The Society, through its members, has accumulated
a good deal of information on Simpson. These include:
a. extracts from the “Golf Architect’s
Bible” as well.
b. extracts from his old scrapbook
c. copies of original reports on courses, such as
Muirfield, Ballybunion and County Louth
d. Press cuttings from newspapers and journals (some
from the scrapbook)
e. Articles on him written by other such as Darwin
f. Extracts of Club histories that refer to his involvement
on their courses, such as Woking, Royal Porthcawl, Cruden Bay, New
Zealand and North Hants
g. Biographical information from the likes of Cornish
and Whitten and the Shell Encyclopaedia of Golf.
A full catalogue is being prepared now. Further information
is always being sought.
The aim is to have a Society Archivist who will be
responsible for collating information and keeping members up to
date with new information.
The goal is to find as many original reports
as possible and to create an accurate timeline for his life and
