Lauriston

Lauriston Golf Club.  Instituted 1905. “The committee for the formation of the above held a meeting on Monday evening at which it was decided to form a golf club for Laurieston. It was also agreed that the election of office bearers be held over to await the outcome of ground for a course. The meeting was informed that a deputation had waited on Captain Livingstone of Westquarter, with a view to getting suitable ground for a course, and were favourably received by him. During the interview Captain Livingstone offered some friendly suggestions, which, we understand, are under the consideration of the committee. It is hoped that, in view of the want of recreative facilities in the village, and as negotiations are unlikely to fall through, the course should be prepared immediately, and that devotees of the game will soon be in a position to play over a course of their own.”

     (Falkirk Herald 25.10.1905)

There is no evidence that this scheme was ever implemented.
