A huge question mark hangs over six municipal golf courses in Glasgow after the city council carried out a public consultation into their future.
The worst-case scenario could see the 18-hole Littlehill, Lethamhill and Linn Park layouts, as well as three nine-hole courses - Knightswood, Ruchill and Alexandra Park - closed as a result of poor footfall and escalating costs.
Whilst sympathetic to the council's position, closing these courses would have a hugely detrimental effect on golf participation in the city and could potentially set a worrying precedent.
For many people, not least children, these municipal courses provide a vital pathway into the game.
Affordable, accessible and local, these layouts may never host a tour event - but that's not their purpose. So long as they provide an opportunity for people to play the game and live active, healthy lives, they will remain critical to the long-term health of the game here in the sport's home country.
