Playing Engineers CC is like taking a walk through time and the course provokes such a historical response emotionally that few courses can compete. The original Herbert Strong design that was updated by renown architect, Devereux Emmet has hosted both the 1919 PGA Championship and 1920 U.S. Amateur. In the 1920 U.S. Amateur, Chick Evans defeated the legendary Francis Ouimet. Over the past ten years, Tripp Davis has been responsible for returning Engineers CC back to its past glory and this week we talked about restoring a golf course of such historical importance.

Each Spring, there is a two-tournament right of passage for amateur golfers on Long Island. The first, is the Richardson Invitational held at the Seawane Club in Hewlett Harbor. Unfortunately, inclement weather has forced this year's Richardson Invitational to September. The second, is the Havemeyer Invitational held on the A.W. Tillinghast gem at Southward Ho.
Southward Ho is in the process of working with Long Island native and A.W. Tillinghast expert, Phil Young to help restore Southward Ho to its original Tillinghast design. If the full plan comes to fruition, Southward Ho would now include one of only three original "Reef" holes designed by Tillinghast and a "Hell's Half Acre" or "Sahara."
In this episode, the On Par radio show spoke with Havemeyer Invitational committee member, Lee Ann Lewis and committee chairman, John Halleron to discuss restoring the golf course to its original intent and how Horace Havemeyer saved Southward Ho.
