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 Morris 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. Only 2 hours drive from St Andrews. Rated 61st best course in the world by the US Publication, Links Magazine, rated No 2 in 2012 for Top Fun Courses in Great Britain & Ireland by Golf World Magazine. Awarded top course in Scotland at the 2012 Golf Tourism Scotland Awards.
