Parts of famous links under water

CARNOUSTIE has seen little golf action on its world famous links over the last few weeks.

And this picture taken on Sunday shows the destruction that the recent Arctic conditions have done to parts of the Burnside Course.

Looking across the third and fourth fairways, across which the Barry Burn bends its way towards the sea, large pools of water have formed as a result of the thawing snow and heavy rain at the weekend.

The burn also appears to have burst its banks as debris from can be seen along the edges.
