Crail Balcomie Links

Crail Balcomie Links golf course, Fife
Length5922 yards

Crail Balcomie Links is a real touch of golfing history as it is the 7th oldest golf club in the world - golf has been enjoyed here since 1786.

The golf course was first used permanently by the Crail Golfing society in 1885 when golfing legend Old Tom Morris laid out the original nine holes. Tom stated at the time "there is not a better course in Scotland." It remains a beautiful course, superbly maintained, not too long and full of interest with magnificent views of the sea from every tee.

The sea comes into play on a number of holes where a decision to gamble with the beach or take the easier dogleg has to be made. Positioning of the tee shot is more important than length on most holes and you will experience some excellent short holes.

A second golf course, Craighead Links, was opened in 1998 and is also worth playing if you would like a full day of golf at this lovely location.
