The Club was founded in 1920, and was originally called Colintraive and Glendaruel Shinty Club. The name reflects the two villages from which it has always drawn its players and support, Colintraive and Glendaruel. The name was shortened to Col Glen some time in the 1930s. A sign of the changed demographics of the Scottish Highlands is that Col-Glen could raise three full teams and have nine spare reserves in 1938 but now has only one adult side.
Due to the sparse population, the club has folded on three occasions, between 1966 and 1968. 1993 and 1996. and for a longer period between 1997 and 2005. The club restarted in September 2002 with a primary team and within three years it was able to reform an adults team to compete in the Bullough Cup (which it had won in 1983) and then re-entered League Shinty with the assistance of ex-players who returned to the Club after having been part of Kyles, Strachur and Bute.
On 12 September 2015, Col-Glen won the South Division Two title, the first league title in the club's history.
