Description

John Blair (1849-1934) - watercolour Craigmillar Park Golf Links (Edinburgh) - signed to the lower left corner - image 7 x 10.25" - overall 14.25 x 18". Note Despite the club's early success, with 400 members and a waiting list, they were dealt a blow when their course at Newington was taken over for housing development. They decided, rather than to disband, to relocate the golf course to the eastern slopes of the Blackford Hill in 1907. Craigmillar Castle from which the club derives its name was a haunt of Mary Queen of Scots, the world's first recorded lady golfer. How ironic then, that since the golf club's inception, ladies have had equal status with men and there was no gender barrier to any office
