous Bennachie Range provides a spectacular backdrop on many holes. "A further unique attraction is the Alford Valley Railway which winds its way alongside several holes on the back nine of the course. Golfers and youthful passengers enjoy exchanging a friendly wave."
The course measures 5483 yards from the white markers, 5035 yards from the yellow markers and 5022 yards from the red (Ladies) markers. Although relatively short, Alford is a great test of golf requiring accuracy and concentration.
Greenkeeper Mark Spence and his team have the course in superb condition and the greens are highly regarded by members and visitors alike. The trees and burns are attractive features although these are perhaps not always fully appreciated by the golfer who has hit a wayward shot!
