1930

Winged Footís Iconic Clubhouse

As with most of the clubs in America, Winged Foot experienced quite a few ups and downs in the 1930s due to the effects of the Great Depression and the developing uncertainty of the war years. This decade was in many ways the most important to the long-term success of the club. Countless hurdles were overcome to set the club on sound footing while so many other surrounding clubs faltered. Despite the troubles and the restrictions of Prohibitions years, Winged Foot members managed to enjoy a robust social life. The end of the 1930s ushered-in more prosperous times ahead, marked by the hiring of PGA Tour great, Craig Wood, to serve as head professional.
