CRAIL - BALCOMIE

A combination of stunning coastal views, centuries of history and hugely enjoyable golf makes Balcomie Links one of Scotlands golfing gems.

This traditional links course was laid out by Old Tom Morris and opened in 1895. Created around the natural contours of the land, Balcomie has the unusual combination of three par five, six par three and nine par four holes, producing a tough par of 69. Extraordinary holes abound, along with those which seriously challenge and those which are more comfortable. The sum total is a layout which both enchants and delights, but which also demands and punishes, testing all the skills and nerve of the golfer. Big hitters who believe Balcomie will be easy, do so at their peril

CRAIL - CRAIGHEAD

With spectacular views - the sea is visible from every hole - Craighead Links achieved fame in the 2001 Guinness Book of Records for the most nationalities playing in an international tournament.

This challenging, cliff-top course was designed by world-renowned golf course architect Gil Hanse to provide golfers with a true test of their skills in a links environment. Built in the style of a traditional links course - with no trees protecting golf shots from the wind - Craighead provides panoramic views of up to 100 miles, in addition to legally protected Sites of Special Scientific Interest and a World War I defence post. The course features Danes Dyke, a 1200 year old defensive wall built by Viking marauders to keep out the local Pictish tribes and which comes into play on four holes. The course was opened in 1998 and achieved almost immediate recognition when the R&A held the World Junior Open there in 2000. The recognition of its quality has continued, with the Scotland v Spain International hosted there in 2006 and the Seniors Home Internationals in 2010.

From 2011 the Battle Trophy will be played annually over the course as a World Counting Event and in 2013 the prestigious Scottish Amateur Team Championships will also be played over Craighead.
