In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“This wild and woolly nine holes occupies the far north end of “Critch” Island, the last few miles of which are reached by a one-lane road with passing places. Most of the nine holes seem to radiate from a hill in the center of the property; playing out toward the points often requires a blind shot over a near crest, while the holes that return to the center feature uphill [or sometimes up-and-over] approaches to greens where you can only see the top half of the flagstick. The “signature” par-3 6th, playing over rocky crevasses along the shoreline, pays witness to the full power of the Atlantic Ocean, though with so little room for a green and a backstop before it falls away into the sea, it’s a golf hole only a geologist would love. But for those who love their golf sporty, every hole at Cruit Island has something to say for it.“
Cruit Island Golf Club received a score of 4 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
