Ralph Bonnell’s message to the Winchester Country Club membership in 1952, marking the club’s fiftieth anniversary, rings as true today even after the club celebrated its centennial:
The entire history of the Winchester Country Club is fraught with evidence that it was founded and has continued on the proposition that among the durable satisfactions of life the chief is human relationships at their best.
In its charter dated May 5, 1902, it is stated simply that the Club is incorporated ‘for the purpose of encouraging athletic exercises, and for the establishment and maintenance of places for social meetings.’ But we should look behind these modest words.
