Life Association Golf Print 1916 Calender, Walton Heath



Walton Heath Golf Course.
A Life Association of Scotland 1916 calendar. The calendar is with a wonderful colourful golfing picture of Walton Heath Golf Course. The picture is taken from the painting by Michael Brown. The title is 'Walton Heath Golf Course'. It features James Braid, Mr. W.Herbert Fowler, Sir George Riddell and Mr. Lloyd George - Minister of Munitions and later Prime Minister.

The Life Association of Scotland was established in 1838 in Edinburgh. In the late 1800's golf courses were being established all over Scotland and the financial community set up the Insurance & Banking Golf Club on the Duddingston estate in 1895, beneath the spectacular backdrop of the extinct volcano, Arthur's Seat. To mark the opening of the extended Club House, Michael Brown was commissioned to paint a scene from an exhibition golf match at the Club. The 1899 Life Association of Scotland calendar used this image as its center piece. It was such a marketing success Brown was then commissioned to annually paint a golfing picture until 1916, prints were made of these originals and glued to the cardboard calendar that the Life Association of Scotland produced. Brown's original paintings adorned the walls of the Edinburgh head office for many years.
