Footnotes

  • Roberto: '...I personally commissioned this wonderful club and took delivery of it from David Kirkwood in 2005. It would be a truly wonderful modern day golf trophy as neither the club nor the balls have been inscribed...'

    Silver Club Trophies date to the very advent of organized club golf. Two silver clubs reside in the Royal & Ancient's Trophy Room – featuring a silver ball for each captain of the club and a gold ball for any captain that was a member of the royal family. The first challenge for the Silver Club was played in 1754 – the club having been made by an Edinburgh silversmith.
