Tribute to golfer who died at Gullane Golf Club

Have your say

An East Linton golfer collapsed and died while playing at Gullane Golf Club on Monday morning.

Dave Meharry was a former member of the club’s staff having worked as a Starter for nine years before retiring in 2011. After that he continued as a relief starter.

He was a member of Dirleton Castle Golf Club and enjoyed playing his golf on Gullane Hill. Both the club’s trained staff and a local doctor attended before the emergency service arrived.

A spokesman for the club said: Mr Meharry will be greatly missed by the many friends that he made at Gullane Golf club both as a member of staff and as a golfer. Our sympathies are with his wife Ann and their families.”
