YOUR GOLF COURSES

YOUR GOLF COURSES

CRAIL BALCOMIE LINKS

Ranked #67 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

One of the world's oldest golf clubs, Crail Golfing Society was founded in February 1786 and initially comprised membership of 11 local golfers. The club's original home was located at Sauchope just outside the picturesque fishing village of Crail and it was not until 1895, with the help of Old Tom Morris did they relocate to their present home at Balcomie Golf Links.

The Balcomie Links at Crail, though not particularly long, is a truly beautiful venue with superb views of the North Sea from every tee. Far removed from the bustle of everyday life, many holes climb and tumble alongside the water's edge and the rocky outcrops of the Forth shore. A truly memorable round and one not to miss.

DUMBARNIE LINKS

Other than Pebble Beach, there are few world-class courses able to offer such an expanse of beach and water frontage as that we have been blessed with at Dumbarnie Links. This rare piece of land has a mile and a half of sea frontage with panoramic views over the Firth of Forth.

At first glance Dumbarnie Links may have the appearance of the classic links courses where The Open Championship has been played since 1860.  However, the 345 acre site is particularly special.  Its dual elevations have provided the opportunity to create a number of elevated tees where holes play directly towards panoramic views of the Firth of Forth. Fourteen of the holes have views of the Bay and the Firth of Forth. The clubhouse will be situated 100-feet above sea level with spectacular sweeping views across the golf course and the Bay.

GOLF HOUSE CLUB ELIE

Ranked #43 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

Elie is one of the most highly regarded courses in Scotland and the historic links terrain effortlessly combines undulating fairways with large, fast and firm greens.

It also has some sensational views for golfers to enjoy and these play an important part in creating what is one of the most wonderful golfing experiences not just in Fife, but also in Scotland.

At 6,273 yards the course is not long, but its network of bunkers are beautifully placed to catch those that stray offline or misjudge their distances. This can be all too easy to do, especially as the prevailing south westerly breeze slackens or stiffens during the course of a round.

Elie’s quick and contoured greens add a further layer of protection and the manicured putting surfaces rank comfortably alongside the best in the country.

The course has hosted the British Seniors Championship, the Scottish Professionals Championship, the Scottish Ladies Championship and qualifying rounds for the Open Championship.

LUNDIN LINKS GOLF CLUB

Ranked #34 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

18 holes, 71 par, 6,371 yards

The Lundin Golf Club was founded in May of 1868.

The course was designed by Old Tom Morris and remains largely as it was some 100 plus years ago. The first five holes are in classic links tradition playing from the Clubhouse to the Mile Dyke. Players then cross the now extinct railway line and play the nine ‘new’ holes on what one might describe as a cross between links and parkland turf. Then back across the railway, the last four holes revert to the genuine links tradition.

Today Lundin Golf Club offers some of the finest examples of links holes in Scotland and for many years has been a worthy participant in the Final Qualifying stages of The Open prior to its staging at St. Andrews.

DUNNOTTAR CASTLE, ABERDEEN

If you had to pick just one castle in all of Scotland to trust with your life in a time of great danger then it would without any doubt be Dunnottar Castle. No other Scottish castle comes close in terms of a sense of sheer brooding impregnability. This is a castle which looks across to the nearby coastal cliffs and sea and whose presence, even today, conveys a very simply message: "You are not welcome."

The outcrop of rock on which Dunnottar Castle stands might have been designed specifically to permit the building of the most impregnable fortress in Scotland. Sheer cliffs 160ft high almost completely surround a flat area over three acres in size. The rock was once joined by a narrow fin to the mainland, but even this was carved away to ensure access along it was not possible.

CLO MOR CLIFFS & CAPE WRATH

The Clo Mor Cliffs are one of the highest cliffs in Great Britain. From sweeping panoramic views of Scotland’s mainland and tumultuous seas to puffins, kittiwakes, and fulmars flying about, standing atop this natural work of art is impressive. The cliffs drop almost 1,000 feet to the beach and the magical Smoo cave... an impressive sea cave guarded by a wondrous waterfall.

Cape Wrath offers remarkable views over the North Atlantic toward the Orkney Isles. It's also one of the wildest parts of the Highlands, full of wondrous geological features and steeped in maritime history. One of the few man-made structures in the area is the lighthouse built by Robert Stevenson in 1827 on the spectacular Clo Mor Cliffs. The area is also popular among bird-watchers, and for hikers, numerous trails crisscross the area, including some leading to lovely Loch Nevis.

