Balcomie - Fantastic Links
Very old course on North Sea coast 12 miles south of St Andrews. Clubhouse is for members and players only - so dont waly there from Crail to have a look around and expect to have a pint and a sandwich if any members are lurking in the shadows. The course is short but very hard when the wind blows. Stunning views throughout. £49 green fees may seem expensive, but it's well worth it. Some fairways are a bit close to each other (or 4 holes share the same very wide fairway). I would play midweek when the course is quiet otherwise it might be a tad frustrating.
Craighead - Is not Balcomie
Lovely course, set out for the American market, nice pretty condition, I'd dispute links over cliff top course, good greens, super fairways, however, if going for a true links test, take the Balcomie Course, they charge the same, but offer Craighead on certain golf deals, Next time Balcomie
