Brown, Michael - Ladies Championship at Gullane, 1898

James Michael Brown (1853-1947) a land and seascape artist whose passion for Golf was transposed to his art. Michael Brown created the artwork for the LIFE ASSOCIATION OF SCOTLAND Calendar.

The 1897 Ladies Golf Championship at Gullane was won by Edith C. Orr. Two of the Misses Orr sisters contested the final, with a third sister reaching the quarter finals. Davie Grant, Snr., caddied for Edith C. Orr throughout the competition which attracted criticisms for the Ladies Golf Union, and she was the ultimate winner 4 and 3. Davie Grant was a professional Golfer.

Golf has been the subject of numerous calendars – mainly promotional. However, for the avid collector, the most sought-after calendar has to be those published for the Life Association of Scotland between 1892 and 1916. The quality of the illustrations is excellent and covered famous players, championships and matches of the period. All but the first two are the artwork of J. Michael Brown, but it is said that 1908 and 1909 are out of character. Few of the calendars have survived intact.
