It’s said that Stout had the bentgrass for the greens cut in Scotland and shipped across the ocean, along with a world-famous architect and a member of the Scottish nobility. The course itself was intended to be a duplicate of St. Andrews. Fourteen miles of pipe were used to irrigate the greens and fairways. The course also features huge, elevated greens surrounded by deep, grass bunkers. As a gala to commemorate the opening of the course in 1925, Stout arranged to have an exhibition round featuring both the U.S. Open champion and the British Open champion.
Tagalong Golf Club, Birchwood
In the early 1920s, wealthy businessman Frank Stout built a 9-hole course on the shore of lovely Red Cedar Lake to go with his Adirondack-style family lodge (now Stout's Island Lodge). Tagalong, patterned after Scottish links course with deep grass bunkers, opened in 1925. The reigning U.S. Open and British Open champions, Willie Macfarlane and "Long Jim" Barnes, christened the course with a match (Above is a picture of that day). A second nine was added in recent years.
