6-Algona (la.) Upper D«s Molries Tuesday, July 11, 1967 New Whittemore Golf Course Board members of the Whittemore golf course (and interested members) recently selected a slightly rolling 80 acres (and possibly 40 more) as a site for the proposed course there. The land is located about one mile east of Whittemore on the north side of McGregor road and an option is now being processed for acquisition of the necessary land. Shown in the above picture is the south end of the land, which should be ideal for a golf layout. Its hills will be easily climbed by anyone shooting nine holes after the project is completed. If the land shown is purchased, plans call for grading some of the area this fall. The. board has contacted a contractor that is experienced in construction of golf courses and further consultation will take place before construction work begins. The board, composed of Ed Elbert, Duane Germann, Albert Kramer, Vic Perkins, H. R. Pettit and Harold Poppen, reported after the organization's latest meeting that 89 persons have purchased stock in the new club. The goal is a minimum of 150, with 175 the ultimate goal. After sign-up of members is completed, three more board members will be selected and officers elected. Site for a clubhouse on the proposed course is at the far right in the photo, which at present has a set of farm buildings on it. According to Ed Elbert, another meeting of board members and interested persons was slated for Monday, July 10, at 8:30 p. m. at the Legion hall. At least 45 persons had attended every prior meeting.
