SS169 C1894 Tooting Bec Medal.

385.00

 Tooting Bec Medal. This large
 bronze medal was won
 by Oscar E.Coles in
December 1894 for
winning the monthly medal
competition with a score of 101-12=89 nett. Tooting Bec is situated just a few short miles south of the houses of Parliament in London. Many members of this club were in fact Members of Parliament and would travel down by train to play their golf. In the early 20th century the course pretty well closed and was moved just a few miles more central to  Tooting and played on the furzedown links. And later its members moved on and joined Mitcham golf club that still exists today. These medals are very sort after as they form very much a part of the very early golf played in and around London.
