Montrose Golf Links

niallA walk around the Medal Course with the Course Manager Niall Scott made concerns about changes in the dunes very clear. Tending the greens that are slowly shrinking mean that greenkeepers experience daily the changes to the Golf Links. We had a conversation about playing on Links Courses and the influence of wind and weather on the game and of wear and tear on dunes. The erosion around the tees with rock armour, the 6th tee in particular, has accelerated in the last couple of years.
This photograph shows Niall right on the edge of the dune.
