Credit:  The Press and Journal | 12 Jul 2014 | ~~

A wind turbine which towers over the links at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club has been switched off as some of the greatest golfers in the world play in its shadows.

Organisers of the European Tour and the club requested that the device, belonging to energy firm Rubberatkins, should be powered down during the course of the tournament.

There had been concerns that noise and shadow might affect play.

A spokesman for the European Tour said: “During the planning meetings we held at the golf club, the issue of the wind turbine came up as a general point.

“We both agreed we would ask the company if it wouldn’t mind to turn it off during the week, because of potential noise and shadows. The company said there was absolutely not a problem is doing so.”
