Balcomie Links, founded in 1786, is the seventh oldest golf club in the world. This hidden gem is located on the Fife coast just 8 miles from St Andrews. Designed by The legendary Old Tom Morris you should expect stunning views, fantastic use of the rocky terrain and many wonderful holes. The traditional links features some fantastic risk-reward holes such as ‘Hell Hole’ where you drive out over the Sea and sandy beach to a tight fairway. Its called Hell Hole for a good reason. If the wind blows a perfect drive is required to find any semblance of safety. Anything else is likely to result in disaster or walk of shame to the beach!. You can bail out left but need to avoid the huge strategically placed bunker.
The course is fun to play and has many wonderful features. Many of the holes are framed by the Rocky terrain and there are a few Clifftop greens where you only see the very tip of the flag to navigate. There’s also a lovely wee barn on the first hole that plays from a clifftop to a wide fairway below. Stay left to avoid some knee-high fescue and prepare to hit a great pitch over a bunker to a blind green and avoid the surrounding burn at the same time. Playing this hole in the strong wind will remind you to never again hit a 60-degree wedge into the Scottish wind.
The par 3s are long and you need to carefully plan your approach. After the round, there’s a lovely Cliff Top Clubhouse that looks out over the 18th Hole. You’ll see some wonderful antiques that go back to 1786 and artifacts in the huge display cabinet. The Clubhouse is very friendly, not pretentious and perfect for refreshment and perhaps some wonderful Scottish Fish and Chips after your round.
