CONGRATULATIONS FORTROSE & ROSEMARKIE G.C.! YOU ARE 100 YEARS OLDER THAN YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE!

This information is released by Scottish Golf History to 23 contacts in the Scottish and golf press.

Last month, in the space of 40 minutes, two previously unknown newspaper notices for Earlsferry Golf Society in 1787 and Fortrose Golf Society in 1793 were discovered.

They were found in one search of the British Newspaper Archive at the National Library of Scotland in the Caledonian Mercury which published three times a week from 1720 to 1867. They bring to 18 the number of golf clubs which have a continuous or non-continuous history dating back to the 18th century.

However, not only are these two clubs now among the oldest, but their courses probably are as well. Virtually all the oldest golf clubs moved from their original golfing grounds because of congestion or to be able to create 18-hole courses in mid/late 19th century.

Fortrose Golf Society

The Fortrose Golf Society citation is a notice of the 'general annual meeting' to be held at Williamson's Tavern with dinner at 4pm on Wednesday 3rd July 1793. It is not new news that golf was played at Fortrose at this time but this date is 95 years before the Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club was instituted.

More importantly it makes it more probable that the area of play on Chanonry Ness at Fortrose extended to where today’s golfers play, over the caravan park and possibly the 6th, 7th, 8th and part of 9th holes. If so that could put Fortrose in a select group of courses played before 1800. Historical map references from that time have been accessed to show where golf would have been played and this leads down from the caravan site in Fortrose to the 6th hole. A copy of the paper from this time has been sent to me so I will get this framed and put on display in the bar/dining room area when possible.

http://www.scottishgolfhistory.org/oldest-golf-clubs-societies/1793-fortrose-golf-society-1888/

http://www.scottishgolfhistory.org/oldest-golf-sites/1702-fortrose-/

The location of Williamson’s Tavern has yet to be established and any intelligence would be much appreciated.

It was always likely that there were more old golf clubs to be re-discovered and with newly digitised newspapers and other historical material, more finds were to be expected. What was totally unexpected was that two would be found in such a short space of time, both in the same search from one newspaper, the Caledonian Mercury.

Earlsferry Golf Society The announcement for Earlsferry Golf Society appeared on 26th April 1787 calling all the members to a dinner on Tuesday 1st May 1787.

Earlsferry is today better known as Elie and it is one of only three golf courses still played which goes back to 18th century or even the 16th century (the other two being the old courses at St Andrews and Musselburgh). The existence of the Earlsferry Golf Society means that formal golf club activity there also goes back to 1787 at least. This find has enabled a fuller history of the club to be written.

Friendship Cup Leaderboard at Gleneagles - 24 September 2014

The finest young golfing talent from Europe and the United States played for the Friendship Bowl at Gleneagles on Wednesday, 24 September 2014 following the conclusion of the 2014 Junior Ryder Cup at Blairgowrie.

The 12 European juniors and their 12 American counterparts were split into six teams of two girls and two boys - one each from Europe and the United States. Each team was named after the finalists at the recent Scottish Golf Awards Ceremony and included Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club where we won the Junior Club of the Year Award in February of this year.

The Friendship Bowl was a chance to showcase the combined skills from both teams on the setting of The 2014 Ryder Cup, and it also gave the young players the opportunity to meet their golfing idols.

The Junior Ryder Cup has been the platform from which a number of successful professional careers have been built and began in 1997, two years after the idea came about at an exhibition match featuring European youngsters against a team from Central New York PGA Section.

Sergio Garcia was part of the 1995 team, Rory McIlroy played in the 2004 team and Suzann Pettersen participated in the 1997 and 1999 teams before becoming Norway’s top female golfer and playing in five Solheim Cups.

Other notable names to have played in a Junior Ryder Cup are Englishman Oliver Fisher, Italian Matteo Manassero and American Hunter Mahan, who was part of the victorious United States Team in 2008.

