Here are some of the UK golf courses currently under water due to the extreme wet weather that his hit much of Britain in recent weeks.

Several golf courses have flooded and are unplayable at the moment.

One of the courses at Yeovil Golf Club is covered by surface water, for example. The Newton course borders the River Yeo on its northern and western boundaries.

In Aberdeen, Paul Lawrie’s own golf facility has flooded.

Lawrie purchased the facility next to the River Dee two-and-a-half years ago as a base for his golf foundation, and has invested heavily in the nine-hole course, covered driving range and short game area, but is now facing a major clean-up operation once the water levels recede.

“Regrettably the extreme weather has caused extensive damage to the golf centre, main building and driving range,” read a statement on the golf centre’s social media page while images of wrecked bays and submerged greens were posted online to illustrate the general chaos.

The golf centre originally flooded on December 31. Lawrie said: “The centre flooded quite badly which put a bit of a dampener on things. There’s not much you can do but knuckle down, get it repaired and get it open again as soon as we can.”

On the other side of the river, Deeside Golf Club, managed by former GCMA Manager of the Year Debbie Pern, was flooded by water levels that were “the highest they’ve seen it” while courses at Peterculter and Turriff have also been badly affected.

Many courses in northern England are also currently closed due to flooding.
