Situated at the foot of the majestic Grampian Mountains, 1,200 feet above sea level, Braemar Golf Club has the distinction of being the highest 18-hole golf course in Britain.  Split in two by the River Clunie, this par 65, 4,935-yard course is tough for its length as water plays a large part in 12 of the 18 holes.

The second hole is the signature hole.  At 369 yards it sounds short, but the fairway lies between heavy rough and the River Clunie. The second shot is to a large elevated green making the hole play much longer than it looks.

Despite its altitude the greens are of a high standard and the course is very popular with holidaymakers and golfing societies.
