Crail Balcomie Links, Crail

Crail Golfing Society is the seventh oldest club in the world, with the distinction of possessing a full set of minutes from its institution in 1786. Originally designed by the legendary Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews, this delightful par 68 classic links and parkland is situated at Fifeness, the most easterly point of the East Neuk of Fife. Unusual, in that each hole is within sight of the sea, Crail offers a testing to golfers of all standards, and “purists” the world over treasure these links as “original” and a testament to the orgins of golf. Crail also goes by the name of the Crail Golfing Society, and golfing legend Old Tom Morris laid out the original nine holes at Balcomie in 1895. Situated 11 miles from the famous St Andrews golf courses, The Balcomie Links is relatively short at 5720 yards but its imaginative and tricky layout mean that it's no pushover. Crail golf course tempts the golfer with difficult but rewarding shots including the 5th hole, known as "Hell's Hole", where a successful shortcut across the shoreline can prove either a round-winner or a disastrous mistake. This course is one of the “sleepers” that most miss, but have so much character that it is perfect for a second round after a more difficult morning course! Crail is situated 10 miles SE of St. Andrews and 2 miles east of Crail.
