Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Dumbarton Golf Club, one of the oldest in the West of Scotland, owes its existence largely to the fact that in 1887 a few of the town's illustrious shipbuilding sons holidayed at St Andrews. There, inevitably one might say, they tried their "prentice hands on the Old Course". Although they had them badly bitten, they returned to the 700 year old Royal Burgh, situated where the Leven meets the Clyde, bent on forming a club of their own. An artisan club was formed in 1888. The first chairman of the club was Mr James Denny, one of the shipbuilding Denny family of Dumbarton.
