Coastal defences - An old
First World War pill-box on the seaward side of the 12th fairway was pressed back into action during
WW2. Weapon pits were dug overlooking the Eil Burn, above the 13th green and on the seaward side of
the 14th fairway . Following the end of hostilities Italian POW's were employed to remove the miles
of barbed-wire which they buried under the hillside north of the 14th tee.
