The Club

In 1786, three years before the Bastille was stormed, a group of eleven gentlemen met at the Golf Inn in Crail and
together formed the Crail Golfing Society.
The records of that historic day are still preserved; indeed the society still possesses a complete set of minutes
from the date of its inception.
In those early days the Society members wore scarlet jackets with yellow buttons and dined at the Golf Inn after
a day on the links. The local punch flowed and a good time was doubtless had by all - now those were the days!

The Course
When you walk the splendid Balcomie Links, you are following in the footsteps of thousands of golfers over the last two centuries. As you do so, you
will no doubt experience the same enjoyment as they did, for Balcomie is a beautiful course, not too long and full of interest with magnificent views
of the sea from every tee.
Several of the fairways wind alongside golden sandy bays and rocky outcrops of the Firth foreshore. They come into play at the 2nd, 4th and Hell's
Hole - the 5th, where you must make up your mind whether to carry the beach or take the east way round.
You will love the challenge and no doubt take with you everlasting memories of the 13th and 14th. Like so many top courses, the last few holes will
test you, but no matter how badly you fare, you will remember Balcomie as one of your finest days on any golf course.

Directions
Air If you are making a golfing tour of courses in Scotland you will not necessarily want to land at, or fly from, the closest airport to Crail. Thus
information is given here on all the airports in Scotland.
Dundee airport is the nearest to Crail (25 miles) but it is small and offers only connections within the UK. Scottish Airways offers return flights to
Dundee from London City Airport and Flywhoosh offers return flights from Belfast and Birmingham.
Edinburgh airport (51 miles) and Glasgow airport (94 miles) provide a wide range of UK and international connections. Car hire is available at both
airports.
Aberdeen airport (94 miles) has direct connections to many European countries.
Prestwick airport (117 miles) provides connections to many European countries. Ryanair operates cheap return flights to Prestwick from London
Stanstead.
Inverness airport (166 miles) is the farthest from Crail. It handles UK flights only.
EasyJet operates cheap return flights to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness from London Gatwick and to Aberdeen from London Luton.
Rail The main east coast line from London to Aberdeen passes through Fife. The nearest station to Crail is Leuchars (16 miles) but if you wish to
arrange car hire then Dundee would be more convenient. The National Rail Enquiries website will help you plan your journey.
Road There are two main roads from England into Scotland. On the west the A74 crosses the border at Gretna, and becomes the M74 as it nears
Glasgow. This would normally be the route used if you travelled up through England on the M6 motorway to Carlisle. On the east the A1 enters
Scotland at Berwick-upon-Tweed and follows the coast round to Edinburgh.
Sea If you are travelling from Europe it is worth considering using the Zeebrugge to Rosyth car ferry. Rosyth is only 40 miles from Crail and provides
an excellent central location for starting and finishing a trip to Scotland. This service is operated by Superfast Ferries. From Northern Ireland there are
ferries from Belfast to Stranraer (169 miles from Crail), operated by Stena Line , and from Larne to Cairnryan (163 miles) and Troon (117 miles), both
operated by P&O Irish Sea .
