OUR STORY BEGINS WITH
THE LAST ICE AGE


1934


Cornerstone for the Clubhouse arrives, 1934

The first nine holes opened on August 30, 1929 – just in time for the stock market crash two months later that led to the Great Depression. A golf professional from Scotland, Johnny Langlands, was hired. It was he, along with visionaries Crane and Claus, who drove the first balls off No. 1 tee. The course at that time consisted of current Holes 1,2,3,and 9 on the north side of the driveway and 10, 15, 16, 17, and 18 on the south side.
