“My memories of Wannamoisett are pleasant ones. I am not alone, by any means, for when a discussion of places to play comes up, the mention of Wannamoisett usually elicits a warm smile to those who are listening. To those fellows who were lucky enough to be invited to the Northeast Amateur who are now professionals, reminded us of not only tackling a great golf course, against a strong field of top players, but at a time in our golfing lives when we didn’t have a care in the world. We were seeing a different part of the United States, but in a setting amongst such friendly, warm people who couldn’t do enough for us – well, those happy thoughts will stay with us a long, long time. In these days of blatant commercialism with respect to new courses, let me raise a toast to the par of 69 set beautifully on some 105 acres where everything has its place – where one comes away with the thought of how could anyone so talented as Donald Ross combine such clever strategy and yet include such a vast array of different situations and golf shots. And those fascinating greens! 105 acres was simply all the land that Mr. Ross had at his disposal, or needed; thus the par 69 has been Wannamoisett’s ‘Badge of Honor’.”
