Portsoy Golf Club, Banff, Aberdeenshire.

It was reported in the Aberdeen Journal on Wednesday 21st May 1902 that; "Golf may be engaged in but a short distance from Portsoy, at Glassaugh, where there is the nicest little six-hole course it was ever any one's good fortune to play uopn." 

In the 1905 Nisbet's Golf Yearbook the secretary at the Portsoy club was William MacLean, Seaview House, Portsoy. It went on to say that "The club is affiliated to the Cullen Golf Club, and will play on the latter's course when ready." So it seems that the club had deserted their earlier course at Glassaugh.

Theres is also a later Portsoy club, listed as being founded in 1911. This club had a 9-hole course, with a membership of 60. The location of this course is still to be found (if different from Cullen).

Portsoy did not appear after WW1.
