Beer (at Williamson’s Tavern) to be on the table at 4 o’clock. It is expected all members in town and country will attend.”   (CM  24.6.1793)


   A reference in the Statistical  Account of Rosemarkie of 1793 indicates that the game was being played in an organised manner before this: “The Point here projects a good way into the sea, and forms a fine curve, which makes it a beautiful object. It terminates the Links of Fortrose, about an English mile in length, and smooth as a carpet. This is fine ground for the golf, which is often played here by the gentlemen of the town and country.”
