Played by NCG: Crail
Where is Crail?
5 miles West of St Andrews, Fife.
What to expect
Stunning sea vistas, high winds and a short challenging end to your round.
My best bit
A first true links experience, the combination of brutal crosswinds and fast greens. This was a baptism of fire in the truest sense.
Watch out for
The beach. The 4th and 5th dogleg right over the edge of the Fife coastline, rewarding those who take a risk with major distance gains. Club up and watch your slice. The beach is out-of-bounds.
When I go back…
I’ll take enough balls to cover the interest accrued by the Scottish kelp.
