Dalmunzie golf course was for the personal use of Sir Archibald Birkmyre and his family.
In 2014 an enquiry by Neil Crafter of the Mackenzie Society led to the discovery of a commercial brochure issued by Simpson Arana, golf architects based in Spain in 1946. Among the list of courses credited to renowned architect Tom Simpson is a private course for Sir Archibald Birkmyre. Birkmyre bought Dalmunzie Estate after the 1914-18 war and commissioned the golf course making it apparent that Simpson is the one and only architect of the Dalmunzie golf course.
Dalmunzie Golf Club was formed in 1946 and has almost 100 members from all over the world. If you are a regular guest or know Dalmunzie well maybe membership is for you. To enquire about membership please contact David Woodcock on 01250 885226 or email firstname.lastname@example.org The Club has 3 weekend meetings and prize-giving dinners per year – the Captain’s medal in May, an Open golf competition in July or August and the Club Championship in October.
The Golf Course is now open to all including our cottage residents, hotel guests, local golfers and visitors.
Green fees are payable at Dalmunzie Hotel where club hire and the purchase of a limited amount of accessories is also available.
Wonderful sunny Autumn weather to help us enjoy this marvellous landscape. Arriving just after the warm summer finished we've been very grateful for the easy-to-use fire, and generous supplies of wood, coal and newspaper. Linn of Dee was a great day out in the sunshine. The Pottery does a very good slice of fruit cake, which they are willing to sell as takeaway. Great soup to eat in too! We will remember this characterful cottage and its unbroken views.Joy and David.
