Crail Golfing Society

Crail Golfing Society


Crail Golfing Society is set on the easternmost edge of the Kingdom of Fife, just 12 miles from St Andrews and the Home of Golf. Founded in 1786 the club dates back to the very origins of the game. The first mention of golf being played on the Balcomie Links is 1857. Much of the course as it is played today was down to the masterful eye of a true legend of the game, Old Tom Morris. Open Champion, father of Young Tom, and "Grandfather of Golf", Old Tom laid out the first 9 holes in 1895 and extended the course to 18 holes in 1900. The joy of playing this old links are the unique features and layout of each hole. From the opening drive to the final putt, the course will never be played the same way twice. Natural hollows, stone walls, shared greens and bunker faces clad in old railway sleepers make the Balcomie Links a special place to play golf. In 2019 Crail were proud to host The Scottish Amateur Championship. It was a double celebration because after a week of both strokeplay and matchplay the trophy was lifted by local member George Burns. While no two rounds of golf at Crail are ever the same, you will always be welcomed with the same special brand of Scottish hospitality.
