No 7 – Cruden Bay Golf Club

Cruden Bay is one of the most synonymous names in Scottish golf, a venue steeped in history and design. Offering a unique and unforgettable experience, the course in the north-east – some 25 miles north of Aberdeen – represents old-fashioned links golf at its very best. The course was commissioned by the Great North of Scotland Railway following the expansion of the railways at the end of the 19th century, designed by Old Tom, and opened in 1899. The creation demands all facets of a player’s game, against a backdrop of subtly contoured greens and magnificent panoramic views.
