From Private Clubs of Seattle:
In 1910, five Yale graduates sat around their boardinghouse in Ballard, picking slivers out of their hands and dreaming of life back east. Thomas Babcock, Ralph Angell, St. Clair Dickinson, Bob Forbes, and Bob Chase had come to Seattle to make their fortunes and got jobs in the timber mills in Ballard. Joined by Walter "Jack" Johnson, a University of Wisconsin graduate, they all moved into a house on Queen Anne Hill and dreamt of an inexpensive and democratic club to serve young men just graduating from college facing the problem of entering business or professions.
Great weather, great course, and a great time!
The 2012 College Club of Seattle golf tournament was a great success by any measure. Perfect early autumn weather combined with a great course made this an afternoon to remember. Bill Hsu's group won the tournament, but all had a great time.
