Great stuff, Karl!One thing that is confusing to me to be aware of in your research is that Park's father, Willie Park Sr. also designed golf courses and was alive until 1903 when he died at the age of 70.A number of these articles don't differentiate between the two in a meaningful way, just stating "Willie Park". For instance, a quick glance at Cornish & Whitten's "Architects of Golf" names "Newbiggen-by-the-Sea" as designed by Willie Park, Senior, in 1895. I don't have time at present to do a deep dive but did want you to be aware of that possible issue. Thanks!
Karl,The last list you posted is the most comprehensive listing I have seen of Parkís work. Do you have an exact date for this Park advertisement? Madison Country Club, Country Club of New Canaan and Country Club of New Bedford are three listings you donít typically see in other Park advertisements. I am sure there are many others, but Madison and New Canaan are two courses we have zero information on Parkís involvement, other than both clubs claiming they are Park courses. This would likely answer where that information originally came from. Nice find!Bret
I donít see Castine ME on the list. Designed 1921?
