Located 10 miles along the Fife coast from St Andrews, the Balcomie Links at the Crail Golfing Society is the 7th oldest club in the world.
Crail is one of the old, classically designed courses in Scotland. The sea comes into play on a number of holes, where a decision to gamble with the beach or take the easier dog-leg has to be made. Positioning of the tee shot is more important than length on most holes and some of the finest short holes to be found on any course will be a lasting memory.
This course was first used permanently by the Society in 1895, when it was opened by Tom Morris who stated 'there is not a better course in Scotland'. The Balcomie course had been in existence long before this and there is a record of a society competition being played in September 1857.
