Description

3x Gt Yarmouth Golf Club white metal medals – 2x very large The John Penn Medals overall 1.75” dia (44mm) both plain backs; and another for The Gt Yarmouth Cup played between Royal Blackheath GC and Gt Yarmouth which started in 1900 (see below) c/w swivel bar overall 1.25” (30mm). Note The Great Yarmouth Golf Club was founded in 1882 - the Club arranged matches with Royal Blackheath, Felixstowe and Cambridge University. The Club was fortunate, in the early years, in being adopted by the members of Royal Blackheath who provided Captains, Officers, members and Trophies. The Club still plays the Blackheath Medal (a scratch competition) and Royal Blackheath in turn play for the Great Yarmouth Cup, donated by the members of Great Yarmouth in 1900 in recognition of all Royal Blackheath had done to assist them in establishing the game at Yarmouth. Note: Part One – Golf Collection from "David Easby Estate”
