Scotland's Lost Golf Courses

The Royal Commission for the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) has launched a new page entitled Scotland's Lost Golf Courses - it can be accessed at and contains links to images of courses across the country, as well as entries in the Canmore catalogue.

Personally speaking I think of golf as a good walk ruined (my aunt used to be mad about it back in Belfast!), but I suspect I am in a minority. There are lots of great images included though from one of our nation's most prolific and historic sports - well worth a look.

Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks
