Wow - for a links course to be under water like that there must have been some rain
"I think Carnoustie might have some flooding issues with Barry Burn on occasion."I have seen the same type of flooding on the holes that cross the burn on the Struie course at Dornoch. Usually it occurs at high tide during or after a heavy rainfall. The water from the burn that would normally drain into the ocean is pushed back up the burn by the incoming high tide.
Not an entirely unusual problem particularly at equinox time. A higher than normal incoming tide blocking greater than usual rainfall from exiting the land via the stream/burn. Powerful thing nature and if unlucky and/or unprepared sandy features etc wash away quickly.Atb
