Crail Golf Course

Days Out & About

There are thousands of visitors to Fife who come to the Mecca Of Golf at St Andrews with the fervent desire to play on the Old Course. I know this because I've met many of them but its often a case where even the offer of riches cannot expand the finite resources available in St Andrews. Luckily, the same original designers of the old course were also responsible for many features on the seventh oldest golf course at Crail, just ten miles south of St Andrews.

Crail Golfing Society have a golf course at the most eastern point of land in Fife and located close to the lighthouse and former Fife Ness Coastguard Station. Golfing legend Old Tom Morris laid out the Balcomie course in 1895; and in 1998 a second course, Craighead Links, was designed by Gil Hanse, whose outstanding work was recognised in 2009 with the Golf Course Architect of the Year Award. As such, both the old course at St Andrews and Crail are apt to share similar challenges and weather. Being lesser known brings the blessings of availability and far more car parking space, a less formal clubhouse and a better chance to play the game rather than merely observe it at distance. Wiser golfers thus have the opportunity to experience similar conditions and challenges to that of St Andrews and costing far less in the process too!
