Heanish, Isle Of Tiree.

Heanish Golf Course , Tiree


   'A new golf course is to be opened at Machir, Heanish, which should attract visitors to the Scarinish, Heanish, and Baugh districts of the island. Mr Macneil, Glasgow, has done yeoman service in this direction for the island." (OT 17.6.1911)


  "Devotees of the game continue to reach the island with each fresh arrival of the regular steamers. In the immediate neighbourhood of the course housing accommodation is severely taxed, but both at Heanish and at Scaranish – the former of which is about two and a half miles and the latter, with excellent hotel accommodation, about two miles distant – the usual boarding facilities are obtainable at moderate charges. It has been finally arranged that in the early spring an inter universities match, open to students of the four Scottish Universities, will take place on the course. The coveted trophy is a valuable gold cup, the generous donors being Messrs McNeill, Colonial Iron Works, Govan." (OT 2.9.1911)
