A cross-border golf match took place in Carmarthen.

One of Wales' oldest golfing traditions, involving the London Welsh Golfing Society and Carmarthen Golf Club, dating back over a hundred years, was revived this summer.

The connection between the two clubs started in 1907, marking the tradition on the English club's yearly summer tour to Wales culminating in a match between the two.

The home team celebrated victory, winning the Rees Jones Cup, first presented in 1936 by an ex-London Welsh member and Carmarthen president.

Well-known former players include former Prime Minister Lloyd George and many members from Carmarthen area contributed to the development of their home course and clubhouse.

Richard Scott, London Welsh Golfing Society's tour organiser, said: "It was nice to be back in Carmarthen and have a chance to investigate the great history between the two clubs.

"It was great to find out that the DR Evans Cup, first donated by the London-based businessman in 1908, is still played for at Carmarthen to this day.

"It was good to get such a great welcome and share the links that go back so far."

The silver challenge cup gifted by DR Evans is part of the club’s 36-hole competition, and a silver salver presented by London Welsh member Ewart Harries in 1933 now resides in the Ladies Trophy Cabinet.

Carmarthen seniors captain, Aled Owen, said: "I was unaware of the historical links between Carmarthen Golf Club and the London Welsh Golfing Society, but the association is detailed in our centenary book.

"The first link dates back to May 1908 when D R Evans, a successful London businessman born in the nearby village of Llanpumsaint, presented the committee with a silver challenge cup."

The tradition and ties between London Welsh Golfing Society and Carmarthen Golf Club continue, with new connections formed this summer.
