In Their Words ...........
Kirkhill Golf Club was founded in 1910 from some former members of Cambuslang Colf Club. The Club house was built as a dwelling house, just in case the new venture did not work out. The founders certainly had some vision, energy and only four years after the founding of the club they arranged an exhibition golf match which was held in June 1914. The legendary golfer Harry Vardon, 6 times Open champion played with George Duncan who also won the Open in 1920.
The original clubhouse opened in May 1911 at a cost of £1,600, a fitting home for a club having between 500 and 600 members. The building was in red sandstone and consisted of two storeys and attics. The ground floor consisted of a gentlemen's smoking room adjacent to the refreshment bar, cloakroom whilst gentlemen's boxes occupied the right wings. Upstairs housed the tea room, kitchen, scullery besides ladies' sitting room and ladies boxes. The top flat contained the greenkeeper's house of two rooms and kitchen.In 2003 the membership agreed to proceed with a sale of land and the old Clubhouse and a bank loan and consequently the current Clubhouse was built in 2004 at a cost of £1.4M and opened by Sandy Jones, Chief Executive of the PGA on 26th March 2005.
