Skelmorlie golf club, was constituted on September 11th 1891 as a 9 hole course. Fourteen years later in 1905 Ladies were admitted as members, but not on equal terms, it is recorded that the Ladies held their committee meetings in the waiting room of Wemyss Bay train station. In 1909 the course was redesigned by the legendary James Braid and 4 additional holes were added, making it a thirteen hole course. The opening of the new 13 hole course featured a match between two open champions James Braid and George Duncan. Plans to extend the course to 18 holes were mooted in 1914. But were suspended at the outbreak of World War 1, when the minutes record The report of the Course Extension Committee was not forthcoming due to members being away at the war. Golf continued to be played over the oldest thirteen hole course in the world until at last in July 1999 the club opened 5 new holes to complete the 18 course. 1999 was also a momentous year for the ladies as they became full members and the restrictions on playing times and voting rights disolved into history.
