Anyway, we can now see the full programme, beginning with the presentation of a silver key to the club house, given to Mr Gilmour to represent the bond between the club and the owner of the Lundin estate. A series of speeches followed as detailed below, acknowledging the club, the laird, the captain, the architect, the neighbouring clubs and the secretary and committee. Some familiar names appear, including Lundin Mill School master, David Milne Stewart (more of whom to come on the blog imminently). Finally, the various golf matches that took place are listed, including the exhibition game between Ben Sayers and James Kinnell. These two successful early Scottish professional golfers are pictured at the foot of the post (Sayers is on the left). Leven-born Kinnell was killed in action in World War One in France.
Many thanks to Fiona Wilson (great granddaughter of Robert Philp (named below)) for sharing this fantastic memento of an important historical event in Lundin Links.
