Peterhead Golf Club

3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Peterhead Golf Club Est. 1841

Where2Golf says: 

Peterhead Golf Club is home to a pleasant yet challenging seaside links course, also known as the "Craigewan Links". The current 18 hole layout began as a nine-hole course in 1892, designed by Willie Park Jr. It was extended to 18 holes in 1908. A second 18-hole layout, the “New Course”, was established in 1923 and exists today as a 9-hole course layout.

The wonderfully scenic Craigewan Links occupies a natural peninsula of duneland, bounded by the River Ugie on two sides and the North Sea on its east side. Beach and headland views abound, as do a plethora of pot bunkers, in range from the tee and stoutly defending the greens. When the wind blows across the course, you'll experience the joys of "raw" links golf at its most challenging.

Did you know?

Peterhead Golf Club was established in 1841, making it the 18th oldest golf club in the world. By 1800 there were in fact only about ten golf clubs in existence (according to the R&A's records), with most of them on the east coast of Scotland. It appears that it was not until the second half of the 19th-century that golfers formed themselves into clubs, which places Peterhead amongst the elite in terms of longevity.
