Scotscraig is a links-style course that dates back to August of 1817. The rolling natural terrain of the fairways and fast greens are two reasons why Scotscraig is also one of the best kept courses in Fife.
The course plays a par 71 and is 6,550 yards from the medal tees and 5,791 from the forward tees. Scotscraig is close to the sea, but is a parkland course. The back nine is longer by more than 200 yards and finishes with two par-4s just under 400 yards.
The course is penal, but can be enjoyed by all skill levels. The signature hole is the fourth, which is an average-length par 4, but has a difficult finish over rugged heather to a plateau green that is difficult to stick.
Scotscraig is used as a Final Open Qualifying Course when The Open is played at neighboring St. Andrews. Before and after competition, the conditions are superb, with smooth, fast greens and tall, devastating rough. Whin bushes go along with the rolling nature of the fairways and every skill level will find Scotscraig to be one of their finest rounds in Fife.
High tea is served in the recently renovated Playfair Dining room. There, the club also serves snacks, lunch and refreshments and caters to large groups. The club also has a lounge, the Maitland-Dougall Lounge.
