The Winged Foot Golf Club is a comparatively new, course. . It was conceived*in the fall of 1921 by a group of New York Athletic Club members,\ headed by C.\ C. Nobles, who jias served as^ president ever since. The selection of a site and the designing of the 36-hole course was put in the hands of A. W. Tillinghast, whose only instructions were to build a \man ’ s size\ course. The general contour of the land chosen for the layout ’ a parcel densely wooded and rugged, suited the architect ’ s admonition admirably, and it is ^everywhere agreed that Winged Foot is a man ’ s size golf course. The west course, on which the tournament is to be played, is reputed to be one of the three most difficult in the .country, so that it'will be a real proving ground for championship material. Holding the championships here is one of the ambitions for which Winged Foot has worked for some years. - '*•*« T
