Banana and Egg Hair Treatment

Looking for a little more shine in your hair? Simply mix one egg and a mashed up banana. Apply it as a thick paste to your hair and leave it on for 10 – 30 minutes. Wash it our doing your usual hair washing ritual (if you usually use a store-bought conditioner you’ll probably only need to condition the ends). And voila! Super simple, and all natural, beauty tip.

Simple Honey Face Mask

Raw honey is naturally anti-bacterial and a super quick way to get soft, beautiful skin. Once a week use a tablespoon or so of raw honey (not the processed stuff parading as honey) and gently warm it by rubbing your fingertips together. Spread on your face. Leave on for 5 – 10 minutes and then use warm water to gently rinse it off and pat dry. Then bask in the glow of your honey-awesomeness. This raw honey is awesome, by the way.

Elbow and Knee Exfoliate and Skin Brightener

Cut an orange in half and rub it on your elbows and knees. Helps soften those rough patches. And it smells good. (Rinse off the sticky mess when you are done.)

Gentle Body Scrub

Mix a 2 to 1 ratio of olive oil and sea salt to make a quick and effective body scrub. This helps get rid of dead skin cells creating softer, more glowing skin. And this natural beauty tip is much cheaper that expensive store bought  body scrubs.

Golf in Bangladesh started in 1950s. However, the clubs had continued at  their  own and were not so regulated by any apex body until late 1990s.

Established in 1998, the Bangladesh Golf Federation (BGF) came into being as the highest body of  golf in the country . It is responsible for the management, promotion and development of golf in Bangladesh .

The BGF has introduced number of initiatives for promotion and development of golf in the country. Towards this, different training programs for the underprivileged golfers under the aegis of R&A started in 2007. The federation has established its own golf academy in the year 2015. Recently, the ‘Junior Division Golf’ -a sub organ of BGF has been formed with the expressed purpose of developing the game from the root.

The Bangladeshi golfers, both amateurs and professionals, have left marks in the international arena. Most of the professional golfers in the country have risen through age-group development programs under BGF.

 Home of Club Golf is a new book by Neil Laird published today. It tells the previously unknown story of the golf clubhouses of Bruntsfield Links, covering over 300 years of golf history.

This is a collector’s book – 180 pages, 26.5 x 28.5 cms and 109 illustrations!

BLHoCG MarketingGolfhall

2017 marks the 300th anniversary of the building of Golfhall, the world’s first golf clubhouse and genesis of the first golfing societies. It stood for over 250 years. It was demolished in the 1950s without anyone knowing its true history.

Bruntsfield is where groups of golfers first began meeting to play golf. This book provides the proof. Three years of research has produced an astonishing amount of new information about Golfhall and events at Bruntsfield Links.

This book tells Golfhall's full story and those of the other clubhouses at Bruntsfield including Maggy's Houff, the Golf House East and the present-day Golf Tavern, inheritor of the Golfhall title and business. It sheds new light on the beginnings of the Royal Burgess and Bruntsfield Links golfing societies.

The Golfhall estate was built in 1717 by James Brownhill. It was much bigger than anyone realised. The main building was the first golf clubhouse in the world, which served as a golf clubhouse for over 150 years. In many ways, the existence of Golfhall started the golf clubs. The main building became 27-28 Wright’s Houses and was later known as the Golf House Tavern and the Golf Hotel.

Golfhall and the other clubhouses were used by many clubs including the Royal Burgess, Bruntsfield Links, Bruntsfield Allied, Edinburgh Thistle, Warrender and Bruntsfield Short Hole golf clubs. New evidence now shows that the ‘archer’ golfers and several early golf-club makers were based there from 1720.

The book contains many new details about the clubhouse history and the people who lived in it and used it. An early publican, in 1723, was Robert Biggar, a champion archer and golfer. Another important, newly-discovered tenant is George Neilson, bow-maker to the Royal Company of Arhcers and golf-club maker. In fact, all the official bow-makers for the Royal Company of Archers for 80 years made golf clubs and were based at Bruntsfield.

In 1760, Golfhall was bought by a golf-club maker, Thomas Comb, who revived the pub with David Babtie as the publican. It has long been known that Thomas Comb was based there, but not the fact the he owned the whole place for decades and developed the estate significantly. Comb was the longest serving golf-club maker at Bruntsfield. He served his apprenticeship there and worked at Golfhall from 1749 until he died there in 1797.

Thomas Comb was followed by the famous McEwan family, the greatest golf-club making dynasty of all, who started at Bruntsfield Links and remained there for fifty years, even after they had moved their main manufacturing base to Musselburgh.

Gourlay marketing

An important discovery reported in the book is the divorce of Douglas Gourlay, who arrived at Bruntsfield Links in 1790, later than thought. Astonishingly, he had a previously unknown second wife, Mary Douglas, who sued him for divorce for cruelty and neglect. Not only that, but they had a daughter, Mary Gourlay, from whom he became estranged, after his second wife had left him. She died in Leith aged 23 years old.

Bruntsfield Links was the site of the first known women's golf match in 1738, which was won by 'Charming Sally', whose identity we can only guess at. It was also where the first woman golf-club maker is recorded. She was Mrs Isobel Denholm, who carried on her husband's business after his death in 1821.

The book has a complete history of the tenants who ran Golfhall from 1760 to 1890, when links golf ceased to be played at Bruntsfield. The pub and clubhouse fell into disuse in the early 20th century and the building complex was owned by a painter and decorator until 1954. Shortly afterwards, it was demolished and in 1987 the student residences at 28 Wright’s Houses were built on the site.

Golf / The Birth Of Golf

A History of Golf since 1497
The Birth Of Golf

Scotland - FifeGolf as we know it today originated from a game played on the eastern coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century. Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club.

Some historians believe that Kolven from Holland and Chole from Belgium influenced the game. The latter was introduced into Scotland in 1421.Chole However while these games and countless others are stick and ball games, they are missing that vital ingredient that is unique to golf - the hole. Whatever the argument, there can be no dispute that Scotland gave birth to the game we know as golf today.

During the mid-15th century, Scotland was preparing to defend itself against an English invasion. The population's enthusiastic pursuit of golf and soccer to the neglect of military training (archery primarily) caused the Scottish parliament of King James II to ban both sports in 1457. The ban was reaffirmed in 1470 and 1491 although people largely ignored it. Only in 1502 with the Treaty of Glasgow was the ban lifted.

Mary Queen of ScotsGolf's status and popularity quickly spread throughout the 16th century due to it's royal endorsement. King Charles I popularised the game in England and Mary Queen of Scots, who was French, introduced the game to France while she studied there. Indeed the term 'caddie stems from the name given to her helpers who were the French Military, known in french as cadets.

William InglisThe premier golf course of the time was Leith near Edinburgh. Indeed King Charles I was on the course when given the news of the Irish rebellion of 1641. Leith was also the scene of the first international golf match in 1682 when the Duke of York and George Patterson playing for Scotland beat two English noblemen.
