Duff House Royal Golf Club
Duff House Royal Golf Club, Banff, AB45 3SX
Duff House Royal is a challenging par 68 for Gents or a par 72 for Ladies. It is bounded by the River Deveron, which proves to be a hazard at a number of holes. Duff House Royal has achieved an excellent reputation for providing an outstanding course with large MacKenzie two-tiered and double greens.
It was redesigned in 1923, by the legendary Dr Alister MacKenzie, who also designed the world famous Augusta National, Home of The Masters. Duff House Royal still, till this day, retains the design set out by MacKenzie.
Although close to the sea, the course is a flat, beautifully manicured parkland course with little rough, many well positioned bunkers and trees, which make the course a severe but fair challenge to golfers of all abilities.
Nestling in the middle of the course is Duff House, considered one of the grandest classical country houses built in the 18th century and designed by William Adam.
