Hamilton Mill Golf Club – ClubCorp
History of the Canongate Name Our founder, William Roquemore, was inspired to name the club Canongate after visiting Scotland and hearing the following story about a place called Edinburgh. Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland, is the home of golf. There you will find the Royal Mile, dating back to 1128. The Royal Mile runs from Edinburgh Castle, a fortress built on a craggy volcanic hill, to Holyrood Palace, which is still occupied each summer by the British Royal Family.