The contest celebrates the progress and hard work taking place at the grass roots level of golf, which helps talented young players develop into national team amateurs and some even to The Ryder Cup itself, as Garcia, McIlroy and Mahan have done.

As you can see from the picture/link at the top, Fortrose & Rosemarkie finished a creditable five under par over 9 holes. Alistair Tait and Malcolm McArthur (coaches), Ben Patience and Mac Campbell (Juniors) walked the fairways with their team at Gleneagles that very day (pictures below). Two of our other Junior ClubGolf members in Coinneach MacLeod and Rognvald MacLeod (also on a link at the top) were also in attendance and had a great day.

Fortrose & Rosemarkie win 20-Hole Northern Counties Cup Final - September 2014

Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club beat Inverness Golf Club at the 20th hole in the final of the Northern Counties Cup men's double club foursomes tournament at Tain Golf Club on Saturday. Fortrose's Allan Cameron and his nephew Lewis Reid, the second couple, were six ahead of Inverness's Bryan Fotheringham and David Joel after nine holes but they were brought back to only four after 15 holes. At the same stage the Fortrose & Rosemarkie first pair, Mike MacDonald and Chris Gaittens, were three down to the Inverness first pair of John Forbes and David Sanderson (the same first pair when Inverness won at Tain in 2008).

When still four down Fotheringham and Joel surprisingly offered 8 foot putts for halves on the 16th green and it backfired when Fotheringham bunkered his tee shot to the 17th green to go five down and the 114 year old trophy looked lost in normal time however, Cameron went into the water hazard from the 18th tee. Although Reid played from it out it still took them four to reach the green and give a hole back to finish four up after 18.

With the Fortrose first pair also finding rough from the final tee, Inverness's Forbes and Joel also won the 18th hole to level the game at +4 and -4. Fotheringham and Joel had a chance to win the first extra hole but they missed their putt from 25 feet while Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club’s second pair of Cameron and Reid then had a chance to win the match but they missed from three feet after the first pair had halved in four after playing the 19th hole.

At the second extra hole, both the first pairings missed the green with their second shots. Mike MacDonald then pitched stiff from 30 feet away which left Inverness a tricky 6ft putt for a half, which they missed giving Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club the edge. After the Inverness second string of Fotheringham and Joel missed the green Reid hit his second shot to 15 feet, setting up the overall victory for Fortrose and Rosemarkie with a two putt par.

In the morning semi-finals, Nairn Dunbar, conquerors of title favourites Newmachar, winners of the trophy three times out of the previous four years, were beaten by Inverness by two holes. Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club proceeded to beat Tain Golf Club by four holes in the other semi-final. Fortrose and Rosemarkie won the Northern Counties Cup in 2002 and again in 2006. Allan Cameron was in the Inverness team that won six years ago at Tain. He has now moved his home club handicap back to his home village and as such plays for Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club.

Mike MacDonald is the Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club Secretary and a key player in his Club's last two Northern Counties Cup wins in 2002 at Tain and 2006 at Royal Aberdeen. The third win for Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club within 12 years has capped a fine year for the club. Just a week or so ago Mike MacDonald and the Match & Handicap Convener, John Jack won the Belhaven Best Captain's & Secretaries National Grand Final at Crail Golfing Society with better ball score of 64.

Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club on Fire to Capture Belhaven Title in the Captains & Secretaries Grand Final at Crail Golf Society - 9 September 2014.

Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club's pairing of Mike MacDonald and John Jack produced a superb better-ball score of 63 (9 under par) to storm to a four-shot victory in today’s Belhaven Best Captains & Secretaries Championship final at Crail’s Craighead Links.

MacDonald, the Club Secretary and Jack, the match and handicap convener, dovetailed to perfection as the Highland club took the title for the first time, finishing four shots clear of the Turnhouse duo of Douglas Sime and Lindsay Gordon, who combined for a net 67.

Strathaven took third place with a 68, edging out former champions Duddingston courtesy of the better inward half, on a glorious sunny and calm day in the East Neuk of Fife, with the speedy greens of the Craighead course proving a testing challenge for the field.

