Crail Golfing Society 1786

Crail Golfing Society is the seventh oldest golf club in the world and the second oldest in Fife after the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews. Intriguingly, the original club records from 1786 are still preserved. Crail has two championship courses; Balcomie Links and Craighead Links, with that latter being opened in 1998. Among the interesting facts about Crail is that Craighead was the first layout designed by renowned golf course architect Gil Hanse.
