Leith Links & Rules of Golf Print

Pin It


Golf at Leith, Scotland is recorded to be among the first formalized golf courses in the history of the game. Established as the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (now residing at the Royal Muirfield Links) it was this society that first immortalized the Rules of Golf.

These thirteen original rules, together with a depiction of the routing of the original five-hole course at Leith, "Leith Links", form this handsome piece of golf history. Illustrated by golf architect Forrest Richardson, the course plan traces the Links of Leith as interpreted by several cartography works dating as far back as the 1700s.

Nuances of the links were reproduced from an 1822 map by Charles Thompson showing the land at the Mouth of the Water of Leith near Edinburgh, Scotland. Golf was abandoned at Leith Links in 1831 because the compact links had become too crowded with people using the grounds as a park.

A great gift of golf history featuring the early development of the game in Scotland and the original rules of golf.

We use styrene instead of glass so our products may be shipped without breaking.
