Here is one of the most striking, first visual pieces of evidence of the plight of links golf courses in the age of anthropomorphic climate change.
Golf Digest reported that the beach is now very close to the golf course, with the North Sea now 70 metres closer to the golf course than it was 30 years ago.
Saturday’s weather left a “thick carpet” of sand on the second fairway of Montrose Links, rendering it practically unplayable at the weekend.
The fairway is not expected to return to normal until an industrial blower is brought in to clear the sand later this week. #montroselinks pic.twitter.com/yyyEc2irYd
