Although Golf is supposed to have been played in Banff for 400 years, it was only in May 1871 that organised golf was conceived with the foundation of the Banff Golf Club. The name and structure of the course was changed in 1909, when it was renamed the Duff House Royal Golf Club. The bazaar book includes 'The Golfer's Song' by Jason Mackintosh of Banff. This is a rare item of late 19th-century 'golfiana'. It consists of poems, songs and short stories by members of the Club, as well as portraits of local worthies. The publication was produced to coincide with a bazaar to raise funds for a new clubhouse and improvements to the course. The Banff Golf Club was founded in 1871, the members playing on a course on Banff links, although golf had of course been played in the area for centuries. The Club continued until 1924 when it amalgamated with another Banff club, the Duff House Club to become the Duff House Royal Golf Club. Banff: the Club 1895 - Scarce publication, published 1st May 1895, to commemorate the bazaar held to raise funds for the new club-house and course alterations.
