The Irvine & Fullarton Times reported on the 22nd February, 1907, that Irvine was a flutter with excitement at the prospect of a municipal golf course being provided for the growing popularity of the ancient game. Golf had been a popular sport in the Irvine area for more than 100 years. The Moor and the aptly named Golf-fields were popular locations amongst the keen golfers to practice their skills. Golf was banned for some time on the Moor due to damage to windows and danger to pupils of the newly built Academy (1801). At the Council meeting on the 12th April (1907), Provost Borland intimated that a golf course had been under consideration by the Recreation Committee. Mr Tulloch of Gailes had been approached to make a feasibility study of the area and report back to the Committee. As a result, they recommended that they should proceed with the layout provided by Mr Tulloch. The estimated cost of laying out the course was not expected to exceed £90. This sum included labour and the following tools, etc. Horse mower, hand mower, two hand rollers, hole cutter, hole tins, flags, tee discs, sand boxes, two spades, etc., together with 9 greens. “The annual cost of upkeep would, in my opinion, amount to £80, and would provide for a green-keeper and cost of cutting with horse mower”.
