Elie Golf Club Scotland
Less than an hour’s drive from Edinburgh, only twenty minutes from the home of golf at St. Andrews and within sight of Muirfield - Elie provides a unique golfing experience. Formed in 1875, only a handful of clubs in Scotland are older than Elie, and the course is a classic example of links golf. From the opening hole, where a blind tee shot requires the starter to use a 30ft periscope from HMS Excalibur to ensure the way is clear, the course’s idiosyncratic charm becomes apparent. It might be relatively short at 6273 yards but make no mistake; it is a true test of golf and a very enjoyable one at that. The real character of the golf course is through the 6th to 14th holes, a stretch that takes golfers out to the sea and, with a wind off the Firth of Forth, leaves one in no doubt as to its seaside character. The Golf House Club, Elie (as it is formally called) combines both charm and tradition, and provides golfers an honest examination of links golf.
