Bowhill

Bowhill Golf Club.  Instituted  1904. “The new golf course which has been in preparation at Bowhill for the past four months was formally opened to-day by Mr J.M Thomson, Dundonald before a large crowd of spectators.  The course is a nine-hole one and lies midway between Lochgelly and Auchterderran. Mr Thomson was presented with a golf cleek suitably inscribed and a game was engaged with teams chosen by the president and the vice-president.” (ED 11.6.1904)

 

     “The members had their new clubhouse opened last week when a mixed foursome and gentlemens single competition was played over the course. Tea was afterwards served when Mr Wm. Blair handed over the prizes to the successful competitors as follows : Mixed Foursomes, Mr Swan and Miss M. Shand ; Mr Wm. Davidson and Miss Whitton. Single, Mr A. Kirker.” (DJ 18.9.1920)

 

Club still going in 1923 when they held a dance, but nothing has been found after that.
