Crail Golf Club

Crail golfing Society who cePicture of Crial Golf Courselebrated their bi-centenary in 1986 hosts two courses. The Balcomie, the shorter of the two, is an unusual course in that the holes have been laid out with the front nine containing six par fours and the back nine only three. There have also been some interesting names given to the holes, such like Fluke Dub (4th), Hell's Hole (5th) and Lang Whang all good Scots names. The 5th Hell's Hole does live up to its name, with the decision to be brave and chance the ball over the rocks and beach or just to play safe. Onto the last few holes you will find their challenge are only made more daunting with knowing that the onlookers from the clubhouse will be watching our every stroke.Picture of Crail Golf

The Craighead course is a relatively new course and was opened to help release the ever increasing pressure on the Balcomie Links. Designed by American Gil Hanse, whose philosophy to "keep it simple, keep it natural", has taken full advantage of the natural splendor of this land to provide a traditional and challenging course.
