ened I don't know, I was hoping you knew for sure ;o}

Looks like an elevated tee with majestic views of the surrounding countryside. I get the impression that we are looking at a couple of 'serious' golfers with their own personal caddies and a couple of referees to apply the complex rules of competitive golf.

Wild guesses:- Cathkin Braes Golf Course or Auchinairn Golf Club, Springburn - both on the outskirts of Glasgow. [I hit 109 strokes for the 18 holes at Auchinairn ... one of the strokes was extra-ordinally superb.]

Does the ground look chalky? could it be in the SE?

  Aitchbee 22:06 03 Aug 2014

A good approach shot would clinch it.

Woolwell not Sandwich. I have been there a few times. Apart from the dunes it is far too flat around there.

I knew you were very tenacious, but to go on a physical recce is above and beyond anything I can do!!!

Jock1e that prominent chimney and the end elevation and roofline definitely looks the same! I think you have cracked this one also.

Let us all know the location so that I can scan green-tick this one too.

Jock1e - A magnificent 'well done' on solving the 2 golfin' longshots, I am quite condident that you will achieve the quickest 'Grand Slam' this year and pipping that young Irish whippersapper Rory McIlroy, but it will be a close call ;o)
