23.5mm, London 1900 'Ot & Bd'.
Bowdon Golf Club - The club was founded 1890 and played over nine holes near the village
of Dunham Massy near Altrincham, Cheshire. The silver award is 23.5mm, rimless, slightly
convex and has raised designs. These comprise a central shield above which appears the
Club title and around the top edge an ornate furled scroll inscribed, Golf Is Not Agriculture
This is rather an odd quotation to find on a club button, being part of a maxim of the great
amateur Horace Hutchinson: ‘If you cut turf then this must be replaced, for golf is not
agriculture.’ The reverse is hallmark for London 1900 by OT & BD. (Ollivant & Botsford). I
understand that the Club and course closed c1956.
