Silver Medal, 1849, for Peter McEwan, the Winner of the Bruntsfield Championship of 1849.

Bruntsfield Links is a woodland and coastal course located in the meadow just below Edinburgh Castle. Peter McEwan, fourth generation of the famous McEwan Family of clubmakers, was a fine player, even at the early age of 16.

Competitions upon "The Links" were held as early as the mid-late 1700s, and continues to attract play to this day from golfing societies from both Scotland and around the world.

This early medal, with its very elegant engraving, is a true example of the kind of dedication and sense of importance golf held in the eyes of Scotsmen.

3 1/2" x 2 3/8".
