Aberdeen

On the banks of the Hunter River, tucked away in Upper Hunter Country is historical Aberdeen located between Muswellbrook and Scone on the New England Highway. Aberdeen is close to many attractions including the wineries of the Upper Hunter, Lake Glenbawn Recreation area and world class Thoroughbred Horse studs. The town boasts a range of historical sites from the early 1800's and offers visitors a chance to explore these sites in a town tour. For over 100 years, the Aberdeen Meat Works had been the largest beef and lamb shipping company in Australia for export until its closure in 1999. Across the railway line and on the edge of town are the ruins of the Butter Factory and Flour Mill. Aberdeen also boats one of the most famous pie shops on the New England Highway. For 21 years, Crofts pies have been traditionally made by the family. Every July, Aberdeen residents don their kilts and prepare for a celebration of Gaelic proportions for the Aberdeen Highland Games - a festival celebrating the Scottish heritage and traditions of the first founders of Aberdeen. The Games begins with a street parade that features 12 pipe bands, clan societies and various floats, moving from the main street into Jefferson Park for the opening of the Games. The Games include tournaments and competitions including jousting, tartan warriors, tug - o - war, haggis haul, egg throwing, kilted dash, three legged race, and highland dress competitions. The day concludes with a Ceilidh evening featuring Scottish cuisine, beverages and music.

Aberdeen Golf Club


Aberdeen Golf Course is a nine hole (18 tee) course set on the banks of the Hunter River in Aberdeen NSW.

The par 70 course provides a good challenge to all levels of golfer. Although some holes are quite short in distance, the challenge is provided by smaller than average greens which are long and narrow meaning supreme accuracy is required with approaches. The slicing golfer is slightly disadvantaged compared to straighter or hooking hitters as hazards or out-of-bounds fences line every fairway on the right hand side. A CCR of 66 is a reasonable assessment of the course but golfers new to the course do have trouble with the narrow greens on some holes especially the opening two holes.

No tee times are required. Just turn up on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday and be greeted by friendly Aberdeen members who are glad to show you around.
