Originally a 6-hole course, Fauldhouse was extended to 9-holes prior to WW1. In 1940 the 9-hole course had a SSS of 70. Visitors' fees were just 6d a day, 1/- a week and 2/- a month in the early 1900s rising to 1/-, 3/- and 10/- respectively following WW1. In 1914 there was a membership of 85 (peaking at 120 in the mid 1930s). There was no entry fee. Subs were gents 10/- and ladies 3/-. Sunday play was not allowed. In the early 1900s there were stations at Fauldhouse (CR) and Crofthead (NBR) each a 5 minute walk. Local hotel was the Caledonian.

In July 1896 J Brownlie (8) won the lamp presented by Messrs. Rowat & Sons, beating J Henderson (8) in the final.
