Sandcastles in your bunkers

North Berwick’s tourist problem

Sandcastles in your bunkersNorth Berwick Golf Club has revealed that it has had tourists walking onto its course and building sandcastles in its bunkers!

The club has also had families picnicking on its greens and surfers stripping off in the rough.

According to The Scotsman members “have been left shocked at the invasive behaviour of tourists visiting the popular seaside town.”

The club has been forced to put up extra signage to deter the public from invading the course with their extraordinary behaviour.

The club’s managing secretary, Christopher Spencer, said: “We are fortunate to be right on the coast and have terrific views but with that comes a problem with public access.

“We’ve had people come along and picnic on the greens and families with kids playing in bunkers and building sandcastles. Surfers have been getting naked and changed by the second fairway.

“We have even had people trying to pitch up camping right in front of the 13th green.”

He also said that the club professional was forced to ask one family to move from a bunker on the course but was called a “nasty man” who was coming to stop their child’s fun.
