Captain’s Welcome It is my great pleasure and honour, as captain of the Vale of Leven Golf Club, to welcome you to our 2013 yearbook. This year book will help introduce you to the potential experience of playing our challenging and exciting course. Our course is steeped in wonderful history having been in existence for 106 glorious years. Founded by Mr John McMeekin, the course could be described as being park and heathland which overlooks the southern tip of Loch Lomond. From many vantage points on the course the view can only be described as breathtaking looking over the majestic Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond. The Vale of Leven is a challenging 18 Hole (Par 67) course which many visitors have described as “excellent condition all year round”. This is the reason visitors to the course return again and again.

We have a newly refurbished clubhouse where £500,000.00 has been spent to provide our members and visitors with an extremely comfortable changing area. After your game of golf why not relax in our clubhouse, the 19th hole, where you can partake of some of our wonderful food from our extensive menu or indeed a small refreshment or two. Hopefully this year book will give you an insight to the Vale of Leven Golf Club and also wet your appetite enough to want to come along and enjoy a day out at this fantastic course.

History of the Club

The founder John McMeekin was a tall handsome man, courteous and full of interest for anything and everything, music, art, sport and any kind of job well done. He was well known within the local community for being a local publican, he formed the first Quoits club in the area, he also made his own furniture and was an excellent landscape painter in oils and watercolour.

6

The opening of The Vale of Leven Golf Club was on April 6th 1907, whereupon Mrs Crum-Ewing was asked to hit the first shot over a 9 hole golf course on leased ground from the Crum-Ewing family. The clubhouse at this time was an old railway carriage which was transported from the local station by horse and cart and was situated at the foot of the Umbrella Woods where the green keepers’ shed now stands.

On 25th September 1909 a meeting to discuss the amalgamation with Jamestown Golf Club took place and this extended the course from 9 to 18 holes. This new 18 hole course was opened in June 1911. The Course could be described of being park and heathland, which overlooks the southern tip of Loch Lomond. The view from the 17th (The Ben) with its variety of woodland, moor, pasture, loch, glen and everlasting hills can truly be described as breathtaking. During the Second World War the 6th, 7th, and 8th holes were ploughed to help the war effort. When the war ended the course reverted back to its original 18 holes. In 1950 the course was put up for sale by Crum Ewing Estates and the club was successful in its purchase which proved to be a good investment and by 1952 the course was purchased

for the sum of £1500, freeing the membership from the millstone of a yearly lease. This was a significant step in the history of the club and one that we owe great deal to the foresight of the committee at that time. A few years later the club purchased a disused clubhouse from Helensburgh Golf Club and this was also transported by horse and cart and situated where the Lomond Lounge and locker room now stand. This clubhouse lasted many years until the cost of repairs became excessive and it was decided to build a new Clubhouse in two phases. Phase One was built and furnished for the sum of £10,000 and opened in January 1970.


Phase Two, consisting of the demolition of the old clubhouse, building the function and locker room etc and this opened in 1976 and cost ÂŁ28,000 fully furnished. The Club is very proud of the fact that members built both phases by voluntary labour and a great sense of achievement was felt by all involved. Presently, the club has undergone another major renovation, in way of our new extension to the clubhouse building. The new build now hosts our Gents, Ladies, Veterans and Junior Locker rooms augmented by the refurbishing of our old locker rooms. This has given the club the ability to provide a locker to every

member joining the Golf Club. The development has also freed up a section of the building which has now been converted into a Junior clubhouse area complete with pool table and TV. Many changes have taken place over the years with several new greens, tees, bunkers, watering system etc all being completed. The improvement to the course is on-going. And it is with great pride we can look at our club and thank the committee, the Green Keeping Staff, the House Staff and members.

Ladies Captain I am delighted to have become Lady Captain of the Vale of Leven Golf Club once again. The Ladies Section in the club is fairly small but enthusiastic. Our season begins in mid-March with a couple of fun competitions before getting down to the serious business of Thursday weekly medals from April till September. In addition we have Knockout Competitions, so it is a busy time competing in these especially early season in the first rounds. We also take part in team matches against other clubs providing great fun and friendly rivalry. The Allander League is a handicap competition between several clubs north of the River Clyde. There is also a heavily contested annual competition between ourselves and Dumbarton Golf Club, where we play for the ‘Rockvale Shield’, with two matches both home and away - whoever wins, it feels like winning the Ryder Cup!

During the winter we have one medal a month on a Sunday morning. In November we have our prize night when the various trophies are awarded, after which we have a disco and buffet - a great social night! After our Ladies AGM, early in the year we have our ‘Start of Season Dinner’, which is well attended. We have a few junior girls and they play competitions with ladies and junior sections. It is very encouraging to see their progress. Two of our ladies also coach ‘Level 1, Clubgolf’ with children of all ages. Our annual ‘Aunt Ethel Texas Scramble’ is played in the early part of the season where teams are made up of a gent, lady, senior and a junior and is great fun for all ages. There is a good spirit within our friendly club and many new friendships have been forged.

Out & About The Vale of Leven Golf Club is located on the east side of the valley overlooking the world famous Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond. From the highest point of the course, views extend as far as Dumbarton Rock and the Clyde estuary. The Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park provides a wide variety of outdoor activities and attractions for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. So if you can tear yourself away from the delights and demands of our golf course why not;

14

Visit LOCH LOMOND SHORES – the principal gateway to the National Park. It is Scotland’s most spectacular visitor destination, combining the beautiful environment with an outstanding mixture of leisure and shopping experiences overlooking the majesty of Loch Lomond at Balloch. Dive in and be wowed by the many strange, beautiful and fascinating creatures of the deep as you journey through the amazing underwater world of SEA LIFE Loch Lomond. Adventure seekers can canoe, kayak or hire a pedal boat. Kids can let off some steam at the fun-fair and play park. Food lovers should keep an eye on the website for the regular continental or farmers markets, or simply indulge in the cafés and restaurants specialising in Scottish produce.

Enjoy the wonderful scenery of the 18 mile long LOCH LOMOND from on board one of the many sailings from Balloch or take to the Clyde and sail ‘doon the watter’ on the world’s last remaining sea-going paddle steamer THE WAVERLEY. Climb in the ARROCHAR ALPS with Ben Arthur (The Cobbler) in the West and the renowned Ben Lomond to the East. If a gentle stroll is more to your liking the TROSSACHS area, which includes Aberfoyle, Loch Katrine and Callander, provides an abundance of choice to suit all tastes. If all of that is not enough to stop you worrying about your putting, you could visit DUMBARTON CASTLE, treading in the footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots, who was there in 1548. A climb up 547 steps is rewarded by spectacular views of the Clyde estuary and beyond.
