At less than 5,000 yards from the back tees, Cullen Golf Club doesn't present much of a challenge on paper. But Cullen's astounding scenery and diverse holes make it a quirky and entertaining round for locals and for those looking for fun golf courses to play during a Scotland golf vacation.

Designed by the legendary Old Tom Morris, the front nine at Cullen Golf Club take you next to the cliffs overlooking the Moray Firth Coast, while the back nine leads you back to beach level, making an 18-hole round at Cullen Golf Club a scenic delight that will have golfers gasping in awe at its meticulous beauty. And while the scenery is indeed stunning, the level of play also stands out.

The 510-yard par-5 No. 15 hole will have long hitters pulling out their big guns, while the No. 14, a par-3, features the 80 foot Boar Crag to navigate. All told, Cullen Golf Club is a stunning addition to an already brilliant golf region.

Super fun and quirky course

Although short Cullen Links is a fantastic course with brilliant scenery and some amazing natural features worked into hole layouts to create some challenging approach shots and tee shots on par 3 holes. Will definitely be back!

Saturday 4th September 2021

First time playing Cullen, have heard a lot about the course and it’s par 3 holes, some of the par 3 set ups were amazing, a good short but tricky course, condition was brilliant, unfortunately was held up by a few four balls infront of us, but didn’t let it bother us as we took in some amazing views and great weather, will definitely be back

Stunning course

Always make this a must do on every visit to Moray. An absolutely stunning course. Don't let the par 63 make you think this is an easy course, with 4 hidden par 3's these can make or break your round.

Cullen in November

Always great to play the course at Cullen. With 10 par 3s it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that it can not be that challenging, then you will be in for a surprise.
The 2nd, 4th , 7th, 12th and 13th will test your nerve and your club choice.
The views over the bay from the upper levels of the course are spectacular.
The course was in great condition lots of run on the ball and the green were excellent.
Friendly and helpful staff and the people playing the course always have time for a quick chat too.

Looking forward to playing again. Hope the weather is as sunny
