From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mungo Park (1835 – 1904) was a member of a famous family of Scottish golfers. He was born at Quarry Houses in Musselburgh, which was to become one of the three towns that shared hosting responsibilities for The Open Championship through the 1870s and 1880s. He learned golf as a boy, but then spent 20 years as a seaman. He returned to his home town in the early 1870s and won the 1874 Open on the Musselburgh Links. His winning score was 159 for 36 holes. He spent his later life working as a teacher, golf course designer and clubmaker.

Mungo Park's brother Willie and his nephew Willie Park Jnr. both won The Open Championship.
