JoeA very interesting article - do you know when the Seaview project began and if Wilson was involved from the beginning. I recall in one of his letters to Piper & Oakley (the first one dealing with Seaview I believe) Wilson was asking for some expert help with drainage. He says something about 'they' really messed up the building of dikes, or whatever, in attempt to drain some of the land intended for the golf course. He gives the impression he was fixing the mistakes of others.
Joe,Didn't Ron Whitten write an article for GD a few years ago on this topic? I think it was mentioned and linked in another Seaview thread. It's no longer available online. Does Seaview have a copy?
Thanks Joe,It looks like the 13th was very short. Do you know the distance? Can you make out the writing around the 13th green? Also, any ideas what is up with the extra dashed line which runs diagonally from near the 12th green to near the 10th green? Is it dashes and dots? Is there some sort of feature such as a ditch or stream there?
When did Wilson first become involved with the Seaview project?
I don't know directly from Seaview when the Bay course project began but it does appear Wilson was involved in it from the beginning as he's been credited with its design in a number of contemporaneous local newspaper reports.
October 12, 1913? Are you sure? Isn't 10.12.1914 more likely?
