Tantallon Golf Club Book launched 2013

The West Links & Tantallon Golf Club 1853 - 2013. The romance of links golf at North Berwick

Tantallon Golf Club has produced a book telling the story of 165 years of Golf over The West Links, researched and written by past-captain Douglas Seaton.

This fascinating book plots the development of the Club from 1853 and the involvement of many of its members and past-captains in the expansion of the town of North Berwick. It recounts the halcyon days of Gairdner, Laidley and Maxwell, the team matches against Royal Liverpool which were the forerunners of the modern Home Internationals, and our involvement in the founding of The Amateur Championship.
We expand on our Club’s ‘Sons’ who left these shores to ply their golfing skills overseas and their subsequent influence on course design worldwide, the advent of the professional era with money matches on The West Links and our record 21 County Cup wins

This book is commended to you as ‘A wonderful book telling not only the 160 year story of Tantallon Golf Club but also the development of golf on The West Links ‘

The book can be purchased for £15. Postage and packing will be £3.
