The three day garden fair held in aid of the golf club in August 1907 in the beautiful grounds of the Lochawe Hotel, opened by Miss Campbell of Blythswoood, resulted in raising the sum of £585.  

The professional in 1908/9 was Richard Bridges and in 1909/10 R Hobbens.

Dunlop produced a series of interesting golf adverts prior to WW1. They included many famous courses and some a bit off the beaten track. Lachawe featured in 1914.
