From issue 32 of Golf Course Architecture, published in April 2013.
Cruden Bay, twenty miles north of Aberdeen in Scotland, is a little off the beaten track, but it is also a favourite of many travelling golfers, so perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised that the winner of the last Gopher Watch was an American! Congratulations to Doug Wright of course building firm Heritage Links, whose name was first out of the hat, and who takes the prize.
Sandy has moved himself to a rather warmer location this time, but it’s an even better known course than Cruden Bay, so we shan’t be handing out any clues here, either. If the bunkers don’t give it away, perhaps the trees will. Answers, as usual, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
