Dunbar Golfing Society. In 1794 the first golfing organization is recorded when a body known as The Dunbar Golfing Society set down its rules and listed 27 members. This Society played at West Barns Links (near today’s East Links Family Park). A framed copy of the rules hangs at Dunbar Golf Club clubhouse today. Sadly no further record of them survives and soon afterwards the West Barns Links were taken over for Napoleonic military training and exercises.
