Description
This 1925 photograph shows a tee and green from the golf course of the Del Paso Country Club. The course experienced a 2,500 dollar upgrade in 1929 with the introduction of over 1,800 shrubs and trees, the latter including Huntington elms and Oriental planes. Also included was a redesign of six of the course's greens. An additional consideration was the enormous pressure placed by club members for the construction of a Sixteenth Street underpass, which would enable club members to avoid the dangerous rail crossing along the B Street Levee.
