Royal Burgess Golfing Society of Edinburgh

0 reviews


The Royal Burgess Golfing Society of Edinburgh traces its origins back into the eighteenth century with the first publicly recorded explicit reference to its existence in 1735 appearing in a nineteenth century edition of the Edinburgh Almanac. It is unlikely that the worthy founder members – merchants, writers, bankers and others – realised that they were forging such a rich and colourful part of the history of Edinburgh and the game of golf. As they played their golf on Bruntsfield Links and drank their ale in the Golf Tavern, they lived for the enjoyment of the moment and were somewhat unconcerned about recording their activities for posterity.
