Elie Golf House Club

Elie, Scotland


Among a few gems like Crail and Leven in the east corner of Fife, Elie is a favorite of anyone lucky enough to discover it. Five-time Open champion Peter Thomson called Elie “the most enjoyable course I know,” and at just over 6,200 yards from the back tees, the James Braid layout is perfect for every level of player. One of the fun quirks of playing Elie is being called up by the starter after he has peered through the periscope, donated in the 1960s from the HMS Excalibur to give the starter a better view over the hill to confirm the group ahead is out of range for the next group to play away. The greens can be fiery and well-placed bunkers don’t make this former Open-qualifying course a pushover, and the views of the Fife countryside and the Firth of Forth add to the enjoyment of this historic links.
