Alick Mactavish Tees off at Tain

Alexander (Alick) Mactavish, seen here teeing off on the first tee at Tain Golf Club, was the solicitor son of Willaim T Mactavish, also solicitor in Tain (see picture #399). This picture may have been taken in the 1920's when his prowess as a golfer was at its height. He was Secretary of the club from 1934-1952, Captain in 1929 and President 1957-58. Along with one or two other low handicappers of that time , he was one of the club's characters who saw no need for expensive golf equipment but played in his normal working clothes.

Is this the same A Mactavish who played for St Duthus football club, and was their captain in 1921?
