we had so much fun on this beautiful course. Heard about it on the no laying up podcast.
We laughed out loud at the prospect of some holes.
Spectacular, but dry
The course was very dry. Greens ok and the staff was very helpfull
As always Cullen was in fantastic condition. Beautiful greens and it is a challenging and exciting layout. Friendly drink in the clubhouse afterwards although there was no catering on the day we visited.
Unique links course
Wet damp and breezy day did not take away from a stunningly different course with stunning views greens and fairways vgood condition next time in Scotland will be back
A proper holiday course
It's just my opinion!
Round in 1hr 45 minutes with the family on the adjacent excellent beach! It's short and great fun.
Fairways and greens good.
5 great holes 7,10,11,13,14
13 good holes Some interesting holes that are odd the first time they are played (2 completely blind par 3s).
The 5 holes on the higher ground don't play like true links holes.
Paid £14. Rate £22. Definitely value for money.
Play again- absolutely.
This course is a one of a kind. There are plenty of blind shots and the setting has red rocks which look like they belong in the Bay of Fundy. Don't let the par of 63 put you off. Plenty of the par 3s are over 200 yards. Did I mention that this links was first routed by Old Tom?
The routing is unique as is the setting and par. There are uphill and downhill par 3s, blind shots, etc. It all adds to the charm of the place. You will not find a course like this one anywhere. Reminded me of Shiskine in that it is one of a kind.
Then there is the value-26 pounds (about $32) for a day ticket during the week. The locals say that plenty of people go around 3 times-I did twice. If you are about a championship test, not sure how much you'd like this place. If you want something unique at an incredible value-come here. Not many do, so the rounds were quick. Off the course, this is a proper golf club with a putting green, restaurant and locker room. In the clubhouse-get the Cullen Skink.
For value, this is amazing. Playing golf on what was once ocean floor is great too. Couldn't recommend a trip of courses only like this, but if you are around the area and playing some championship courses, this would be something completely different. If you are looking for an "Only in Scotland' day, then come here.
Cullen Links really is a hidden gem in more ways than one. It is a unique par of 63 with blind holes and stunning views. Course difficulty is very dependant on the wind where it can really put a golfers grit and determination to the fore.
