Masters take to the high-seas in search of golf and the elusive sea eagle

Masters members recently embarked on a voyage of discovery, in search of the perfect ‘hidden gem’ golf course on Scotland’s rugged West Coast. The expedition was also an opportunity for one member of the group to fulfill his lifetime ambition of sighting a sea eagle in flight. One of the group’s ambitions was fulfilled!
