(LEBANON, Ohio) – The Golf Heritage Society (GolfHeritage.org), a nonprofit organization celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, announces a commemorative edition of The Golf, the Society’s members-only journal. The special edition will include a supplement celebrating the 90th anniversary of Bobby Jones’s 1930 Grand Slam, written by world-renowned Jones expert Sidney Matthew.
Jones completed his conquest of the “Impregnable Quadrilateral” on September 27, 1930, by winning the U.S. Amateur at Merion Cricket Club (now Merion Golf Club), in Ardmore, Pa. The 16-page supplement will include historic photos and highlights from each leg of the Grand Slam. No other golfer has won all four majors in the same calendar year.
"Bobby Jones's first USGA event was the 1916 US Amateur at Merion and his last was at Merion when he completed the Grand Slam in 1930,” said John G. Capers, III, Merion Golf Club Historian. “Our club is honored to have played such an important role in Mr. Jones's pursuit of his ‘Major’ accomplishments.”
The membership fee to join the GHS is just $25 for the remainder of 2020. New members who join by Sept. 30 will receive the commemorative Bobby Jones edition of The Golf.
