What the club says: A combination of stunning coastal views, centuries of history and hugely enjoyable golf is what makes Balcomie Links one of Scotland’s most finely polished, golfing gems.

This traditional, classic links course was laid out by the old master himself, Tom Morris, and opened in 1895. Balcomie has the unusual combination of three par fives, six par threes and nine par fours, producing a tough par of 69.



Most Helpful Review

Played Balcomie in a horrendous wind, absolutely great fun. Course in excellent condition for December 30th, greens amazing. A must visit for everyone. Clubhouse very busy, service was excellent, best bacon rolls in the business. If you have not played this course, find a way to get there, soon. - Jan 6 2017

Stewart A rated 4 out of 5 - Jun 1 2018

Quirky, testing, fun
Surrounded by the likes of St Andrews and Kingsbarnes, Crail is a little bit different. It's a older, narrower course and gives perhaps a more genuine insight into a true Scottish member's club compared to it's near neighbours. When we played it the haar (fog) moved in reducing visibility to less than 100 yards but that's far from normal. It was still a lovely walk.

Great course with awesome views, unfortunately I had the wettest round I've ever played in with crazy winds, the only down side was being too wet to play the Balcomie course. Definitely go here, it's awesome
