Golf Course/
Crail Craighead

Craighead Links achieved fame in the 2001 Guinness Book of Records for the most nationalities playing in an international tournament.

This challenging, cliff-top course was designed by world-renowned, golf course architect Gil Hanse to provide golfing aficionados with a true test of their shot making skills in a links environment.

Built in the style of a traditional links course - with no trees protecting golf shots from the wind - Craighead provides panoramic views of up to 100 miles, Four sets of tees – red, blue, yellow and white – provide lengths between 5,340 and 6,722 yards, and pars of 74 (red), 69 (blue) and 72 (yellow and white).

With no two consecutive holes facing in the same direction, managing the wind is a significant factor in playing the course.

A real puzzler arrives early in the shape of the second hole, a right angle 364-yard dogleg, with a sloping green and deep bunkers. This hole played the hardest in the international tournaments held on the course.

Craighead Links is particularly unique because the sea is visible from every hole. The course greatly complements its sister course at Balcomie with open landscapes and stunning scenery that you will never forget.
