    Some say this course is too much of a roller coaster. Bunk! Golf is a game and is supposed to be fun .... and Cruden Bay is a hell of a lot of fun. Not to mention the views. There are vistas here as picturesque as on any links course in Scotland. Club members and staff never tire of telling about how my Tom Watson enjoys this course. It's easy to see why. If you're near Aberdeen, do NOT miss the chance to take the short drive up the coast to Cruden Bay and play this gem.
