Crail Balcomie Links

The level of fun on a windy day at Crail is like nothing else ever experienced in golf.

Sports Illustrated


Dating back to 1786, The Crail Golfing Society is the 7th oldest in the world, but the Balcomie links came to life a century later at the hands of Old Tom Morris. It’s a course designed to put a smile on your face, with short walks from green to tee and nothing too fearsome beyond the occasional pot bunker. The views of the sea and Fife are worth the trip alone.
