The initial annual subscriptions were 3 3s. (3.15) for men and 2 2s. for women.</p><p>The course originally covered 160 acres and totalled 5,610 yards in length, but the acquisition of some extra land in the 1930s allowed it to be extended by more than 500 yards, resulting in the 6,168-yard that is played today.</p><p>James Braid, a five-time winner of the Open Championship, was the course designer. Nearly a century later we are still grateful to the influence of the man who has the Kings Course and Queens Course at Gleneagles and the 1926 remodelling of The Open Championship venue Carnoustie Golf Links on his resume.</p><p>The beautifully-appointed mansion of Garnkirk House was the original 19th hole and continued to be used until 1932 when the house was taken over.</p><p>A new clubhouse was erected at that time bordering the Cumbernauld Road (now Crowwood House Hotel). It was in use until 1955 when the mansion house was bought after negotiations with the Stenhouse family and became the clubhouse once again. The building is still in use today and the welcome is as warm today as it has ever been.</p><p></p></li><li><p>Glasgow Plasterer &amp; Builder</p><p>0787 657</p><p>I offer a professional plastering service to the Glasgow area.</p><p>I pride myself on the quality of my work and as I am self-employed I can offer competitive rates.