THE BRITISH GOLF MUSEUM

From the 16th century to the present day, the whole history of the great game is explored at The British Golf Museum. Discover the equipment, personalities and prizes of our much loved sport. Brought to life with hands on activities, interactives and modern interpretation, this is a must see attraction.

Visit their new flagship exhibition space, 'The Open Gallery', exploring the rich history of golf's oldest Major. Also in the Museum there are two exciting temporary exhibitions on golfing greats Sir Henry Cotton and Freddie Tait. Please visit throughout the year for their program of weekly events and lecture series.

The museum is a 5 minute walk from the town centre and is situated directly opposite The Royal and Ancient Clubhouse. There is a large car park behind the museum, operated by Fife Council and a coach drop off point.

THE ST ANDREWS AQUARIUM

Few aquariums can boast as impressive a setting as St. Andrews Aquarium. Perched overlooking the coast and St. Andrews Bay, the views alone are quite stunning and are undoubtedly part of the draw for tourists, well, along with the sea creatures on view here.

As the town's top-rated family attraction, kids of all ages will be intrigued by such wee beasties as insects and reptiles, as well as countless fish species-including sharks and piranhas-and other local marine life such as seals and crabs, to name but a few. There's even a great display of crocodiles.

Other animals include meerkats, which can also be seen up-close through participation in a fun animal feeding experience. Other animals include penguins and seals, while some of the more docile reptiles and insects (including spiders) can be handled. In addition to a gift shop, the aquarium also has a café on-site.

LOCH NESS & URQHUART CASTLE

Located an easy (and scenic) 30-minute drive southeast of Inverness city center, Loch Ness is must-visit when exploring the Scottish Highlands. Famous the world over as the home of the Loch Ness Monster, this picture-perfect freshwater lake is also home to one of the country's most iconic fortresses: Urquhart Castle. Although now just ruins, it's easy to picture just how magnificent this castle once was.

In addition to superb exhibits dealing with the castle's rich history, the site also boasts a great café with stunning views over Loch Ness. For more on the mythical beast that inhabits the lake, visit the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, with its fascinating displays relating to the monster and the surrounding area.

 

KINGSBARNS DISTILLERY TOUR, ST ANDREWS

Realizing there was no nearby whisky distillery to satisfy those visiting St Andrews, and having come across a derelict 18th century farm situated just a short distance from Kingsbarns, former Old Course caddie Douglas Clement decided to build his own.

Kingsbarns Distillery was opened in 2014 and began producing a limited run of single malt scotch whisky each year.

The distillery tour is led by one of their senior guides and is suitable for smaller groups who have time to enjoy a more leisurely visit and a longer tutored whisky tasting.

Start your visit by being shown into the exhibition space which explores the history behind the name 'Kingsbarns’.

Your guide will explain how the spirits inside the distillery are made and then take you into a tasting room for an in-depth tutored tasting of their award-winning single malt 'Dream to Dram' and a selection of Kingsbarns single malt whiskies.

CAIRNGORMS NATIONAL PARK

The Cairngorms National Park, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, has everything from castles and distilleries to family attractions and endless outdoor fun. The UK’s largest National Park offers masses of things to do including watersports, snowsports, wildlife watching, and some incredible high and low level walking and cycling routes.

Experience some of the world’s most unique and rare wildlife and landscapes with a visit to one or more of the nine National Nature Reserves in the Park. There are hundreds of miles of paths and trails to explore throughout the park. Five of the UK's six highest mountains lie inside the park, along with the 3,000 ft. Munros  mountains, which can be found here too. There are huge forests of ancient native trees, cascading waterfalls, and more wildlife than you can image.

You can also enjoy some downtime amid the glorious scenery. Why not browse the bookshops and bars in Aviemore or make your way along the Malt Whisky Trail?

THE HIMALAYA'S PUTTING COURSE (ST ANDREWS LADIES' PUTTING CLUB)

A private club founded in 1867, the St Andrews Ladies' Putting Club course is open to the public daily from April to September (and in March and October, weather permitting).

Before 1860 the caddies of St Andrews had laid out a small putting area near where Rusacks Hotel now stands. They would play to pass the time while waiting for a bag. When the course was quiet a few young ladies would play.

There was some tension between the caddies and the ladies, so much so that it was decided a piece of ground be found where the ladies could play away from the caddies. There was an unused piece of ground to the north of the Swilcan Burn. The ground was rough with whins which were used by local washerwomen to dry clothes, and pitted with rabbit holes. A nine hole course was laid out by Old Tom Morris, requiring a cleek and a putter, and so the St Andrews Ladies’ Golf Club was formed in 1867.

The Himalayas lie between the famous Old Course and the spectacular West Sands, only a ten minute walk from the center of  St Andrews.
