Snow Turns Scottish Golf Courses Into Winter Wonderland

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 09 Feb 2021 | Comments


Wintry conditions have struck the United Kingdom in recent days, bringing low temperatures and significant snowfall, but the picturesque impact of this icy blast is perhaps best showcased in Scotland, where golf courses have gratefully remained open in recent months in the face of restrictions to combat the pandemic.

However, despite that, it's fair to say that the ancient game is temporarily on hold in the Home of Golf!

But while drives and irons aren't being struck at the moment, it's given the opportunity for memorable shots of another kind - namely snow photos.

St Andrews is always a picture, but especially today, as demonstrated by this spectacular collage from The R&A.

The Highlands is accustomed to cold weather, but the magnificent Castle Stuart has rarely looked prettier.

Dumbarnie Links in Fife has been an acclaimed new addition to the golf offering in Scotland, experiencing its first major snowfall since opening last year!

Historic Crail is another delightful spot in the East Neuk, looking especially splendid today.

Cruden Bay is a real favourite with visiting golfers and is undoubtedly photogenic, even with the snow!

Moray is a proper, classic layout, and its rugged charms have been illuminated by these conditions.

Legendary venue, Royal Dornoch has a grandeur that the snow cannot diminish.

Carnoustie is tough in any conditions, but there's no play with the snow today, as captured by Craig Boath.

Gullane is one of the great destinations on Scotland's Golf Coast - and it looks very special, indeed.

Finally, what about Pitlochry in Perthshire, one of the most scenic courses you could ever hope to play.


So, there you have it, there has been golf played in Scotland this winter, but not at the moment! But when the images created are so striking, it's hard to complain too much. 

If you have any snaps taken at a course in the snow - then we'd love to see them!
