In what started by my interest in the early history of Cobb's Creek golf course resulted in having thousands of early golf articles of mostly Philly area golf courses.  Many of these were gathered the old-fashioned way:  from microfilm.

Many are familiar with the Bausch Collection of golf course photos at MyPhillyGolf, and just yesterday a new addition was added to the site known as the Bausch Archives.  It is here where I'm slowly but surely putting up my research findings from the last 12 years.

Don't blame me if you spend way too many hours reading these articles.   ;)

Joe is my good friend and Cobb's Creek Compadre and he's just unleashed this incredible historic golf site on an unsuspecting public.

Be prepared to explain to your friends and family what you're doing on the computer the next 72 hours straight.

Of course, that's nothing compared to the diligent effort and time spent by Joe compiling this treasure trove.   I suspect this will be a go-to reference for a lot of future golf course architectural and historic research for years to come.

Thanks, Indiana Joe(nes)!   ;D

The Jon Cavaliers and Ron Montesanos of this site owe a debt of gratitude to JB for legitimizing the stalking now known as golf course photography. I can't wait to spend time in the archives.
Maybe for 2022

Ron, I hope my work will catalyze others to create a similar regional site with photos and historical info.  That would make me very proud.

All told (research + gold standard photo tours) Mr B has been amongst the very most valuable contributors to this site for a very long time. I'm so pleased that his name is now enshrined along with his legacy. One of the good ones, for sure, is Joe B

Thanks for taking the time to put this together Joe--and thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

Next juicy addition to the Bausch Archives are the writings of Ted Hoyt of the Evening Public Ledger from 1925-30.  Those with interest in Delaware Valley golf history will find these hard to break away from!

I wholeheartedly concur !! 


Joe Bausch has contributed as much as anyone to this community - perhaps only with the exception of the founders.   


It's been great getting to know you.

Technical difficulties on the MyPhillyGolf server since last night (well, actually the server is physically being moved).  It should be up and going again before too long!

I like what you have done.  Have you thought about asking Ran to provide a link and short blurb in Best of Golf?

 8)  Joe,


Thank you for providing this treasure trove of references.  Its wonderful reading.


I'm amused while wondering what folks a hundred years ago would have been lamenting and experiences described, if they'd had widespread access to internet chat rooms/discussion group technology...
