PICS - Heavy snowfall causes golf course white-out across Scotland

Gleneagles

It’s not quite in the same league as last year’s ‘Beast From The East’ but heavy snowfall has blanketed large chunks of the country this morning, forcing several clubs to shut for the day.

Gleneagles, host venue for this year’s Solheim Cup, is amongst those affected, with forecasters warning that more of the white stuff will make its way down the west coast of Scotland as the day goes on.

The wintry conditions have even caused disruption in the north of England, with Stockport Golf Club – the host venue for Callaway Kings of Distance 2018 – forced into cancelling it ladies’ competition today.

Bentham Golf Club in North Yorkshire is another to have fallen victim to the conditions today.
