Elie (The Golf House Club)

An honest test of golf played over classic links terrain.

Elie Golf Club

Just over 10 miles south of St Andrews lies Elie Golf Course. This is one of Scotland’s most delightful courses, with panoramic views over the Firth of Forth and a finish akin to St Andrews Old Course as the closing two holes take you back into the middle of the town. The course is steeped in history and dates back to 1589, when a royal charter was passed granting the villagers official permission to play over the links. James Braid, 5-times winner of The Open who was born in nearby Earlsferry, described the 13th hole at Elie as 'the best hole in golf'. A fine links course, this is worth a visit for golfers staying in and around the St Andrews area.
