Petrifying Springs Golf Course – Kenosha WI

Description

“It wasn’t until July 1933 when the WPA approved a request from the county to borrow the money from the federal government to build the course. Construction of the 18-hole course began in 1934. It opened in July 1936. Green fees were just 35 cents when the course first opened.”

Some additional funding ($3000) from the WPA went to building a clubhouse a year later — in 1937.
