Forres Golf Club Remembers The Somme 1916-2016
The Royal British Legion recently launched an initiative entitled Sports Remembers. It has encouraged individual sports to identify and remember those who sacrificed their lives for King and Country in the battle of the Somme 100 years ago.
The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) has wholeheartedly embraced this initiative and undertaken research to appropriately recognise all of its PGA members enlisted to fight throughout the Great War of 1914 – 1918 and who made the ultimate sacrifice for King and Country.
The PGA has advised that Charles Fraser was the Golf Professional at Forres Golf Club prior to joining the Royal Scots Fusiliers. At the age of 30 he died of wounds on the 10th October 1917 and is commemorated at Etaples Military Cemetery, Boulogne, France.
Charles Fraser was born in Nairn in 1886; he started his career as assistant to Joe Dalgleish at the local club and was then professional at Forres between 1907 and 1914. In October 1913 he was presented with a dining-room clock by the members of the Forres club on the occasion of his wedding and he played in the Scottish Professional Championship the following year. He then enlisted in the Royal Scots. It was announced in early October 1917 that he had been severely wounded and, the following week, he died of his wounds in hospital at Dannes-Camiers.
The Professional Golfers Association has presented Forres GC with a Poppy hole flag. This flag will be flown on the pin on the 18th hole.
The PGA is grateful Forres members have joined other golf clubs in remembering the loss of their Golf Professionals who went to war and never returned.
