Description

Deepdale Golf Club - Accordingly, in 1924, William K. Vanderbilt II, one of Long Island’s most avid sportsmen, decided to convert some of the rolling acreage on his Deepdale summer estate at Lake Success, into a private golf course. It was a historic moment that would create what is still considered to be one of the most prestigious private clubs in the nation.

Vanderbilt engaged Charles Blair Macdonald, architect of the National Golf Links of America and his protégés, Seth Raynor and Charles Banks, to help design and create a premier golf course. Vanderbilt’s friends soon approached him with the idea of organizing a golf club with a small, select membership, a place for weekday play when there was no time for the train ride out to Southampton and The National.

On October 26, 1924, the Deepdale Golf Club was incorporated.

Information is from the "Deepdale Golf Club History".

Pattern: 16108 from Waterbury Button Company "Waterbury Button Company".
