Beautiful landscape, cozy atmosphere and challenges for all golfers and nature lovers. The beach and the ruins of the castle makes everything more special and you can get the wish to stay one more day just to catch the spirit of the real beauty of wild North East Scotland.

Played last week(end of Sept) at Cruden Bay for the first time since recent course changes. They have made an incredible golf course even better!! Condition was excellent and everything about the course, the club, and the service was top notch. The only thing more spectacular is the view...from everywhere!!!
