Who are Ardeer Golf Club?
Ardeer Golf Club can boast quite a respectable degree of seniority amongst the golf clubs of Ayrshire, having been formed in 1880. Indeed only Prestwick, Prestwick St Nicholas and Troon are older than the club. The original course was 9 holes laid out on the links around the Sandyhills area of Stevenston. Although the course has since long gone, the original red sandstone clubhouse remains.
The club then relocated to the Ardeer area of Stevenston, the new course opening on 8th April 1905. This course was a true seaside links, laid out in the stretch of dunes between the town and the sea, on land owned by the Imperial Chemicals Industries Ltd (ICI).
ICI was where the club drew most of its membership, including Hamilton McInally, the Scottish Amateur Champion of 1937, 1939 & 1947. Jackie Cannon was a member prior to winning the Scottish Amateur Championship in 1969 at the age of 52, the oldest winner ever.
Two British Open Champions were also associated with the club:-
- Jamie Anderson, winner of three Open Championships. Musselburgh in 1877, Prestwick in 1878 and St. Andrews in 1879. Sadly Anderson died a pauper in a Perth poorhouse in 1905.
- Willie Fernie, designer of, amongst others, the Ailsa course at Turnberry and winner of the 1883 Open Championship at Musselburgh Links.
