From John Sagi - Researching these club
buttons has me wondering whether the bird is a Swan or a Phoenix.


4-29-2010 - Revised 5-2-2010
This motto (NON VI SED ARTE), is well known and used by many of the older golf clubs.

Non Vi Sed Arte -- Latin for "Not by strength but by guile"

Added information 5-6-2010
The gist being a club being re-born, rising from the ashes etc. and that no listed armigerous family shows the phoenix holding a flag or staff.

C.C.Y. not Y.C.C.
Country Club of York

I've been researching this button since 1996. Never thought it would be C.C.Y. On July 2013, I found on Ebay two patches of the Country Club of York which one of the patches had the same design of lettering. I waiting for a response from the club historian to confirm my findings.
