23.5mm 'VAUGHTON BIRMm' V&S HM
Strathaven Golf Club - This club was formed in 1908 at Strathaven, Lanarkshire, some
six miles SW of Hamilton on Avon Water, using a course that now comprises eighteen
holes. This is a very fine silver award example (24mm) with a rare characteristic, being
specifically die-struck for a grade of award. On a dimpled ground a central male golfer is
poised at the top of the full round swing, with club title around the top edge and 2nd Class
and Monthly Medal at the base. A wide flange back marked around the shank, Vaughton
Birmm and hallmarked Birmingham 1924.
