Earlsferry Abbey Golfing Society

Earlsferry Abbey Golfing Society. Formed 1830. “This ancient, healthy, and truly Scottish game, once the chief amusement of this and the neighbouring towns, has again been revived in our neighbourhood. Twelve months ago, a few gentlemen, anxious to promote and encourage the practice of this manly pastime, formed themselves into a society under the designation of the “Earlsferry Abbey Golfing Society.” The club is now numerous and respectable; and it is truly gratifying to see our ancient golfing green, lately lonely and deserted, covered with golfers in their scarlet jackets, keenly engaged in this health-promoting sport.” (FH 26.8.1831)

 

It is most likely that this was the precursor to Elie and Earlsferry Golf Club
