A Carnoustie golf club is appealing for information after it was discovered that one of their valuable trophies has gone missing.

The Bill Graham Trophy is a solid silver cup presented by the Caledonia Golf Club to a top junior golfer, but it appears that it has been missing for a number of years and now the club are keen to trace it and return it to its rightful home.

Club captain Elliot Davie is heading up the search for the missing trophy which was bequeathed in honour of a club stalwart.

Elliot explained: “Bill Graham was a longstanding member of the club and he was particularly keen on the Winter League. Once he passed away his daughters Carole and Janice presented the club with a trophy for the junior champions, this was back in 2008.

“It was presented the first two years that we know about. We’ve had two champions since but they don’t seem to have been presented and no one knows much about it.”

Previous winners of the trophy include well-known local golfers Danny Cargill and Michael Maxwell, but beyond that records are not clear as to who may have it.

Technically all the club’s trophies should be in the one place. Elliot added: “Trophies don’t leave the clubhouse. They are presented on the night of the smoker and then put back in the cabinet.

“We are at a loss.

“This all came to light when Carole and Janice were visiting the club and they said ‘Oh, where’s Dad’s trophy?’ This was a couple of years ago now and we’ve been trying to track it down ever since.

“If anybody knows anything about it we’d be delighted to have it back!”
