Craighead Links
at Crail Golfing Society

St Andrews, Scotland

Craighead Course overview

The Craighead Links at Crail Golfing Society is the modern alternative to the Balcomie Course at Crail. Opening for play in 1998, this Gil Hanse design uses a strip of clifftop land that the club acquired, using earth movement to great effect. With no trees or natural shelter, golfers are exposed to the elements on this challenging par-72, 6722-yard links course which runs adjacent to the North Sea.

Another interesting feature of the course that was incorporated by Hanse is Danes Dyke, a defensive wall approximately 1200 years old which was constructed by Viking invaders to keep out the local Pictish tribes. This wall comes into play on four of the holes.
