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.

Parkville: Events

Scone Literary Long Weekend


The Scone Literary Long Weekend aims to promote books and to nurture a love of literature, learning and writing.

What is the future of publishing? Will the printed word become obsolete? Will paper books become dusty items relegated to antique shops? Or will digital and paper books continue to co-exist?

They have taken 'Maintain the Page' as our motto here in Scone where they'll be reining in a superb collection of authors to discuss their latest books. Come up to Scone and immerse yourself in 'the word' - whether it be acoustic, printed or digitally enhanced.
