The Golf House

The Golf House was built towards the close of
the last century (18th century), near the foot of the Easter Road,
and prior to its erection the golfers frequented a
tavern on the west side of the Kirkgate, near the
foot of Leith Walk, where, says the Rev. Parker
Lawson, they usually closed the day with copious
libations of claret, in silver or pewter tankards.
