The new 200th birthday badge for St Andrews Thistle Golf Club
The new 200th birthday badge for St Andrews Thistle Golf Club

In 2017, the St Andrews Thistle Golf Club will toast its 200th anniversary with a series of tournaments, competitions and commemorative matches.

There will also be a special exhibition at the British Golf Museum dedicated to the club’s long and eventful history.

To mark the advent of this bi-centenary, the club has commissioned the design of a special badge for adoption in all events and branding throughout 2017.

The new crest reflects an updated, contemporary feel, maintaining all elements of the club’s traditional badge – namely, the Saltire, thistle emblem and crossed golf clubs, complemented by the introduction of two gold-coloured

vertical bars recognising 200 years of golf.

Preparations for this landmark occasion in the club’s history are well under way, with all offers of support or sponsorship being most warmly received by the chairman of the 200th anniversary sub-committee, Jim Knox, on 01382 533415, or at jimk1509@talktalk.net
