History of Minneapolis Golf Club
« on: May 29, 2018, 07:41:16 PM »
The Minneapolis Golf Club has made their 100th anniversary history book available as a Kindle download for just $2.99. I wrote the book for them in 2016, but I won't share in any of the download profits. I just wanted to let the historians on this site know that the privately published book is now available to anyone who wants a copy, for a very reasonable price. It contains a lot of cool photos and little-known facts and stories about the Willie Park-William D. Clark-Donald Ross golf course. My favorite parts to research and write were the in-depth accounts of the 1940 Western Amateur, 1950 U.S. Amateur and 1959 PGA Championship, all played on what was then considered Minnesota's most championship-worthy golf course.
