 John Rattray statue at Leith Links.

The bronze statue, commemorating John Rattray, the first person to sign the Rules of Golf and also the first Muirfield Club Captain, is to be unveiled tomorrow (Wednesday, September 11) at 1pm at Leith Links, opposite Salamander Place.
The larger than life statue has been crafted by renowned Scottish sculptor David Annand and sits on a mound of marram grass at Leith Links to celebrate the 275th anniversary of the first Rules of Golf being published.
Leith Rules Golf Society (LRGC), the voluntary organisation which raised the funds to commission the statue, is delighted that the statue will take pride of place on Leith Links and that John Rattray will finally be recognised for his great contribution to the game of golf as we know it today.
