Mungo:Pemberbrook is most likely a typo. I believe they were referring to Tumble Brook which is in Bloomfield, CT, near Hartford.Philmont CC has a North and a South course. The North course at Philmont is attributed to Willie Park and the South course is attributed to John Reid with changes made by Hugh Wilson.Do you have anymore information on Elm Terrace in West Haven, CT? I have never seen a reference to this course before and I am from CT. There was an Elm Terrace Inn in Woodmont, CT which is right next to West Haven, but I can not find any information on the golf course.Bret
With regard to Elm Terrace, I have a feeling this came from Joe Bausch or Sven? but otherwise it might have been Tony Pioppi or Kyle Harris. It was before I was making a note of the attribution. I think it was indeed the Elm Terrace Inn, but I can't find the source at the moment. Can anyone help out?
218 77 St. Louis Amateur Athletic Association (St. Louis, MO) aka Tr?i?p?le? A CC Ben,Thanks, never knew this was once a Willie Park. Triple A was a 9 hole private facility built within our main urban park, Forest Park. It had two sets of tees so you could play it twice and somewhat have a different 18 hole experience. Unlike the other 27 holes where the park went around the course, at Triple A you had jogging and bike path crossings everywhere so you had to keep an eye out for pedestrians.Its main claim to fame was it was the training ground for Judy Rankin, and Arthur Ashe for tennis.It was re-designed by a Hale Irwin associate and now serves as our First Tee chapter. Short and quirky. It was nothing special before, though if it restored to Park's original design maybe it could have been better.
