But the ainks are. there just the same, and a loyal group of -golfers -golfers regularly regularly take their exercise on the links. C . The course Is. situated just -west -west 6f North Ritter avenue, and, is a part. of the Kllenberj(er. woods.f which in. the last two years has been made into'' one of : the city's delghtful little parks. The course is nine "holes." and is attended to ; by James Connacher, the "grand 'old man" of golf . In Indianapolis. . Mr. Connacher haa been teaching kolf in Indianapolis for a number of years, having been con- con- nected. with the . Highland r links until -' -' ' : - .- .- r - TEE AT FOURTH HOLE, LOOKING NORTH. about three ' years ago., and he numbers bis pupils ' by the scores. Many of those whose names now appear at the' head of tournament lists . received their first Instruction Instruction In goif from Mr. Connacher.' The Irvingrton links serves as an admirable admirable - practice grounds for Xhose Who do not - have the' time to go to Riverside park to play and to those who.are new at the gime.
