Crail's Balcomie Links is set along the Fife coastline and several holes run alongside the sea and and rocky outcrops of the Firth foreshore which come into play at the second, fourth and fifth - ominously called Hell's Hole - where you must make up your mind whether to carry the beach or take the long way round. The 13th and 14th are superb and the last few holes are a test. No wonder Old Tom Morris. who designed it, described it as his favourite course. A second course, Craighead, has panoramic views and is located just south of the present clubhouse.

|Local Directions:||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.|
