The Watchtower:

Reached by boat only this links style golf course is surrounded on 3 sides by rugged often treacherous terrain before the cliff faces rise up way above the uneven fairways giving a spectacular backdrop to many of the holes.
Smaller outcrops of rock make for some interesting & beautiful green side views whilst much of the routing offers ocean vistas stretching for miles to the horizon. 
Constructed circa 1940 World War 2 watchtowers sprung up all along the English Scottish eastern coastline as defensive early warning posts. One such structure overlooks the golf course here lending its location to the title.
