The Honourable Company Of Edinburgh Golfers
In 1744, a committee of the Gentlemen Golfers of Edinburgh drafted the first 13 rules of golf to compete for a silver golf club, presented by the City of Edinburgh, over Leith Links. John Rattray, a physician and champion, was the first winner and was declared ‘Captain of the Golf’ and thus winner of the first recorded open golf championship on 2nd April 1744.
