Purchased by nine local businessmen, the former house of Lord Provost of Aberdeen became a very popular social meeting place for those who wished to develop sport among the youth of Aberdeen.

The Sportsman’s Club was built in the 19th Century for local silk merchant James Saint and was built to a standard impossible to emulate today.

The fish scale slating on the turrets, the stain glass window on the pitch pine stair cases, the massive curved glass bay windows and the astonishing craftsmanship of the ceiling in the Cowie bar are virtually unique to this building. The granite fronted building and its magnificent ”monkey puzzle” tree is one of the finest examples to be found anywhere and is one of the most famous landmarks on Queens Road.

It has become one of the most envied properties in Aberdeen and is a source of considerable pride to the members that they are fortunate enough to have such a magnificent building to call their own.

The realisation that it is unlikely the generosity of nine local businessmen who donated the Club to it’s members will ever be repeated makes the existing membership even more determined to keep their club as it is, where it is!

The Sportsman’s Club occupies one of the most prestigious buildings in Aberdeen but membership is not elitist - it is open to Men and Woman of all ages and backgrounds who share a love of sport and enjoy socialising in a relaxed atmosphere with helpful and friendly staff.
