Silver medal (obverse) of R. & R. Clark Golf Club

This is the obverse of a silver medal of R. & R. Clark Golf Club. The medal was made in Birmingham in 1893. Clarks were a leading firm of printers.

The obverse bears a design featuring crossed golf clubs above three golf balls, and the words 'Far Anu Sure'. The whole is surrounded by the inscription 'R & R Clark Golf Club Inst. 1892'.

Golf was almost exclusively a sport for the Scots until the second half of the 19th century, and it was played by a limited number of people. It expanded quickly, particularly after 1880, and was taken up by the English, women, and far more Scots.
