Starters box demolished


THE FAMOUS starters box at Carnoustie which was built for the 1999 Open Championship has now been demolished.

The building has been replaced by the multi-million pound Carnoustie Golf Centre which was officially opened earlier this year by former Women’s Open champion and Carnoustie Country ambassador Catriona Matthew.

Work started on removing the starters box last Tuesday and the work was completed on Wednesday after the site was cleared.

Carnoustie Golf Links now have plans for the ground where the box was situated with work beginning in October after the peak golfing season ends.
