Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh made substantial internal alterations to this early 19th-century, neo-classical mansion for its new function as a club house for Glasgow Golf Club.

Authorship: It seems likely that this job was the work of John Keppie, who was a keen golfer and a member of Glasgow Golf Club at the time of the alterations. In 1909, Keppie was club captain. 1
