About the Painting
Perhaps the most famous golf painting in the world - and certainly the one with the longest title - is "The Golfers: A Grand Match Played over the Links of St Andrews on the Day of the Annual Meeting of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club" by Charles Lees (1800 - 1880). The original was acquired for around HK$25mm in 2002.
The scene is set at the 'Ginger Beer Hole' on the Old Course at St Andrews during the October meeting. It was painted during the years 1846 and 1847 and shows a two ball foursome in which Sir David Baird and Sir Ralph Anstruther challenged Major Hugh Lyon Playfair and John Campbell of Glen Saddell.
