Great pics Kyle. Which hole will be removed from the course when the new 13th comes into play?

The stellar 13th (par 5, 543 yards)Tee shots may flirt with this burn (which also crosses the 10th and 11th) when the winds are helping, though a mighty blast of 330 yards is required to reach it.
Isn't the 15th part of what makes CB great. CB does not follow all the rules of ideal golf design. That is part of its charm. Anthony
The only real complaints one is likely to hear concern the “goofy finishing holes,” particularly the bathtub 14th green, blind par 3 15th and semi-blind par 3 16th. It seems that wheels are in motion to “correct” these issues, details of which are discussed at the following link:http://golfclubatlas.com/forum/index.php?topic=22594.0
The fledgling “new 13th” will probably be played with a mid- to long iron by most amateurs players.
Kyle, What took you so long? Love the pics. My favorite course in the world because of playability and variety. Stunning beuty. Did you get a chance to visit with Ally? Anthony
KyleI was expecting the usual good quality photos that you have been so kind to share with us all. However, I must say that your Cruden Bay photos are absolutely excellent.I believe they are your best set of photographs yet – many thanks for sharing them with us.Melvyn
If I were to close my eyes and imagine my perfect golf course, it would look very similar to those pictures of Cruden Bay.
