Announcement That the Pelham Country Club Bought the Bonnie Brae Property Necessary for its New Golf Course in 1920

In 1920, the Pelham Country Club acquired certain tracts necessary to allow it to open its new golf course. One of those tracts was the acreage known as "Bonnie Brae" adjacent to the Boston Post Road lying partly in the Village of Pelham Manor and partly in the City of New Rochelle. A brief announcement of the acquisition appeared in the April 15, 1920 issue of The New York Times. It appears below.

"Pelham Golf Club Buys.

Harris B. Fisher sold to the Pelham Leasing Corporation the acreage known as 'Bonnie Brae,' on the Boston Post Road, and lying partly in the village of Pelham Manor and the city of New Rochelle, Westchester County, N. Y. The corporation has acquired the property for the Pelham Golf and Country Club, recently organized, and will shortly exercise its options on the remainder of the tract necessary for the links."
