Set on a wonderful stretch of coastline between Aberdeen and Peterhead, Cruden Bay is full of charm and character. With huge sand dunes, crumpled fairways, streams, gorse, plateau greens and blind shots, the course delivers a concentrated hit of links golf. It's a unique track that makes full use of the natural terrain.

Panellists' comments: "A fun place to play golf"; "Stunning natural links land, great scenery and many testing holes"
