On this day, In 1888 John Reid demonstrates golf to Americans at St. Andrews Yonkers, NY

Reid

 Scot John Reid deemed the “Father of American Golf”

On this day, in 1888 John Reid came to America to finally teach us how to play “golf”.  The balls and clubs were brought from Scotland and the game was started on a cow pasture with three poles.  This area would later be dubbed, St. Andrews Golf Club of Yonkers and officially formed later that year.

The club and course have been moved several times, but from 1897 into the 1980s its location was Hastings-on-Hudson.  John Reid gets most of the credit as “Father of American Golf” from this outing in 1888.  He was the St. Andrews Clubs first president and remained in Yonkers til his death.
