Major David Crichton Maitland – Honorary President of 43 years

We are saddened to inform you that our Honorary President of 43 years, Major David Crichton Maitland has died. It was he who, in 1980, agreed to the sale of the 212 acres of woodland, golf course, and adjacent lands to our membership at a bargain price. When he inherited the estates from the Speirs family in 1959 Major Crichton Maitland continued the relationship of goodwill which had been evident between landowner and tenant from the very foundation of our club.

Elderslie Golf Club have much to thank Major David Crichton Maitland for.
