: Maryland National Capital Park and Planning

: George's Country Club, trading as Woodmoor
: Country Club. That was about 20 years ago.
: When he was a boy living in Kentland, the

: While working at a golf course in PG county,
: came across some old photos of a
: "Prince George's Country Club" in
: Landover, MD. The photos were dated in the
: 1950's and showed an elegant golf club.
: I conducted some of my own research and
: found that a private golf course was located
: in Landover (The clubhouse still stands as a
: ballroom) and a pro tournamnet was actually
: held there. I found a photo from the
: Washington Post that had descriptions of a
: "pro-am" type tournamnet and the
: likes of Sam Snead even played there.
: Can anyone shed any other light on the club
: or have/know where there are more photos?
