PAST WEEK'S MEETING:
Glenn Byrnes, PGA Professional and Director of Golf and Recreation for Colonial Williamsburg, spoke about the history behind the Golden Horseshoe on it's 50th Anniversary. The course had it's beginnings in 1947 as the Williamsburg Inn Golf Course. John D. Rockefeller, Sr. wanted golf to be a part of the Colonial Williamsburg experience. The Golden Horseshoe was designed and developed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1963, and the next year he added the Spotswood 9 hole Executive Course. Colonial Williamsburg added the Green Course in 1991 and had Rees Jones, the son of the famous Robert Trent Jones, design it Both the Gold and Green Courses have hosted many tournments including 3 USGA Championships. The Golden Horseshoe will host an open house for the public on June 11th to celebrate it's anniversary. There will be horseshoe shaped cookies, putting competition, and a 25% discount at the pro shop. Pictured with Glenn Byrnes are club members Tom Morris (left) and Chuck Hobson (right).
