Van Cortlandt Golf Course Improvements – Bronx NY

Description

Researcher Frank da Cruz explains: “Van Cortlandt Golf Course occupies the center of Van Cortlandt Park. When it opened in 1895, it was the nation’s first municipal golf course, and the first one open to the public. Worked on and ultimately heavily modified by the Parks Department using New Deal funding and relief labor, 1936-1941.”

The golf course was improved with funds from the CWA, TERA, and WPA.
