Overview

Tom Simpson visited the course in July 1923 and said the greens were some of the best he had seen of the 60 courses he visited that year. (Aberdeen Press and Journal - Monday 16 July 1923)

The course is accessed by a footbridge over the River Ugie from the car park on the opposite bank.


Golf Course Review

Peterhead Golf Club is found in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, midway between Cruden Bay and Fraserburgh. Craigewan Links lies to the north of Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland with the River Ugie bordering the course to the west and south and the North Sea to the east.

The Club was founded in 1841, making it the 18th oldest golf club in the world. The course which the club now plays over, known as Craigewan Links, was laid out as a 9 hole course in 1892. The course was extended to 18 holes in 1908 by Archie Simpson.

The original Willie Park Jr holes at Peterhead Golf Club are the 4th, 5th, 6th and 13th. New holes dating from the 1960s include holes 1, 2 and 3 and the 16th. The remaining holes can be attributed to Archie Simpson. There is some speculation as to whether James Braid was called up to bunker the course after 1908.
