Rating N/A

Elie Sports Club Golf Course has a softly undulating landscape with views overlooking the Firth of Forth. It is situated on prime links turf that stays in excellent condition the entire year. At 2,080 yards the nine-hole layout is by no means long but what it lacks in length it makes up for in the variety of shot-making abilities that it requires. The golf course begins with its longest hole, a 340-yard par 3 that is a great driving hole. The rest of the holes are short but deceptively easy, especially the par-4 eighth. This 202-yard hole features severe rough that demands accuracy. The golf course is part of the Elie Sports Club, which also features tennis courts and a lawn bowling green.

Great fun!

Perfect wee course for a fun game of golf that caters for beginners.

Straight forward greens allow for high handicappers to roll in some snakey putts!

Certainly a good place to enjoy the game without the pressure of making mistakes.

Even the worst of golfers in our group came off the course feeling like Colin Montgomery!

Misleading Description and Photos

This is a lovely little 9 hole course but the description and photos of the Baird course on the Golf Now website are completely misleading, it is not a seaside course and there are absolutely no sea views from the course!
