The Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014 has been awarded to Crail Golfing Society for the number of complimentary reviews posted on its site by satisfied golfing visitors.
Only awarded to tourist facilities where visitors' reviews have been consistently very good, Certificates of Excellence are highly prized throughout the tourism world.
"Since joining Tripadvisor last year, nearly all the reviews of our facilities have been positive, giving us a 96% approval rating overall," said Eric Morris, Captain of the Society. "The award is a great boost to the efforts of our staff and members, but what is particularly pleasing to us is that the golfers have enjoyed not only our courses, but also our clubhouse and the welcome they have received.
"The latest review gave us the maximum five stars and, even at the end of November, the golfer was complimentary about the condition of the golf course, as well as paying tribute to the clubhouse facilities and catering."
Although it is a traditional members' golf club, Crail Golfing Society welcomes 9,000 visitors a year to play its two links courses. These are Balcomie Links, designed by Old Tom Morris and opened in 1895, and Craighead Links, designed by Gil Hanse and opened in 1998. The 228 year old Society has a world-wide membership of over 1600.
