In the winter of 1920-1921, Zig (Haas Ziegler) visited California.  When he returned, he told of a new game called golf and talked Alec into converting the pasture into a golf course.  Cows and horses mowed the grass.  This venerable old course was opened in 1921.  It grew from the original four-hole, sand-green layout to this sporty par 34 course.
