Joe Dey Golfing Waterloo

May 14, 2012 update:  Before Joe Dey went on to the USGA and later the first president of the PGA, he was a writer for the Evening Bulletin.  In 1931 that Philly paper ran a series of articles called “Golfing Waterloos” where a local hole was profiled.  On April 15, 1931 the original 6th hole was featured, and you can read it below.  The last 2/3 of this par 4 is still present at Cobb’s Creek, the current 16th hole.  Just imagine that hole playing from the original tee, todays par 3 6th!  Note:  in the photo from the May 11th update below, where the 5th green is being constructed, you can see the 6th hole fairway corridor in the upper left, now an area that is tree-covered.