Scratch player MacDonald, playing in his fourth final, attributed his team’s success to consistency from both players throughout the round:

“We gelled really well out there today and it helped having a practice round yesterday to get to know the course. We were both in play on nearly every hole so we gave ourselves good chances, and I managed to knock in quite a few birdies.

“I’ve been to a few Captains and Secretaries finals so its nice to finally win one – it must be down to my partner John! We only just scraped through the regional final so probably weren’t expecting to win, but it’s great to be crowned champion of what is a great national event on a superb golf course.”

The win caps a fine year for Fortrose & Rosemarkie, who’s fantastic work in developing grass roots golf in their community earned them the title of RBS Junior Club of the Year at the Scottish Golf Awards back in February.

Belhaven’s Director of Sales, Graham Baird, said: “We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of the Belhaven Best Captains & Secretaries Championship through our SGU partnership. Golf clubs have been at the heart of the Belhaven Best success story and it’s great to support those who do so much hard work at club level by staging this championship.

“Congratulations to all 40 teams who reached the final from our hugely popular regional final series and well done to Fortrose & Rosemarkie who deservedly take the title of Scotland’s Best.”

Ross Singles win for Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club.

In a repeat of last years final Fortrose and Rosemarkie repeated their winning 3-2 scoreline of twelve months ago to hold onto the Highland Fabricators Cup in the Ross-shire Singles final at Alness Golf Club last Sunday.

Both clubs cruised through their morning semi final ties, the Tain quintet of their North District Champion Dougie Thorburn, Munro Ferries, Billy Ferries, Ross Mackenzie and Mike Sangster all won their games to oust Invergordon 5-0. The Fortrose first four of Andrew Brown, Chris Gaittens, Lewis Reid and Peter Cameron all won while senior player Robert Mackay went under to Strathpeffer's Philip Bannerman in their 4-1 result.

But Mackay was to be Fortrose & Rosemarkie's match winner in the closely fought final where the top players of each club praised the transformation brought to the Alness course by their new ex Australian green keeper Gary Urquhart whose excellent course condition was acknowledged by all.

In the final the cup holders began with Andrew Brown and Chris Gaittens both recording birdie twos on the second hole to take early leads over Dougie Thorburn and Munro Ferries respectively as Brown, after being brought back to level through nine holes, closed out the North Champion on the 17th hole where Thorburn lost a ball.

Gaittens held his one hole lead through ten holes before M Ferries got back to level with birdie on the 11th green. The tough fourteenth hole which takes its name from the Douglas Pool of the adjacent River Averon was won by Gaittens to restore his narrow one hole advantage and following two halved holes a birdie on the next par four, the 17th, secured the second point for Fortrose & Rosemarkie.

Billy Ferries got his first of many birdies on the second hole and was three ahead after five holes to complete his five and four demolition of Lewis Reid and post Tain's first point. The match result was brought level by Ross Mackenzie the hard way. He was three ahead of Fortrose & Rosemarkie's Peter Cameron with four holes to play, two of them to Cameron birdies that included one at the final hole, before MacKenzie emerged with the match levelling point at the 19th hole.

The final and deciding game involved the two oldest members of each team, Mike Sangster for Tain against Robert Mackay for Fortrose and Rosemarkie. Level after ten holes a Mackay birdie putt on the 11th green put him one in front and from a topped drive by Sangster at the next hole a two hole lead was held until the Fortrose senior ended the game with a birdie three on the penultimate hole to assure the cup returned to Fortrose and Rosemarkie for an eighth time, their first win arriving twenty years ago in 1994.

ALISTAIR TAIT WINS THE GOLF FOUNDATION’S ‘GALLACHER AWARD’

The Golf Foundation President’s Awards on Wednesday (21st of May) celebrated some of the “heroes of junior golf” who have given their time and enthusiasm to provide young people from all backgrounds and abilities with a start in the game.

