Hundreds of "lost" Scottish golf courses have been recorded as part of a new project.

More than 250 courses, including one at Leverndale Hospital in Crookston, Glasgow, have disappeared over the last century because they have relocated, been forced to close or were redesigned.

They include military golf courses, private courses attached to country houses and those connected to hotels and asylums.

The Leverndale course was constructed as a recreation facility for staff and patients.

Most of it is now waste ground, while the eastern section of the course has vanished under a housing development.

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland has recorded 250 of the courses as part of a project to establish a comprehensive database of Scotland's landscape.

It has also recently been taking high-quality digital aerial photos of more than 500 current active courses on the Scottish mainland, including Gleneagles, host to the 2014 Ryder Cup.

The photos can now be viewed online - on the Britain from Above website and on Canmore, the national database on the built environment of Scotland - alongside other records such as old photographs, original designs for courses and club houses, and recent photographs of a number of significant buildings connected to the sport in Scotland.
