“beautiful setting for golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

The Balcomie course is wonderful with great sea scape views and challenging holes. The staff is welcoming and friendly. A nice (not overpriced daily specials) lunch in the clubhouse has a beautiful view of the last 5 holes and the coastal walking trail, along with nice restroom and changing area. The pro shop has pricey apparel with limited selection. Call ahead for tee times.
