Rise of Ladies Golf at Kippie Lodge

A new-found interest for golf has seen a surge in participation and membership among female players at a blossoming north-east country club.

Kippie Lodge set within the bounds of Aberdeen yet surrounded by the picturesque scenery of the Dee valley, has been the perfect sport & leisure retreat since the early 1970s.

Once dominated by male businessman in the oil trade – the club is affiliated to Scottish Golf as Aberdeen Petroleum – it is now seeing an upsurge in ladies keen to take up the game and gain handicaps.

The picturesque 9-hole golf course in the grounds opened in the early 1990s and provides a challenge for all levels of player, with a family-friendly ethos.

Director of Golf Keil Beveridge has been working at the venue with groups of ladies through Scottish Golf’s Get into Golf coaching programme, while Laura Murray, who recently won her first pro event, continues the female theme through her attachment to Kippie Lodge.
