Club History

Established in 1904, the original course layout at Fereneze Golf Club was designed by Alexander Blair and James Cowan. Visitors often comment on the name Fereneze and wonder from where it originates but there is no clear answer. The book “The History of Paisley” by Robert Brown claims that Fereneze means Fir Ness, the promontory or Upland of Firs, while Robert Murray in his book “Annals of Barrhead” suggests that the name comes from the Old Chapel of Fernun or Fernun’s Chapel. Murray states that the Fereneze hill went for centuries unnamed but when the monks from Paisley Abbey crossed it they thought of it as Fernun’s Brae.

Another suggestion is that the monks came from Florence which in Italian is Firenze. However, it must be noted these are all theories and the correct answer to where the name Fereneze came from is not officially known.
