When this potato farm and once hunting ground for the Pictish kings, set on a rugged cliffline three miles to the east of St Andrews, was purchased, it was flat, featureless and without character. What stands today, less than a decade on, is anything but.

Proof, if needed, is the fact that I took these photos with a cheap Canon EOS 550D with a kit lens and no prior photography knowledge. These shots are the ones that got me into taking photos of golf courses and I cannot wait to return with my new-found skills and equipment.
