Cruden Bay Golf Club


Both Old Tom Morris and Archie Simpson had a hand in crafting Cruden Bay Golf Club, a quirky (and extremely picturesque) golf ride in Aberdeenshire that challenges with blind shots and major elevation changes. Pete Dye has called Cruden bay "outsized, non-conformist, unpredictable, flamboyant." According to, "the only thing keeping these links from having an even wider renown is the location up the eastern coast of Scotland. The fact is, travelers willing to make the trek are rewarded handsomely."
