Cruden Bay Links is high on the list for any course aficionado, its not hard to see why, it breaks almost every rule on the book, the scale is immense. The moment you finish you want to go again.
Hole 4 could be the best par 3 I have ever played - that's a big call but its that good. The village to the left, the estuary, the seagulls, the aspect of the green, its breathtaking.
The View from the 9th tee is taken in while catching your breath from the walk up the hill, its worth the effort, the height of the tee is amazing.
Hole 13 with its serpentine hazard and obliquely angles green is enchanting.
Hole 14 with its "bathtub green" is like no other hole on planet earth, playing this course in dry condition really is like playing on another planet.
