Coat of Arms
At a ceremony held in the clubhouse on 5th April 1980, the Club was granted a Coat of Arms by the Lord Lyon in recognition of the club’s history and status. The formal proclamation was unveiled and is now displayed in the clubhouse.
The design of the Coat of Arms is based on the lymphad or ship from the coat of arms of the Macpherson of Cluny whose family have enjoyed a long association with the Club, and whose land adjoins the Rosemount course. This has been differenced with an Ermine Pegasus to represent the Earls of Lansdowne whose land adjoins the Rosemount and Lansdowne courses. According to the Lyon Clerk and Keeper of the Records, "the three cross crosslets in chief are taken from the Arms of Rattray of Rattray to commemorate the connection of that family with the area".
The motto, "Longe Et Certe" is Latin for "Far and Sure".
