Cruden Bay

Course Info

Grampian, Scotland
All Courses

All the things you love about golf in Scotland can be found right here at Cruden Bay, from fast greens, sea views and unpredictable winds to undulating fairways, blind tee shots and, crucially, the warmest of welcomes. This is an inspirational venue for golfing tour parties from all over the world, and it’s ready and waiting to show you why golf in Scotland is unlike golf anywhere else.

Located on the east coast between Peterhead and Aberdeen, Cruden Bay has been delighting golfing enthusiasts since the 1890s. It’s a popular choice for tour organisers, given its history and its sheer beauty, but it’s also something of a quirky course, cleverly designed to make players have to think their way around. If you’re a golfing history buff, you’ll know that any course that has the stamp of Old Tom Morris and Archie Simpson on it will be a special one.

While each hole has its own unique charms, keep a close eye on the fourth when you play here. Named after the nearby village of Port Erroll, it’s a 196-yard par three that features an imposing carry over a chasm from the tee. To the left there’s a river and to the right there’s a huge sand dune, and of course there’s also the wind to take into account. Prepare to be tested to the very max!

If you have factored in a couple of days off from the golf, you can choose from a wide range of tourist attractions and landmarks to explore. They include Peterhead Prison Museum and Buchan Ness Lighthouse to the north, and Aberdeen’s Tollbooth Museum and Maritime Museum to the south. Needless to say, you can also enjoy wonderfully long and always fascinating walks along the waterfront from here.

We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…

Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
