Alexander McDonald
Bolton
Born in Mill Lane, Montrose on 6 January 1887, Alexander McDonald was the eldest son of Edward McDonald who became the long-serving professional at Whitby.

Alexander took on the position of professional to the Bolton Club at Lostock in 1914. When he was called up at the end of 1916, his father came out of retirement to look after the course in his absence. Alexander joined the Gordon Highlanders and was wounded with a compound fracture of his thigh. He died in hospital in France on Christmas Eve 1916 and is buried in the Wimereux Communal Cemetery, Pas de Calais, France.

He left behind a wife, Minnie, and a young son: they had lived in The Cottage at the golf club.
