Aberdeen to host 2011 Walker
The world's sixth oldest club, Royal
Aberdeen has been chosen to hold the 2011 Walker Cup.
The club is said to provide "a fitting showcase
for amateur golf's premier match".
In the league table of golf course antiquity, the
Royal Aberdeen Golf Club stands at number six and by rights should
be known to a much wider audience around the world than it already
Today's spectacular layout that winds its way
between the great sand hills with many elevated tees and panoramic
views is once again largely from the imagination and genius of
Royal Aberdeen has several claims to fame not the
least of them that it was here, in 1783, that the rule that allows
only five minutes to look for a lost golf ball was established.
