The transformation of the Whitehorse Hotel, Balmedie in the heart of Aberdeen’s golf strip and just minutes from Trump International Scotland will at last provide some, the perfect base for a golfing visit to Aberdeen.
Trump international Golf Links, Aberdeen
For years golfers have been drawn to stay in Scotland’s third largest city Aberdeen for the wide variety of leisure hotels. The draw back as any golf coach driver would be quick to tell you is the inevitable battle through the notorious Aberdeen traffic for golf north of the city. The £200,000 hotel investment will look to utilize the fast growing golf tourism interest north of the city.
Owner Euan Bain commented: “Golf tourism is a growth market for the region and as The White Horse Inn is within a 10 minute drive of the area’s finest golf courses we hope to build on that market. We are ideally placed to offer high quality accommodation for golfers.”
All the great links courses you will ever need to play in Aberdeen are located north of the city.
Unlike many golfing hotspots the tourism industry plays second to the Oil and Gas industry in Aberdeen. As Europe’s Oil and Gas capital the city’s vibrant energy sector can have hotels at capacity throughout the week and their rates some of the highest in the UK. Located just 10 minutes north of the city the White Horse Inn allows golfers closer proximity to the golf courses while paying considerably less for the privilege. A stay in Balmedie will offer a clean, comfortable base where guests can enjoy locally sourced produce in the restaurant and a busy local bar. If lavish isn’t budgeted or required this 20 bedroom facility is perfect.
