Hooked On Golf Blog

I’m happy to post my latest, really cool image gallery from the latest HOG World tour trip to Scotland last week.  My pals and I took a 20 minute drive southeast of St. Andrews to the town of Crail.  In Crail is a tremendous Scottish links course, Balcomie Golf Links.  Old Tom Morris himself laid out Balcomie Golf Links back in 1895, the same year he rolled out the “New Course” at St. Andrews.

Fantastic Balcomie Golf Links in Crail, Scotland

There’s a second course on the property which opened in 1998 called Craighead Links.  That one was designed by Gil Hanse, designer for the 2016 Olympic Games golf course.  Didn’t get a chance to play that one.  That’s a good reason to head back there!

Crail is also the home of Crail Golfing Society, the 7th oldest golf club in the world.  What a cool club to be a member of!  Thanks to the Crail Golfing Society for letting us my friends and I hang out in your lovely pub and enjoy your fantastic food!

More on Balcomie later on but for now click either photo to see the whole gallery of Balcomie Golf Links images!
