About Peterhead Golf Club
Nestling in the dunes above the point where the River Ugie and the North Sea meet you will find Peterhead Golf Club, one of the finest links courses to be found in Scotland. The club, founded in 1841, is the 18th oldest golf club in the world. The original nine-hole course was laid out by Willie Park Jnr, with extensions to 18 holes being made in 1908 and a second nine-hole course added later. This is an original links course and its layout owes very little to man’s handiwork, as its creator used the natural contours of the land. Indeed, it is one of the most testing venues for a round of golf in Scotland.
About Cruden Bay Golf Club
A Unique & Unforgettable Experience
In a remote and beautiful area of rolling and massive sand dunes, a few miles to the north-east of Aberdeen lies a brooding seaside links like no other. The Cruden Bay Golf Club is a part of the very fabric of the golfing folklore of Scotland and a club with a long history. It was founded in 1791 at Port Errol and remained on that site for more than a century until it moved to its present location among the dunes in 1899. Tom Simpson laid out the original course in the days when the only way to move ground was with pick, shovel, toil and sweat. He fitted the holes in where he could and made an interesting and wonderful job of it. It has been said by one eminent chronicler that you may never publicly have more fun in broad daylight than at Cruden Bay.
