Elie is one of the finest links courses in Fife and for visitors, touring golfers and members alike it offers a warm welcome and an honest test of golf played over classic links terrain.
It is one of the oldest golf clubs in the country and lies just 12 miles from the championship courses at St Andrews, the Home of Golf.
The game has been played across the historic Elie links since the 15th Century and given the panoramic views and superb setting it is little wonder the course has established itself as such a firm favourite for visitors over the years.
Tucked away in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife - Neuk is the Scots word for corner - Elie is less than an hour’s drive from Edinburgh and only 20 minutes from St Andrews.
The course is open all year round, offering up its charms to visitors whether they come in the height of summer or the depth of winter.
Indeed, Sir Michael Bonallack, OBE, perhaps sums it up best when he says: “If you love links Golf, you will love Elie. Close cut running fairways with firm, fast, true greens. A memorable and enjoyable test for golfers of every ability.”
The 63rd Open Amateur Golf Tournament for boys and girls under the age of 18 on 01 January 2015 is being played over the Elie Links Course from 13 - 15 April 2015.
