You will want to get to the 19th though, the terrific Smoke Room just off to the right once you enter the attractive Golf House, one of the best rooms of its type in Scotland with its collection of classic club memorabilia. On the way to the 19th hole at the Golf House Club, Elie are some of the most scenic and fun golf holes you will ever play, such as the short par-4 10th, completely blind, easily driveable but perhaps too much so, as it is common to overclub and end up in the sea behind the green!
