Pine Valley Golf Club (Clementon, New Jersey)
Founded in 1913 by a group of men from Philadelphia, Pine Valley, in Camden County, New Jersey, has received numerous accolades as the "best golf course" in the United States if not the world. Its principal designer was George Arthur Crump, with a significant contribution by noted golf architect Henry Shapland "Harry" Colt. Thomas W. Sears's photographs document both the construction of the course as well as the finished product, including the clubhouse and its outdoor seating patio.
The Archives of American Gardens is grateful to Charles Raudenbush, PGA, golf professional and club manager at the Pine Valley Golf Club, for providing identification information for the individual images.
Persons associated with the site include George Arthur Crump (golf course architect, 1913-1918) and Henry Shapland "Harry" Colt (golf course architect, 1913).
