Rick Shiels paid a visit to Simpsons golf Shop yesterday. I’m sure he will tell his 58,000 twitter followers all about it. I remembered just in time and got this pic taken with Rick outside our iconicheritage golf shop, just a few yards from the world’s most fantastic Golf event. The Carnoustie Open is shaping up great. Can’t wait until Thursday!
Simpsons was established by Robert Simpson at the tender age of 20 yrs when he was employed as keeper of the golf courses. He got the job at the Dalhousie Golf Club where he established the first Official Carnoustie Golf Pro Shop with Open winner (1884) Jack Simpson and his brother Archie who went on to become Secretary at Royal Aberdeen which he had designed with Robert all thos years ago.
