A Chinese TV channel watched by around one billion people has focused on an Angus town on a tour of Scotland.
Travel TV China is one of the largest free to air TV companies in China and a film crew visited Carnoustie on Saturday to film a group playing at the Championship course.
As well as shooting film around the town, they interviewed Links board member Linda Gordon and head professional Colin Sinclair.
Dave Valentine of Valentine International, who has already co-produced several films for China, arranged for them to learn more about the area and what Carnoustie Country has to offer.
Mr Valentine, who also owns Simpsons of Carnoustie, said he believes Chinese golf tourists will become as lucrative to Angus as north Americans were in the last century.
He said: “Chinese golfers, who spend at least five to 10 times more than any other visitor, are fascinated by our heritage and Travel TV is interested in more than just golf.
“So their film will also focus on the Simpsons story as well as about the many other golfers from Carnoustie who helped to develop the modern game of golf in the UK and the US during the early 20th Century.
“We have a chance to work together locally to tell our heritage story and focus not just on the many fabulous and well maintained courses but promote the unique history of our courses, which are of great fascination to the growing numbers of Chinese golfers.”
Meanwhile, another TV crew from The Golf Channel, which has film rights for all four majors, visited the Edzell course on Friday.
