Crail Golfing Society - Balcomie and Craighead Links

Crail Golfing Society, Balcomie and Craighead Links, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland

Looking south-east and taken from the beach below the clubhouse with the Fife Ness coastguard station in the distance.

Crail Golfing Society is one of the oldest golf clubs on the planet (to be exact the 7th ever) having been formed by the Gentlemen of Crail in 1786.

To put that in perspective, it was two years before both the death of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the election of George Washington as first US president.

Recent modifications to the clubhouse and the addition of Craighead Links in 1998 have made this one of the best golfing challenges and best value clubs to visit in the whole of Scotland. In the top left you can just see the Fife Ness harbour and coastguard station.
