Crail Golfing Society
St Andrews, Scotland
Crail Golfing Society overview
Crail Golfing Society is home to 36 holes of links golf. The Balcomie Links was originally an Old Tom Morris-design and dates back over 100 years. In contrast, the Craighead Links opened in 1998 after Gil Hanse was tasked with creating a modern links course on the clifftop adjacent to the original course. Two great courses to enjoy during a day at Crail.
Did You Know
The first 9-holes were laid at the Crail Golfing Society we know today by Old Tom Morris in 1894, opening in 1895. However, before this, the club played at Sauchope, a coastal links area a few miles south of today’s club location.
