Braemar New Course – The Braemar golf club have been fortunate in securing a larger golf course in close proximity to the village.

The old course was only one of six holes but the new one is full sized - 18 holes. The ground secured is the farm of Croftmuickan, which lies to the South of the village about eight minutes walk.

The situation is picturesque, the course being bounded on the East by the Clunie river, and on the West by Morrone Hill, and a good view of the surrounding high peaks is to be got from any part of the course. To the many visitors who seek health and rest in this quiet and salubrious spot the new course should prove a boon. The road to it is level and a beautiful walk.

Mr Weir, the Cruden Bay professional, laid out the course, and pronounced it to be a first class inland one. As part of the farm is under crop, only nine holes will be played this year, and they are expected to be ready for play towards the end of June. The club has secured the farm steading, which is to be converted into a clubhouse and the necessary rooms in connection with a golf course.
