Sir Sean Connery set to have ashes scattered on Scots golf course


Sir Sean Connery is set to make one final appearance on a Scottish golf course when his ashes are scattered on his favourite links.

His widow, Micheline Roquebrune, 91, didn’t say which course has been chosen but the ceremony may be at St Andrews’ famous Old Course as Sean was a member of the prestigious Royal and Ancient Golf Club.

Speaking from her home in the Bahamas, she said: “He was at his happiest on a golf course so as soon as it’s possible to travel, we will come to Scotland as a family and bring Sean’s ashes. I hope to scatter them on a golf course in Scotland as he always loved playing there.”



The former James Bond actor Sir Sean Connery was well known for his love of golf.

The Edinburgh-born actor, who died in October aged 90, first learned to play golf for his role as secret agent James Bond in 1964 movie Goldfinger.

French-Moroccan painter Micheline, who first met Sean at a golf event in 1970 and became his second wife, said the first Christmas without him had been “difficult”.

She added: “He’s always in my thoughts and I miss him enormously.”
