Scotscraig Golf Club

Tayport, Fife | 18 holes | Links | Par: 71 | 6669 yards

With a location that is not adjacent to but near the coastline, Scotscraig Golf Club is provided with a landscape that has a unique blend of links and heathland features. The golf course features the sandy soil, fescue, and gorse of classic links but it is complemented by rolling woodlands, an atypical feature not found on most links.

With a location that is not adjacent to but near the coastline, Scotscraig Golf Club is provided with a landscape that has a unique blend of links and heathland features. The golf course features the sandy soil, fescue, and gorse of classic links but it is complemented by rolling woodlands, an atypical feature not found on most links. The club was founded in 1817, making it the 13th oldest club in the world. While visitors looking for true links golf courses often overlook it, Scotscraig has always been one of Scotland's hidden gems. The most memorable hole is the par-4 fourth hole. This tricky hole has a fairway that is well guarded to the left by large bunkers and there is treacherous heathery terrain to the right. It requires accuracy from start to finish, especially to reach the small plateau green.
