In early 1911 Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh unsuccessfully submitted a design for a new club house for Pollok Golf Club, Glasgow. 1 . The competition was won by Salmon, Son & Gillespie and the club house built between 1911 and 1913. It is possible that the two drawings for an unidentified club house may relate to this competition, though the Golf Club minutes specifically state perspectives were not to be submitted. 2
