Dunlop Golf Club, East Ayrshire. (1908 - 1930s)

The club was founded in 1908.

From the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald December 1909. "The Dunlop Golf Club have now taken a lease on Templehouse Grounds for their new course, which is admirably suited to the game, and is being laid out on the lines suggested by Mr McMillan, Western Gailes, the turf is very old and has been most favourably commented on. The ground is of a sporting character, being varied and undulating. It is about a twelve minute walk from the station, and about two miles from Stewarton. The membership fee of 10 shillings for gentlemen and 5s for ladies is very moderate." 

In 1914 the secretary was J H Marr, 2 Mansfield Terrace. A 9 hole course situated on Templehouse Grounds with a membership of 150. There was no entry fee. Subs were 12/6d. Visitors’ fees were 1/- a day and 2/6d a week. Sunday play was not allowed. The station was 10 minutes away.
