This might actually be the scariest entrance drive in golf

By Geoff Shackelford

As the Scottish Open kicks off this week at Royal Aberdeen, you'll hear mentions of the abutting Murcar Links. Because minus tournament paraphenalia, an unsuspecting golfer could walk right off of Royal Aberdeen's 9th green, tee off onto Murcar and not have a clue they've left Royal Aberdeen. 

But you'll undoubtedly see some Tweets regarding this excellent links and its, well, not so excellent entrance drive. As a connoisseur of entry ways to golf courses, I love to see how the build-up for an arrival is played by courses around the world. Murcar's may just be the most memorable. And frightening.
