Four sets of personalised golf clubs have been stolen from tourists in the home of golf.
The Canadians left the clubs in their unlocked Hyundai car outside a bed and breakfast in Murray Place, St Andrews on Sunday night.
When they returned to the vehicle the next morning, the clubs were gone.
Fife Constabulary are warning people to look after their equipment while they search for the thieves.
Detective Constable Kevin Payne said: "These clubs are quite distinctive, particularly the set which are in a bag emblazoned with the Canadian Maple. I would appeal to anyone visiting St Andrews to ensure they keep their clubs out of sight and locked away. As the golf season is getting into full swing there are more and more golfers and sets of clubs in the town and, while such thefts are rare, it is important that people do take care of their valuables.”
Police are also asking anyone who is offered second-hand clubs to buy to ask about where they come from.
DC Payne said: "I would ask that anyone who witnessed these golf clubs being taken from a Hyundai i800 motor car parked in Murray Place, St Andrews between 6pm on Sunday and 7am on Monday morning to contact us.
"I would also appeal to anyone who is offered second-hand clubs for sale and is unsure of their provenance to contact us. These clubs are quite distinctive and personalised and we are contacting local golf clubs and other outlets with the details."
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact officers on 0845 600 5702 or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Makers of the stolen clubs include Ping, TaylorMade, Cleveland and Adams.
