Description
Image shows golfer MacDonald Smith (1892-1949) finishing his swing at the Palos Verdes $2,500 "Open" Golf Tournament, which was held December 30 & 31, 1927 through January 1, 1928 at the Palos Verdes Golf Club. Mr. Smith, wearing a hat, sweater and plus-fours, took first place at the tournament. A large chalk board and group of tournment officials with other competing golfers are visible in background, with the golf course in the distance. The two-story, eleven-room Spanish-style clubhouse [not visible], is located at 3301 Via Campesina in Val Monte. The golf course, which was designed by George C. Thomas Jr. and built by William P. Bell, opened on November 15, 1924, with landscaping designed by the Olmsted brothers.
