Gopher Watch Competition – April 2022

Sandy was in his happy place last time out, on the first tee of the historic Lundin Links course in Fife, Scotland.

Though the club was founded in 1868, golf has been played on those links for much longer: Lundin and the adjacent Leven course were originally one, but the increasing popularity of golf forced the two to separate, and some additional holes to be constructed to give both clubs eighteen holes.

It was a local who was first out of the hat, so congratulations to Martin Bonnar of nearby Ladybank GC. A prized GCA shirt is on the way.

This month, Sandy is quite a long way away from Scotland! And if Lundin/Leven is one of the first few places where golf was played, this venue is famous for being the last place where something happened. No more clues!
