No 6 – Cullen Links Golf Club

Cullen is arguably the most unique of Old Tom’s designs. Using the natural golfing terrain and the site’s best features to perfection, he carved an eye-catching course in this small village in Moray. Old Tom did so in 1881, where prior to that perhaps only three holes had existed. Situated east of Elgin on the North Sea coast, the course sits on Cullen Beach overlooking Cullen Bay and was fully opened in 1905 after being extended from nine holes. A par-63 at 4,623 yards, it features 10 par-3’s across its 18 holes – including four in a row on the back nine. It’s highly entertaining, memorable and challenging at the same time.
