NATIONAL GOLF LINKS OF AMERICA
Southampton, New York
Unknown Maxwell reads “The Ideal Golf Links” by H.J. Whigham about the National Golf Links of America in the May, 1909 issue of Scribner’s Magazine. [Bulletin of Green Section of USGA, Vol. IV, No. 2, February 23, 1924, Pg. 34-35]
Unknown Maxwell visits the National Golf Links of America on Long Island and meets Charles Blair Macdonald. [“The Midwest Associate”, by Christopher Clouser (2006), Pg. 20] Editorial Note: Clouser’s information is based in part on interviews he conducted with now deceased descendants of Maxwell. We accept their recollection of events in the absence of any information to the contrary.
Unknown Maxwell works on National Golf Links of America in Southampton, New York. [“The Architects of Golf” by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Ronald E. Whitten (1981); The Daily Oklahoman, May 23, 1993; “The Midwest Associate”, by Christopher Clouser (2006), Pg. 253] Editorial Note: Multiple modern sources credit Maxwell with working on NGLA. It is not clear, however, when and what he did. According to Clouser, Maxwell’s work included re-bunkering the 8th hole and possibly remodeling the 1st green.
