The Club was delighted to acquire a Silver Cleek first used in June 1907 by the then Club Captain, WJ Anderson, to drive off at the ‘brand new’ 1st hole (our current 1st hole).
Club Captain Alistair Forrest took ownership of the club on behalf of Douglas Park from collector Keith Baugh of Kirkcaldy when he visited us on Friday afternoon. The club is engraved with the ceremony details and both the hallmark and authenticity have been checked
Its whereabouts over the years is unfortunately unclear, but Past Captain and club Archivist Harry MacAnespie, who was also in attendance at the handover has taken great pleasure in ‘getting on the case’.
The club is currently on display at the front left of the trophy cabinet in the lounge until a permanent plinth is sourced. Those members with the Douglas Park Centenary Book can find reference to the story on Page 17 of the book.
