Peterhead Old Course (67)
With the establishment of Peterhead Golf Club in 1841 the clubs history is amongst the elite of Scotland. The current ‘Old Course’ began as a 9 hole course in 1892 on Craigewan links, designed and laid out by Willie Park Junior a dual winner of the British Open Championship. The ‘Old Course’ was extended to 18 holes in 1908 and a second 18 hole course, the ‘New Course’ was established in 1923. During the Second World War reduced resources resulted in the ‘New Course’ being neglected, however it does exist today as the 9 hole ‘New Course’.
Visitors to Craigewan Links can expect a warm welcome from both the clubhouse staff and members alike. The modern clubhouse provides all the facilities you would expect, with various catering options available on request.
The resident professional golf coach Harry Dougal, will be delighted to advise, and direct you on the challenges that await you on the course. And once on the course the panoramic views of the river Ugie, the links, and the un-spoilt sand dunes and beaches are breathtaking.
The Old Course provides a golfing challenge to golfers of all standards, and the prevailing weather conditions adds to the degree of difficulty. Once you have negotiated the “valley holes” and battled home, I would invite you to regale the events of the day whilst partaking in a small libation in either the snug bar, or the Craigewan lounge.
