The Lady is having a special birthday this year!
When asked what she wanted for her birthday, the answer was clear: “Gems, of course and lots of them!!” But the Sporting Laird is ‘delivering’ them to her with a twist befitting The Lady’s sense of fun and adventure.
They are coming to her as the ‘hidden gems’ of Scotland -- one round at a time! By the end of her year she should have scoured the Lowlands, Highlands, heaths and links in her quest to find Scotland’s most precious and hidden gems in the beautiful game of golf. Is there a better way to treat a lady, especially the ‘Lady of the Links?!”
Track her progress and find out where she's been, where she is and where she's going. If you would like to join her as she ‘acquires’ her gems, just let her know. She’s delighted to have company on her journey!

Cruden Bay has quite a history: its links land has been the site of Viking battles, burial sites and the old Railway lines. Whilst in the distance, the ruins of New Slains Castle...
