Cambuslang Golf Club, 30 Westburn Drive, Glasgow G72 7NA

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 647609



A meeting took place on 10th.March 1892 at the Central Halls, Cambuslang, when it moved that a Golf Club be formed to be called Cambuslang Golf Club. www.cambuslanggolf.org

The Memorial Shield is stored in a glass cabinet located in the memberís lounge. The club members compete annually for the Shield and the names on the shield are those of the winners.



The Shield is inscribed as follows:
GALLERY VICTORY SHIELD 1914 Ė 1919
Presented by Mr Sam Gallery Jnr.
To The Cambuslang Golf Club (Westburn Green)
To commemorate the Victory of the Great War


Many thanks to Roy Dunlop, Club Secretary, for allowing me access to the club.

John

Great photos of something so highly polished.

I suspect there are memorials like this in clubs (not just golf clubs) across the country. Shields and medals in memory of individuals or events.

Thanks

Adam
