Golf Course/
Elie

Formed in 1875, only a handful of clubs in Scotland are older than Elie, and the course is a classic example of links golf. From the opening hole, where a blind tee shot requires the starter to use a 30-foot periscope from HMS Excalibur to ensure the way is clear, the course’s idiosyncratic charm becomes apparent.

James Braid was born and brought up in Earlsferry and learned his golf over this links course, which has no par-5s and only two par-3s. It might be relatively short at 6,273 yards but make no mistake; it is a true test of golf and a very enjoyable one at that. James Braid asserted that the 13th at Elie was "the finest in all the country."

This course rewards the patient players rather than the overpowering. Take your time to appreciate the incredible structure of this interesting links course.

"It's quirky and it's the most enjoyable course I know," said five-time Open Championship winner Peter Thomson. "If I had my way, I'd build Elies all over the world."

The Golf House Club, Elie combines both charm and tradition, and provides golfers an honest examination of links golf. Visitors are always made to feel welcome, and Elie is one course to which they return year after year.
