History of the McDonald Ellon Golf Club

1927 - 2016

By Dr Jim Morrison - Captain 1979-1981

 

This is the history of the McDonald Ellon Golf Club, from its inception in 1927 to the present day. During this time the club has grown from the original nine holes, to the full eighteen in the mid 1970s and to having a modern, purpose built clubhouse in the mid 1990s

 

On the playing side the considerable success of its members, at both local and national levels, are recorded in the ‘Roll of Honour’ - achievements of which the club, and indeed the town of Ellon, can be justifiably proud.

 

So let us start on that Wednesday in June 1927, when the McDonald Ellon Golf Club first came into being.