Held in the perfect setting of Wentworth Club’s Ballroom, a packed audience from the world of golf heard the stories of nine award winners and their projects, featuring the volunteers, PGA Professionals, junior organisers, schoolteachers and local authority officers who all help to develop the golfers and leading players of the future.

Chairman of the Golf Foundation, Charles Harrison, gave special mention to the generosity of The European Tour and Wentworth Club for providing the stage, and also to one of the ceremony’s guests of honour, Ryder Cup player Nicolas Colsaerts, who kindly presented each of the awards on the day. Nicolas was one of the heroes on his Ryder Cup debut in 2012 as he and Lee Westwood beat Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker in the Friday fourballs, the Belgian star carding eight birdies and an eagle of his own in that match.

Charles Harrison said: “So many of us remember the wonderful effort of Nicolas at Medinah. We could wish for no better golfer to present our awards today as he and the rest of Europe’s Ryder Cup Team will have been a huge inspiration to a new generation of young golfers and also to all those who work in the sport.” Leading the ceremony, Golf Foundation Chief Executive Mike Round said: “Every year we organise this event so we can highlight the incredible work of the people at the grass roots who make it possible for children and young people to experience golf and the benefits it has to offer.

“There could not be a better time or place to do this – here at one of the most impressive golf venues in the country, which is also the home of The European Tour, one of our greatest supporters, and on the eve of the BMW PGA Championship itself.

“In the newspapers over the next few days, we will read about the incredible ability of the golfers taking part at Wentworth this week. It is however worth remembering that the efforts and achievements of our award winners are equally impressive, albeit in a different way. Without these dedicated, heroes of junior golf, many of golf’s star players would never find their game, and thousands of other young people would miss the chance to enjoy this great sport.” A number of golf’s biggest names were present to applaud the winners, many of whom are volunteers, and who all support the Foundation’s aim to make the game more accessible to children in schools, communities and golf clubs through its ‘HSBC Golf Roots’ programme.

THE ‘GALLACHER AWARD’

The Gallacher Award is for an exceptional volunteer and Alistair Tait at Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club wins the accolade. Supporting the coaching there since 2005, Alistair is now Coaching Coordinator of the junior section, seeing this rising from 94 to 131 in 2013.

Alistair secured funding to develop the practice facilities and set out a three-hole mini-course on the practice ground for the younger juniors. Coaching numbers in 2013 were exceptional with 80 children signing up after Easter and a total of nine trained coaches taking regular one-hour sessions.

Attention to detail is a key. Alistair purchased and fitted mirrors to the storage shed on the practice area as a teaching aid, and painted the three covered bays himself. The club’s reputation led to a visit from the French Golf Federation to experience its methods, and the club was the first without a PGA Pro to be awarded the status of a Scottish Golf Development Centre. Mike Round said: “Teams need leaders and Fortrose and Rosemarkie’s junior programme has one of the best.”

Allan Cameron and Ewan Forbes (Inverness) won the Black Isle Open Foursomes Championship (Sponsored by Munro & Noble) for 2014 with an excellent showing on what turned out to be one of the toughest weekends for scoring that we are likely to see. The pairing of Allan and Ewan topped the qualification process with two very decent gross scores of 78 ahead of Mike MacDonald (F & R) & Chris Gaittens (F & R). The third qualifiers were Steven Bassindale (F & R) & Gary Moore (F & R) followed by Neil McWilliam (Elgin) and Barry Cruickshank (Spey Bay). Allan and Ewan went on to beat Neil and Barry on the Sunday morning semi-final by the score of 7 & 5. Gary & Steven then beat Mike & Chris on the 20th hole to reach their first ever final in the scratch section.

In the final Allan and Ewan defeated Gary and Steven by 2 & 1 to win the trophy for the fifth time on what turned out to be a very wet and windy afternoon not to mention the driving wind in the morning semi-final matches.

