First attempts by the people of Muthill to establish a golf club ended in disappointment. A c1ub was formed on the 10th July 1911 and a course constructed at Drumlaken Park on ground leased from the Earl of Ancaster's estate. Records show that it never really got going - and the outbreak of World War I and consequent conversion of the golf course land to agricultural purposes sounded its death knell in 1917. The club was wound up on 28th March of that year After a meeting in April 1934 the club was reconstituted. Lord Ancaster again made land available for the construction of a nine-hole course and local resident Matt Webster, a greenkeeper at Gleneagles Hotel, was instrumental in planning and laying out the course assisted by other committee members. The course was officially opened on 11th May 1935. Jessie Anderson of Perth, later to become Mrs Jessie Valentine (the three times British Amateur Champion and one of Scotland's most distinguished lady golfers) struck the first ball and played the course with Dr J K Sellar, President of the Perthshire Golfing Association. In its inaugural year the club membership consisted of 20 gents, 14 ladies and 5 juniors and its income of £101.16s.3d was set against expenditure of £93.17s.0d. The club continued in a modest way for the next several years, whatever surplus revenue there was being used in various ways to improve the facilities, the main item of expenditure £ 112 in 1936 on the construction of a wooden clubhouse which is still in use today as changing rooms and toilets.
