Municipal Golf Course Improvements – Casper WY

Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA) and Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) conducted improvement / development work at Casper’s municipal golf course, also known as the Casper Community Club. The work was described in a newspaper article as “municipal golf club-house and fairways.”

Casper Star-Tribune, March 3, 1935: “The new Casper Community club golf house was built at a cost of $21,047. In addition, nine supplementary greens were constructed on the course.”

Based on recent imagery Living New Deal believes the clubhouse is no longer extant.
