Description

Rotherham District Golf Club - The club was founded in 1903 with play over a fine eighteen hole course at Thrybergh Park, some three miles from the town centre. Illustrated is a small (18.5mm) but exquisite silver and enamelled award button. Within a milled rim and enamelled title band, the recessed central reserve bears the unofficial arms used by Rotherham until 1947, when official arms crest and supporters were granted. The reverse is marked for Birmingham 1909 by JWT. The Club is now entitled Rotherham GC.

Information is from an article in "The British Golf Collectors Society" written by Dixon Pickup.