In the Handicap Section, Lewis Patience (F & R) and Ryan Keith (F & R) retained their title after defeating Robbie MacKay and Andy Gray by 3 & 2 in the final. Lewis Patience first won this trophy when playing with his brother Sandy 31 years ago so that in itself is an amazing feat.

In the other semi-final Lewis and Ryan defeated Graham Godsman (F & R) and Eric Brown (Inverness) by 4 & 3.

RBS Junior Club of the Year - Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club.

Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club has been named the Country’s No.1 Club for young golfers after winning the 2013/14 RBS Junior Club of the Year at the 2014 Scottish Golf Awards - ClubGolfScotland.

Presented at the star-studded Hilton Glasgow event, the Black Isle Golf Club beat off stiff competition from Peebles, Prestonfield and Bathgate after a landmark 125th Anniversary year in which junior golf took centre stage.

Prestonfield coach Liz Taylor was the night's other big winner, picking up the hotly-contested RBS Volunteer of the year accolade for her dedication to developing junior golf at the Edinburgh venue.

Upon receiving the £1,500 first prize for return investment into the juniors at Fortrose & Rosemarkie, club secretary Mike MacDonald said: "I was totally unaware that we were going to win the award but to win it is just a fantastic achievement for the club.

"We've had a lot of recognition already and I think, on the back of this, we can take the club forward even more. For the coaches it means a lot as well because those are the guys that put the hard work in.

"Obviously, we had such a fantastic year last year with it being our 125th anniversary at the golf club. There was just so much going on but I think the enthusiasm of the coaches was the key thing that helped us to deliver everything we wanted to. They have given up so much of their time for the kids and our coaching is a massive thing for encouraging them to play.

"Being the 2014 RBS Junior Club of the Year will certainly help ClubGolf grow at our venue. We had 80 children taking part in ClubGolf coaching last year and we will do as much as we can to promote ourselves as the RBS Junior Club of the Year, which will hopefully encourage even more to come along in the future."

Over the course of 2013, the Highland club invested heavily in new practice facilities and coaching resources for their juniors and has experienced an increase in young members as a result, from 94 to 131, making it one of the busiest sections in the country.

Similar success was experienced at Prestonfield, where 2013/14 RBS Volunteer of the Year Liz Taylor oversaw the introduction of golf for the first time to over 100 children.

Having become the club's first ClubGolf Co-ordinator at the beginning of 2013, Liz has spearheaded the funding and construction of two brand new par-3 practice holes, delivered and organised coaching for a total of 124 children on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays and even began sessions for ladies interested in taking up the game.

Delighted to be named Scotland's top golfing volunteer and receive £500 for her club, Liz said: "Winning the RBS Volunteer of the year award means that all of the hard work and effort that you put in: i.e. the admin side of it and the organisation of the classes; getting all of the coaches ready; drawing up rotas; communicating with the parents and coaches, has paid off. I put in a lot of hours but the rewards are absolutely massive and it just means the world to me. I'm delighted.

"Having 74 children joining the club in 2013 is a massive achievement for us but the most important thing is making sure the kids keep coming back. That is what makes it special for us as coaches.

"We've heard that some of them keep their golf clubs under their beds and their membership cards under their pillows because they are just so excited about ClubGolf they can hardly sleep. Things like that make this the best job in the world."

Bruce Cook, Head of Group Sponsorship at RBS, was pleased to see Scotland's top junior club and volunteer rewarded for their dedication and congratulated this year's successful candidates on their achievements.

"The 2014 Scottish Golf Awards was another great event and RBS is very proud to sponsor the Volunteer and Junior Club of the Year awards. As with our ClubGolf partnership, we think it is important to recognise the grass roots efforts that ultimately drive the future of the game.

"Both of this year's winners have shown great commitment and a collaborative spirit to grow the game. As ClubGolf continues to bring more kids into the game, we rely on individuals like Liz Taylor and those involved at Fortrose & Rosemarkie to keep it going strong."

