Linville Park / Linville GC - the Donald Ross course from a 1926 brochure created by the Linville Improvement Company. The link will take you to a map of the rest of the site, which includes about a dozen holes of the original course that was on the property. I counted a dozen or so shots that either crossed another hole or roadway on the old course. http://dc.lib.unc.edu/cdm/singleitem/collection/ncmaps/id/9545/rec/252 clicks for big

I have finally updated the index at the beginning of this thread. My apologies for not doing so for so long, but this thread can very quickly get away from you! Thanks to Sven for doing most of the heavy lifting on the update. BTW, it was a painful struggle to get the website to accept the changes since the index is constantly running up against the maximum number of allowed characters. At some point (likely soon) I may need to create a separate thread just for the index and link it to the opening posts. Let me know what you think about that. Carry on!Ed
Sven, I noticed a reference to Madison CC while updating the index and assumed it related to Madison GC, where I grew up playing. However, it looks to be located on essentially the same property currently occupied by Fairmount CC down the road from Madison in Chatham Township ... https://www.google.com/maps/place/Fairmount+Country+Clubemail@example.com,-74.4259401,1693m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c3a59e62375169:0x836255100d53a00c!8m2!3d40.7377134!4d-74.4236421I thought Fairmount only dated to the early 1960s. Does anyone know if there was another course/club at that site that predated Fairmount??
