Douglas Park Golf Club in Bearsden was delighted to accept a painting of a view of Turnberry Golf Course.

It was donated by Bashir Maan, an enthusiastic and respected member of the club, who has been a member since the late 1970s, and also one of the most respected councillors to have served Glasgow.

Bashir had a varying political career in Glasgow as a JP, councillor, magistrate, court judge and Bailie spanning 33 years.

He retired from politics in 2003 having completed his four year term as Convener of the Strathclyde Joint Police Board when on retiring from this post was presented with the painting by the Chief Constable of Strathclyde.

Club Captain Colin McEwen said: “I am absolutely delighted to accept this painting on behalf of the club, particularly in that it holds a special memory for Bashir. To donate it to the club for others to enjoy is a very kind gesture and will be much appreciated by our members.”

Accepting the picture for the club are, from the left, Lady Vice Captain Lynda Smith, Bashir Maan, Club Captain Colin McEwen, Lady Captain Gill Hendry and Gents Vice Captain Ian Letford.
