Sir Sean's widow, Micheline Roquebrune, confirmed the news about his ashes to Daily Record (Sunday Mail) but 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 Edinburgh-born actor, who died on 31 October 2020 aged 90, brought his passion for golf to his role as James Bond in 1964 movie Goldfinger directed by another passionate golfer, Guy Hamilton.

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.”

Sean Connery headlined a Celebrity Golf Match at Gleneagles in Scotland in August 1976:
