Brough Of Bursay

 

BROUGH OF BURSAY

 

 “In far-off Orkney, and eighteen miles distant from Kirkwall, we read of golf on the links at Birsay, where, according to advices, ther is an excellent eighteen- hole course. The round literally bristles with hazards, while the putting greens, naturally somewhat rough at present, are capable of easy conversion into lawn-like smoothness. Accommodation in the district is, unfortunately, rather limited, but Sergeant Abel, the greenkeeper, is always ready to accommodate a " Foursome," and other lodgings can be had in the village.”  (GA 1888-89)
