A Little Bit of History

While researching the history of the Sugar Creek watershed, I came across an album of faded construction photos from 1975-1976.  After some digital photo restoration, they look good and reveal a lot about the golf course and the people who built it 40 years ago.  As a golf course superintendent, I find the pictures of dirt and sand extremely interesting but I also enjoy the snappy outfits of the founders of the golf course in 1975.

There are 48 photos in all.  Here are some of my favorites:

Construction of 6th Green (1975)
This is most likely from the Groundbreaking Ceremony on May 12, 1975

3rd Hole during grow-in (1975)

2nd Green with the pond filled for the first time
