The New Haven Country Club in Hamden, CT recently held its Champions Dinner to honor members who won a Club Golf Championship Event during the 2015 season. In all, 56 Champions representing the Club’s Juniors’ Program, Women’s Golf Association, and Men’s Tournaments were honored. The event brought a full house to the club’s classic turn-of-the century clubhouse located on Lake Whitney.
Founded in 1898, NHCC is one of the oldest private golf clubs in the country. It has been the golfing home to such luminaries as U.S. President William Howard Taft, Walter Camp, Yale’s first football coach, who is recognized nationally as the “Father of American Football”, Leslie Shannon, former U.S. Curtis Cup captain and three-time team member, and F. Morgan Taylor, former United States Golf Association President.
