Golf Course/
Crail Balcomie

A combination of stunning coastal views, centuries of history and hugely enjoyable golf is what makes Balcomie Links one of Scotland’s most finely polished, golfing gems.

This traditional, classic links course was laid out by the old master himself, Tom Morris, and opened in 1895. Created in the days when course design was governed by the natural lie of the land, the many memorable holes include the first, which sets the tone for the enjoyment to come with an opening drive from the cliff top to the welcoming fairway below.

The fifth, often referred to as Hell's hole by Ryder Cup captain Sam Torrance, might be the hardest hole in Scotland and many of the hole’s challenges are compounded by the mighty Scottish winds.

Perhaps the course's most challenging hole, though, is the extraordinary 13th. This hole is played up and over a vertical cliff to an invisible sloping green.

Balcomie Links Course provides the golfer with the classic dilemma of risk and reward: play it safe or go for glory. Take your chances at this incredible links experience.
