DESIGNER UNKNOWN GLENEAGLES GOLF COURSE / THE "HEICH O' FASH" - ON THE "KING'S." Circa 1920. 39 3/4x59 1/2 inches, 101x151 cm. Dobson Molle & Co. Ltd., Edinburgh. Condition B+: repaired tears, restored losses, creases and restoration in margins, some affecting image; creases and minor restoration along vertical and horizontal folds. The Gleneagles hotel and golf resort was the brainchild of Donald A. Matheson, the General Manager of the Caledonian Railway (his name appears on the poster), after he spent a holiday in the area in 1910. Construction on the Gleneagles hotel began before the First World War but wasn't completed until 1924. The golf courses were opened in 1919, before the construction of the hotel was finished. There were two courses, each designed by Scottish golf champion James Braid: the King's and the Queen's. The "Heich O'Fash" ("The Height of Trouble") is the 9th hole on the King's course.
