Rare golf trea­sure

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - NEWS -

One of the world’s old­est golf score cards – dated May 4 1822 – is ex­pected to fetch up to £4,000 when it is auc­tioned at Bon­hams in Ed­in­burgh later this month.

The framed card shows that a Mr Lo­gan played the five holes within the Mus­sel­burgh Race Track twice on that day.

The tally, in black ink, shows he com­pleted the ten holes in 104 strokes to win the Leith This­tle Golf Club gold medal.

The rare mem­o­ra­bilia was once owned by late golf­ing le­gend Sir Henry Cot­ton.
