Old Photograph Golf Course Kilmacolm Scotland

Old photograph of the golf course in Kilmacolm located fifteen miles West of Glasgow, Scotland. Founded in 1891, Kilmacolm is one of the more popular clubs on the outskirts of Glasgow. The parish church in this Scottish village was mentioned in a papal bull of 1225, indicating its subservience to Paisley Abbey and sits on the site of an ancient religious community, dating to the 5th or 6th centuries. The character of the village changed significantly in the Victorian era with the arrival of the railway in Kilmacolm in 1869. Many of Kilmacolm's modern buildings were constructed between this date and the outbreak of World War I.
