Balcomie Links is home to the Crail Golfing Society and is the seventh-oldest golf club in the world. The society has been around since 1786 and the course has limited play available to the public.
The original course was laid out in 1895 by the legendary Old Tom Morris. He once noted his Balcomie design was one of his all-time favorites. In 1998, a second course was built: Craighead Links. The club is a modern, worthy alternative to its history older sibling.
Balcomie Links in Crail is a beautiful links course set along the Kingdom of Fife coastline. Several holes run along the sea, making many shots intimidating.
The inland holes on the course have a good deal of elevation, and the par-3 14th has a 90-foot drop from tee to green. The fifth hole, called "Hell's Hole," is where you must decide whether to drive over water or take the longer, safe route.
The final hole is a difficult 203-yard par 3.
