A unique initiative bringing together four of Scotland’s finest and most historic golf clubs is offering outstanding rates for visitors for the remainder of the summer.

Links with History brings together four golfing gems in the Kingdom of Fife: Scotscraig, Lundin, Ladybank and Crail. The five courses are among the most historic and popular in the country and are located a short distance away from St Andrews, the home of golf.

Throughout the month of August golfers can book a fourball at all four venues for half price and save more than £100 per person.

As the summer draws to a close in September, golfers can take advantage of a special twilight rate to book tee times after 1.30pm for £120 for a fourball when a minimum of two courses are booked.

Speaking on behalf of Links with History, Barrie Liddle, Managing Secretary at Scotscraig Golf Club, said: “We are reaching the height of the summer in the busy golfing season and we wanted to run these special offers to give visiting golfers a little added incentive to book tee times with Links with History.

“The courses are in excellent condition and all offer a unique challenge combining traditional Scottish links with heathland golf.  We know many golfing visitors from overseas relish playing links golf and golfers from other parts of Scotland and the UK look out for good deals so these offers should cater for everyone.”

The Links with History golf clubs enjoy illustrious histories with three of them having served as qualifying venues for the Open Championship. Crail Golfing Society is the seventh oldest golf club in the world, dating back to 1786, and Scotscraig Golf Club is the 13th oldest club in the world.

The courses offer a mix of challenging links golf at the Balcomie and Craighead courses at Crail and Lundin, a testing combination of links and heathland golf at Scotscraig and a beautiful but demanding tree-lined heathland layout at Ladybank.

The Links with HistoryGolfPass enables golfers to book two, three or four rounds of golf. The booking can be made either by phone, email or an online booking form on the Links with History website. Payment is made by cheque or by credit card and no money is requested until the booking has been confirmed.
