Lot Information

Yangon GC, in Insein, Myanmar (Burma). The course was founded in 1909 by the British, and that would seem to tie in with the 'Officer's Cup' inscription. At the turn of the Century, after full British occupation of Myanmar (Burma) in 1885, the City of Yangon (Rangoon) was already an important flourishing trade center internationally teeming with big and small British commercial establishments like Bombay Burma Co., Burma Oil Co., Steel Brothers, Rowe & Co., Irrawaddy Floatilla etc. Senior staff of those trade organizations, officers of British Regiments, ranking British administrators and merchants decided to bring golf to Yangon as their popular pastime sport, the game of golf. So the present Yangon Golf Club at Danyingon with Mr.G.Ballance as its first captain was established in the year 1909 maintaining two golf courses; one (18) hole course at the present site in Danyingon 12 miles north of the city and the other (9) hole course on 2nd mile Pyay (Prome) Road now replaced by the People's Park. The (9) hole 2nd mile Yangon Golf Club was constituted much earlier at a general meeting by enthusiasts in 1893 and by the year 1904 had a neat small, timber club house and the playing area interrupted by football and hockey fields. The Captain of the Club in 1904 was Lt. Col. G. B Crawley.
