It is interesting how much more detailed the course routings become as you move through the 1920's. No doubt there are exceptions, but the old stick routings become rare. Or are you not posting them?


The attention given to the details of greens shapes, bunkering, rough lines and vegetation by the 1920's is perhaps a telltale of thinking/assumptions about the work of the architect that differed from earlier eras.


In any event, great stuff. Please keep posting.

Bob:


There was a lot more money spent on golf in the 1920's than years prior.


The routing maps are merely evidence of that fact.

The image for the post above isn't available any more.


Not sure if this was the same map, but here's the 1932 routing of Sharp Park.

Here's a map of the Monterey Peninsula that was given a date of 1921 (the contents indicate it was from a bit later).  I've also included closeups of the routings of the courses noted thereon.






Del Monte -





Pebble Beach -





Monterey Peninsula CC -





Cypress Point -

That Cypress routing is interesting no?


Also looks like Baldock and Neville used the Raynor/MacKenzie/Hunter routing for the Shore course. Of course 7 holes had already been started and they were hemmed in by sold lots, so likely had no choice.

I think this was posted in an old thread, but I didn't see it in this thread.  This is a 1964 routing for Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore course. The corresponding article (not included) was written by Bob Baldock.

Mike,
 
Most of the pictures we see about Cypress is the same, but the holes between 5-13 are just a little different. I think 16 is a par 3, and MacKenzie initially had it as a par 4, so it would not surprise me if this is based on a Raynor routing. Of course as I told Bret, it could be Morse or anyone just trying to figure out where the lots were going to be.


Iím not all that proficient at topographic maps, but it almost looks to me as if the eighteenth green at Pebble might be in the pre 1923 position further east from its iconic site. I would love if someone else could look at that. The site of that green would help narrow down the date of the map. It is certainly no later than 1926 in my opinion.

Pine Orchard CC - 1931 Olmsted Plan


Note the plans for an additional 18 hole course.  The holes south of the railroad tracks (on the left of the plan) are laid out differently than they appear today.

Here are a few routings from J. Peter Martin's "Adirondack Golf Courses...Past and Present." A number of the courses don't have architects listed in the book, so I will be looking into that to see if I can find any more information on them

Eagles Nest Country Club and Golf Course, Blue Mountain Lake, New York; Willie Dunn (1900) - defunct




An updated map of Eagle Nest Park course, this one dated Dec. 1930 with a notation that it was updated to Dec. 1937.