Watching on proudly as each of the deserving RBS Awards winners was recognised in front of a 650-strong crowd, including 1995 Ryder Cup-winning Captain Bernard Gallacher, ClubGolf Manager Jackie Davidson said: "If it wasn't for our hard working clubs and dedicated volunteers, the ClubGolf programme simply couldn't exist, so I'm delighted to see Fortrose & Rosemarkie and Prestonfield's Liz Taylor recognised for their success over the last year with the 2013/14 RBS Awards.

"These awards are just a small token of our thanks for their work in introducing and retaining children in golf, which will stand their clubs in good stead for the future.

"Of course, we mustn't forget the many other applications we received in this particularly strong year. All of these together give me great confidence that golf at grass roots level in Scotland is in good hands.

"Hopefully learning more about the achievements of this year's winners can inspire even more clubs to recognise the importance of having a strong junior section and how the ClubGolf programme can help them to achieve this."

ClubGolf is delighted to announce the shortlists for the 2013/14 RBS Junior Club of the Year and Volunteer of the Year Awards, featuring eight clubs and individuals who’ve made a real difference over the past 12 months.

The £1,500 first prize for RBS Junior Club of the Year will be contested between Bathgate, Fortrose & Rosemarkie, Peebles and Prestonfield after each enjoyed a landmark year in attracting youngsters to the game.

Competition in the individual category is just as strong with Dundas Parks’ Jim Cowper, Alastair Tait of Fortrose & Rosemarkie, Liz Taylor from Prestonfield and Thornton member Fraser McDonald in contention for £500 for reinvestment into their clubs, plus £100 to use personally.

The winners will be presented at the glitzy 2014 Scottish Golf Awards, alongside some of the biggest names in golf. Two representatives from each aforementioned club will attend the Hilton Glasgow on 28 February to see the victors crowned, where they will also witness Scottish Ryder Cup legend Bernard Gallacher receive a Lifetime Achievement award.

Applications for the RBS Volunteer of the Year were invited from all volunteers involved in Scottish golf, while the club prize is reserved for those clubs and facilities affiliated with ClubGolf.

ClubGolf Manager Jackie Davidson is delighted the hard work being done for junior golf at clubs and the tireless enthusiasm of Scotland’s volunteers is being recognised once again.

She said: “For everyone at ClubGolf, the RBS Awards are one of the highlights of the year as we get to see those who have put their time and effort into our programme rewarded for this terrific work.

“As always, we have had a great response across the country with many terrific stories of those doing their utmost to improve Scottish golf at the grass roots.

“Our shortlists, while not exhaustive of the great work being done, represent those clubs and individuals who have done the most to encourage participation in the game of golf and we look forward to seeing the winners crowned at the 2014 Scottish Golf Awards.”

On their backing of the 2013/14 Junior Club and Volunteer awards, RBS Group Head of Sponsorship Bruce Cook is happy to once again support the positive work being done across Scotland to preserve the health of the game.

“We really are pleased to be a part of these awards as they celebrate the foundation and future of the game,” he said. “The hard work of clubs to grow the junior game and the selfless contribution of so many volunteers across Scotland is incredibly impressive and gives us all confidence that golf in Scotland is on a positive trend.

“The pool of candidates for these awards is always strong and the selections have not been easy, but we commend all candidates and hope these awards can help the clubs achieve even more success in the years to come.”

Gents Turkey Tourney (Stableford) - Sunday, 15 December 2013.

Willie Graizer was the winner of the Gents Turkey Tourney for 2013 and as a result won the Christmas Hamper with a fantastic score of 36 points. Whilst there was little rain until later on in the round, the wind was blowing so hard that members trolleys were constantly being blown over. Long iron's and even woods were being played off the 5th tee which only measures 120 yards in length.

Willie's score included a birdie three at the 10th hole and 12 pars in halves of 16 and 20 points to win by two from his nearest challenger. With scoring so difficult for those playing on the course it was no surprise that two thirds of the field failed to get to as much as 30 points. Thankfully there were plenty of flasks on the course and a drink station at the 11th hole to keep the spirits up!
