Tribute to golfer who died at Gullane Golf Club

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.”
