This is about a week or two after getting the 'go ahead' to build
the golf course. It was in the dead of winter, and you can still see
the standing corn stalks in the background. It verifies the opening date
also, as 1971. I'm on the right. Charlie White, our banker, is in the
middle, He's now the Mayor of Mattoon. The guy on the left is my
brother-in-law, Ernie Watkins. He helped me build it.
