Kirkhill Golf Club was founded in 1910 from some former members of Cambuslang Colf Club. The Club house was built as a dwelling house, just in case the new venture did not work out. The founders certainly had some vision, energy and only four years after the founding of the club they arranged an exhibition golf match which was held in June 1914. The legendary golfer Harry Vardon, 6 times Open champion played with George Duncan who also won the Open in 1920.
At the time of the match, June 1914, Harry Vardon had already won the British Open five times. He went on to win his 6th Open at Prestwick in July of that year. Vardon won the British Open a record six times (1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911, 1914), and was runner-up four times.He also won the U.S. Open in 1900. Harry Vardon quote: "Don't play too much golf. Two rounds a day is plenty."
