Another Brief Account of Golf at Pelham Manor in 1895

I have written before about the long tradition of golf in Pelham Manor. See, e.g., The Early Days of Golf in Pelham, The Pelham Weekly, Vol. XIII, No. 36, Sept. 10, 2004, p. 12, col. 2.

On January 14, 2008, I posted to the Historic Pelham Blog an item that appeared in the November 10, 1895 issue of The New York Times describing the opening of the Pelham Manor Golf Club season on November 9. See Monday, January 14, 2008: Golf at Pelham Manor. Below is a brief excerpt from an article published in the November 11 issue of The Sun on the same topic.

The links of the Pelham Manor Golf Club, on Prospect Hill adjoining Pelhamville Park, were formally opened on Wednesday and a reception was held in a tent near the first tee. The guests were received by Mrs. John C. Hazen, Mrs. Robert C. Black, Mrs. Jabish Holmes, and Mrs. Frank Hunter of Pelham Manor, and Mrs. Robert Lathers, Jr., Mrs. Henry Loomis Nelson, and Mrs. Henry D. Noyes of New Rochelle. . . . ."
