Welcome to the BMCC pictorial guide to markers by County
Over 600 club markers from counties around London have been removed from this page for this update (August 2012) as we switch our emphasis to feature markers from the Rose counties of Lancashire & Yorkshire.
The Scottish feature is as always included at the bottom of this page.
For specialist collectors the BMCC can for a small charge produce a pictorial guide to markers collected from golf clubs, on a County by County basis. This can be made available on CD or hard copy. So, if there is a particular County or Country that you would like to see, do get in touch Kinghamphil@aol.com and we will do our best to supply your needs. We can also show Centenaries by year as well as show some from the Worlds major golf tournaments.
This page is purely a part sample to whet your appetite. Please ask for what you would like to see from a collection that has been accumulated over the last 20 years+
Please note Lancashire also includes markers from the Isle of Man.
Yorkshire markers include North, South, East & West as one lot. So if you are searching for a particular part it may take a while!
If you have some markers or pictures of markers from these counties, that are missing from these features, we would be pleased to hear from you.
If you've missed a county that you would like to see drop me an email. Contact Kinghamphil@aol.com
Welcome to the BMCC Scottish Specialist
Whilst a number of us collect Scottish Markers, few if anyone collects them with the passion of Martin. Whilst he lives in Lincolnshire he still manages at least 3 golfing/ marker trips to Scotland each year. If a marker has been produced in Scotland for a Scottish club, chances are he has it, or is trying valiantly to track it down. He even spends a lot a time trying to convince smaller clubs that there is a market, not only from golf club members, but visitors looking for a souvenir of their visit, as well as the growing number of collectors. Many of whom are very keen, not least those involved with the BMCC.
In the left hand column Martin has identified 6 Scottish golf clubs that didn't produce a marker until they celebrated their Centenaries. If you wanted to know about the others, or indeed any help with your collection of Scottish markers, contact the BMCC specialist: Martin 204 Lincs through the Ed.
Trip to Troon & Arran June 2012
I am getting too old to do 4am starts and as we were due to catch the 12.30 ferry from Ardrossan
on the 26th we decided to motor up the day before, and overnight at The South Beach Hotel in Troon.
