Royal Dornoch is hosting a public exhibition of a diverse collection of gifts it has received from the Royal ‘family’.

As part of a year-long celebration in 2016 to mark 400 years of golf being played in the town, the club held the biggest gathering of royal golf clubs ever organised.

Of the 66 clubs around the world with the royal title, 56 accepted the invitation to join the celebrations, with around 300 people arriving in the Sutherland town from as far afield as New Zealand, the US, Canada and the Czech Republic. The R&A confirmed it is as the biggest gathering of Royal clubs.

Their gifts to the hosts have now been turned into a temporary exhibition.

Amongst the collection of flags, paintings, silver salvers and items, are some unusual pieces of memorabilia, including a symbol of Maori chieftainship, a cocktail recipe and a bull whip.

The club envisages it will be the first in a series of exhibitions that eventually will be held in an area of a planned new clubhouse.
