Experts said the Trump Turnberry golf course in Ayr, UK, owned by former US president Donald Trump, is at risk of being submerged in the next two decades.
They warned hundreds of homes along the Ayrshire coast could also disappear if environmental change continues on its present trajectory.
The non-profit Climate Central made projections for 2040, illustrating areas that would be submerged, taking into account average flood levels and expected sea level rises.
Turnberry golf course was also identified as at risk as well as Royal Troon, Prestwick, Turnberry and Girvan’s municipal course.
Troon town center and harbor, Newton, Ayr Port, Greenan Castle, part of the A77 and Stair Park were also said to be at risk.
Climate Central said the situation could get worse as they do not account for the impact of erosion, frequency and intensity of storms, inland flooding and rainfall.
Stephen Anthony, secretary for Royal Troon golf course, said the historic club had been making ‘good progress’ towards addressing the threat.
He said: “We are well aware of this data and further to the work that was undertaken a number of years ago to protect the coastline we have been monitoring changes every couple of years.
“We are now at the stage of having discussions with the relevant bodies and agreeing on a plan to further protect the golf course in the years to come.”
A spokesperson for South Ayrshire Council said: “We continue to work hard to reduce emissions and adapt to our changing climate, including rising sea levels.
“Our Sustainable Development and Climate Change Strategy focuses on these issues and involves services from across the council.
“We are working to ensure we have the correct infrastructure in place, so that our roads, bridges, housing and other buildings can cope with changing weather patterns.”
