Panmure Golf Club
Panmure is a real hidden gem and not to be missed. In addition to the sand dunes you would expect from a links course, Panmure also has hillocks and heather to test the seaside golfer. It's only just over an hour from Elie by car.
Gullane No. 1
As a regular qualifying course for the Open Championship the quality of this course is undisputed. It also has views to rival any other, helping to make a round here truly memorable. Gullane is just over an hour and a half's drive from Elie.
North Berwick Golf Club
The club here was established back in 1832, making it one of the oldest in the country. It has regularly been a qualifying course for the Open Championship and has twice hosted the British Seniors Open Championship. North Berwick is 75 miles from Elie and it takes an hour and three quarters to drive there.
Luffness New Golf Club
Designed by Old Tom Morris and founded in 1894, the course at Luffness has a great golfing pedigree. A fair test of golf it punishes those that stray off line or who struggle to master the breeze that so often blows off the Firth of Forth. Luffness New is an hour and a half's drive from Elie.
