From the Golfing Annual 1899/1900 - "Instituted in 1897. The course of nine-holes, varying in length from 120 yards to 300 yards, with numerous hazards, is within ten minutes walk of Port Appin Pier, where Mabrayne's steamers make ten or twelve calls daily during the summer, and two during winter. A magnificent view of Loch Linnie and the surrounding district is to be had from the course. Aird's Temperance Hotel is midway between the Pier and the course. Accommodation may also be had at several private houses. Tickets admitting to play - 6d a day, 1s/6d a week and 3 shillings a month - are to be procured at the hotel. A clubhouse has recently been erected".
