Playing the Course
The beautiful yet quaint Cruden Bay is situated on the east coast of Scotland 23 miles north of Aberdeen and eight miles south of Peterhead.
It’s claimed that golf was played in the village of Cruden Bay as early as 1791.
The original course was commissioned by the Great North of Scotland Railway (GNSR) following the expansion of the railways at the end of the 19th century, designed by Old Tom Morris of St Andrews, and opened in 1899.
Cruden Bay offers an internationally famous golfing experience – old fashioned links golf at its best – on one of the best links courses in Scotland, and in 2015 was placed at No 52 in the world by “Golf Magazine”.
The course provides unique challenges demanding the skills of power, placement and fine judgement upon the discerning golfer.

Set against a backdrop of subtly contoured greens and magnificent panoramic views, Cruden Bay truly justifies its position as one of the finest links courses Scotland has to offer.
