|This photo of the De-Mil Putting Course was shot in 1979.
The trick to the lowest score on the course was playing the ball off of the sideboards. There were certain locations on the sideboards of each hole that when hit at the correct speed would generate a hole-in-one.
The course had a small hot dog & refreshment stand that was run by Mrs. Dolatowski
It was known that Mr. and Mrs. Dolatowski’s teenage son, Bill, would regularly play the eighteen holes in 30 strokes or less.
The course was open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, 7-days a week. After Labor Day, it was open weekends until Halloween. In the winter Mr. Dolatowski, taught violin and sometimes drove a cab.
There’s an apartment building on the site today with a "Blaze-N-Grill" restaurant on the corner.
