Location: Lothianburn Golf Club, Biggar Road

Lothianburn Golf Club sits on the edge of Edinburgh but is just within Midlothian's boundaries.

From “The Scotsman” of 20th March 1922

LOTHIANBURN CLUB’S WAR MEMORIAL

Colonel A. R. Trotter, M.V.O, D.S.O., on Saturday afternoon unveiled the Lothianburn Golf Club memorial to members who fell in the war. The memorial, which consists of a simple but striking oak tablet, designed by a member of the club, contains 19 names, and has been placed in a prominent position in the dining room. Mr William Norfor, captain of the club observed at the outset that the membership in September 1914 was 308 and that between 120 and 130 had joined the forces ,.The Rev. Thomas Marjoribanks. B.D., of Colinton conducted the service.

Colonel Trotter, who had opened the clubhouse in 1910, paid a tribute to the fallen members, and said their names would never be forgotten. They had gone out, and as golfers they had played the game. Wreaths were then placed in front of the memorial by the members, the lady members, and Colonel Trotter. After the Last Post had been sounded and the lament had been played on the pipes, the service concluded with the dedication by Mr Marjoribanks and the reveille.
