  • More About This Book
The Donald Ross-designed golf course at the Elks and Wyandot Country Clubs was celebrated as one of Ohio's best from its ballyhooed beginnings in 1923 until its closing in 1952. During its too-short history, the course and the two clubs associated with it overcame many obstacles, including a lack of money and resources during the Great Depression and lack of materials and manpower during World War II. Home to the 1931 Ohio Amateur and the 1948 Columbus Invitational, its membership roll included three-time major champion Denny Shute. Author Bill Case covers the birdies, bogeys and pars in this long-overdue chronicle of a lost jewel from golf's golden age.
