Dunfermline Golf Club heritage boost

Heritage Lottery FundLocal MSP Bill Walker has welcomed a £10,000 Heritage Lottery Fund award for Dunfermline Golf Club to create a Heritage Wall.

The year-long project will focus on the history of the club, which was founded in 1887 and moved to Pitfirrane in 1953, and its A-listed club house. The club’s archive collection will be organised and scanned to create a digital archive, for display on the club’s website and on a Heritage Wall inside the club house.

Mr Walker said: “Congratulations to Dunfermline Golf Club on this funding for their project. The club is one of Fife’s many excellent choices for golfers and has a very rich history.

“I’m not a golfer myself but I’ve attended many functions on the premises, and Pitfirrane is a stunning course. It overlooks the Firth of Forth and includes the historic Pitfirrane Castle.

“I wish the club great success with their Heritage Wall and look forward to discovering more about the history of the club and the various courses it has occupied over the years.”

The Heritage Lottery Fund uses cash raised through the National Lottery to sustain heritage for present and future generations to take part in, learn from and enjoy.

It invests in every part of our diverse heritage, including museums, parks and historic places, archaeology, natural environments and cultural traditions.
