Raising John Rattray
David Anderson (Golf & Thistle), having successfully handed Kingarrock over to the National Trust for Scotland, is delighted to be assisting the Leith Rules Golf Society (LRGS) in raising a statue to John Rattray on Leith Links where the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers played their first matches for the Silver Club.
His task is to help secure enough funds to enable the installation to commence and cover the costs of maintenance thereafter.
David Annand, the sculptor of the main statue, has made a 16" version of Rattray. This has been scanned and there will be a limited production of 50 16" and 100 11" bronzes produced at the same Edinburgh foundry that has made the life-size Rattray for Leith Links. Each statue will have the sculptors unique mark and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.
