Useful St.Andrews Golfing Links
The St. Andrews Golf Club was formed on September 29, 1843. Its 11 founder members were mostly tradesmen, but included a Dancing Master and a Butler (George Morris, brother of Tom). At that time, a feather ball cost around 2/- (10p) and a day labourer might earn 1/6. Golf was not a poor man's game and our first members must have been men of some substance.
