I am sure the man in the foreground of the photo, left hand in trouser pocket and wearing white trousers, is John Sutherland, the secretary of the Royal Dornoch Golf Club. I am wondering if the man beside him, wearing a bow-tie, is Walter Matheson (who would be one of the winners of the Northern Counties Cup Quartette in 1911). See picture #255.

Three other persons I think are identifiable are (in the centre of the photo) Mrs Carnegie, her husband beside her Andrew Carnegie and beside him (to the right) is the club captain A.J. Ryle. See photo No: 252. Comment left on 06 January 2018 at 23:58 by MASIS PANOS
