    History : 07

    Scotscraig.Golf.Club.was.founded.in.1817.by.some.members.of.the..St.Andrews.Society.of.Golfers..(later.to.become.the.Royal.and..Ancient.Golf.Club).who.wished.to..play.more.golf.than.the.Societys.occasional.meetings.afforded.them..

    One.of.these.members.was.William.Dalgleish.of.Scotscraig,.a.section.of.whose.lands.was.the.Garpit,.part.of.which.included.a.racecourse.

    Within.the.area.of.the.racecourse.golf.was.already.played.over.six.holes,.but.no.record.exists.to.show.how.long.this.had.been.done.

    The.original.minute.of.the.Club.states..A.party.of.gentlemen.having.met.in.August.1817,.it.was.agreed.upon.that.a.club.under.the.name.of.Scotscraig.Golf.Club.should.be.established;.that.there.should.be.two.meetings.annually,.the.one.in.Spring.and.the.other.in.Autumn.and.that.at.the.latter,.a.golf.

    medal.should.be.played.for...A.gold.medal.having.been.procured,.it.was.appointed.to.be.played.for.on.Tuesday,.September.29,.1818.

    William.Dalgleish.was.appointed.as.the.first.Captain.of.Scotscraig.Golf.Club.at.this.meeting.

    Competitions.of.the.new.Scotscraig.Golf.Club.were.decided.over.three.rounds.of.the.Garpits.six.holes..Captain.Playfair,.later.to.become.Sir.Hugh.Lyon.Playfair,.Captain.of.the.Royal.and.Ancient.and.Provost.of.St.Andrews,.won.the.first.competition.for.the.Gold.Medal.with.105.strokes.over.three.rounds.of.the.links.

    The.dress.code.for.players.at.this.time.was.a.red.jacket.trimmed.with.a.green.velvet.collar..It.was.also.agreed.that.the.golfing.uniform.should.include.a.buff-coloured.uniform.vest.with.small.buttons.similar.to.that.worn.on.the.jacket,.and.it.was.further.approved.

    History : 09

    that.the.penalty.for.players.not.suitably.attired.was.two.bottles.of.port.

    In.1818,.the.Club.officially.appointed.two.of.the.best.known.names.in.golf:.Hugh.Philip.(official.club.maker).and.David.Robertson.(official.feathery.ball.maker)..Davids.son.Allan.became.the.worlds.first.ever.golf.professional.

    In.1835,.the.Club.went.into.abeyance.for.52.years.following.the.Garpit.links.having.been.ploughed.up..On.the.5th.May.1887,.Admiral.Maitland.Dougall.presided.over.a.meeting.in.Templars.Hall.in.Tayport.to.re-constitute.Scotscraig.Golf.Club,.and.was.appointed.Captain.of.the.Club.

    In.April.1888.the.new.course.was.officially.opened,.with.members.being.permitted.to.use.the.nearby.fever.hospital.as.a.locker.room.and.meeting.place..The.layout.of.the.course.was.altered.in.time.for.the.1893.medal,.having.been.extended.to.nine.holes.

    The.last.decade.of.the.19th.century.saw.a.steady.increase.in.membership.

    of.the.Club,.and.was.met.with.a.growing.need.for.a.proper.clubhouse..At.about.this.time,.Tom.Morris.was.invited.from.St.Andrews.to.advise.on.the.amount.of.ground.required.to.extend.the.course.to.18.holes.

    In.the.autumn.of.1896,.it.is.minuted.that.the.elegant.and.picturesque.clubhouse.just.erected.on.Tayport.Links.for.the.Scotscraig.Golf.Club,.was.formally.opened.by.Sir.John.Leng.MP.

    The.total.cost.of.building.the.clubhouse.was.699.15s.10d,.plus.101.7s.7d.for.furnishings.

    In.September.1909,.Mr.A.H..Robertson.is.recorded.as.having.achieved.the.earliest.hole.in.one.at.Scotscraig,.and.also.in.this.year.ladies.were.permitted.to.play.as.limited.members..It.took.nearly.100.years.for.ladies.to.become.full.members..This.was.approved.by.the.members.at.the.Annual.General.Meeting.in.1997.

    In.1923,.the.course.was.redesigned.with.the.assistance.of.James.Braid,.

    one.of.the.Triumvirate..The.course.still.retains.many.of.Braids.traditional.architectural.features,.namely.large.rolling.greens.and.well-positioned.bunkers..Scotscraig.today.is.largely.unchanged,.and.presents.a.fair.but.serious.challenge.to.all.golfers.

    The.Club.has.been.honoured.over.the.years.by.the.successes.of.its.members,.exemplified.by.A.F.Macfie,.winner.of.the.first.British.Amateur.Championship.at.Hoylake.in.1885;.J.Gordon.Simpson,.a.Scottish.internationalist;.and.more.recently.by.John.Ferguson,.who.won.the.British.Boys.Championship.in.1956.

    In.more.recent.years,.the.course.has.been.used.for.Final.Qualifying.for.The.Open.when.played.over.the.Old.Course.at.St.Andrews,.in.1984,.1990,.1995,.2000,.2005.and.2010.

    The.history.of.Scotscraig.Golf.Club.is.displayed.in.a.permanent.exhibition.within.the.clubhouse.covering.the.period.from.1817.to.the.present.date,.and.visitors.and.guests.are.most.

    The Course : 11

    Scotscraig.is.conveniently.located.only.15.minutes.from.the.famous.Old.Course,.St.Andrews.and.since.1984.has.hosted.the.Final.Open.Qualifying.when.The.Open.has.been.played.over.St.Andrews,.most.recently.in.2010.

    Ian.Baker-Finch,.Brian.Barnes,.Justin.Rose,.Mark.Mouland,.Duffy.Waldorf.and.Sam.Torrance.are.only.a.few.of.the.famous.players.to.have.graced.this.renowned.classic.Fife.course.

    Although.the.course.doesnt.sit.exactly.adjacent.to.the.coastline,.there.are.a.few.sea.breezes.to.consider.when.playing.this.links-heathland.mixture.

    The.most.memorable.hole.is.the..par-4.4th,.only.366.yards,.but.with.the.fairway.well.protected.on.the.left.by.large.revetted.bunkers.and.a.heathery.terrain.awaiting.wayward.shots.to.the.right,.only.well.positioned.shots.will.be.able.to.attack.this.small.plateau.green.

    One.lengthy.challenge.is.the.par-5.14th,.523.yards,.and.a.test.that.calls.for.precise.positioning.in.order.to.reach.the.well-guarded.green..Players.of.all.levels.will.find.a.days.golf.at.Scotscraig.an.enjoyable.challenge.and.a.golfing.experience.they.will.never.forget.
