PINBHURST OUTIaOOK, VOL. XXIV. NO. 3 DECEMBER 22, li2i 10 CENTS TIN WHISTLES' ANNUAL SWATFEST Won by C. L. Becker and J. R. Goodall The Tin Whistles' annual Swatfest, which was the feature of their program for the week past and which was played on the championship course last Saturday, brought out a field of 46 contestants divided into two handicap classes. This particular kind of swatfest is an elimination affair one or more players are retired at each successive hole, and the first poor hole played generally spells disaster. This fact was well illustrated when J phn D. Chapman and Howard G. Phillips, both sterling golfers, were put out of the running at the first hole of the contest. , C. L. Becker outlived the rest of the twenty-two players who formed the Class A. division and wound up victoriously on the nineteenth green for first prize. H. C. Fownes clung to Becker to the very end, but disaster overtook him at the eighteenth green and put him out of the running. Fownes' round of 86, however, brought him the low gross honors of the lay. Geo. T. Dunlap held on until the seventeenth was reached and L. A. Hamilton kept his head above water for sixteen holes. In the higher handicap division John R. Goodall was the sole survivor at the end of the round. His most persistent rival was T. B. Boyd who fought it out with Goodall to the bitter end, but when the smoke had cleared away Boyd's recumbent form was discovered stretched quiescent upon the eighteenth green with Goodall striding victoriously toward the nineteenth hole and the Class B. prize. H. P. Hotchkiss won the prize for the best net round. The summary: CLASS A.

Work on Clubhouse and Golf Courses to Start at Once At a meeting of the stockholders of the Knollwood corporation held in Pinehurst last week, it was decided to begin construction work immediately on the half million dollar job the architects have planned toward the creation of the new golf resort at Knollwood, which project will probably grow into millions in the next few years. Aymar Embury II, the architect who drew up the plans for the Clubhouse, and who was present at the meeting, was instructed to proceed immediately with the erection of the building, and Donald Ross received similar instructions as regard the two 18-hole golf courses. The Clubhouse will be a structure over 500 feet long and three stories high. It will have a living room 36 by 76, 100 bedrooms, card and billiard rooms, two large sun rooms thai will be practically a collection of greenhouses. One large room-28 by 70 will be used as an amusement hall for such diversion as may be desired, and another feature will be an enclosed park of rooms for moving pictures with balconies surrounding where informal luncheons and tea parties can be given while entertainments are in progress. A swimming pool 'of ample size is another feature as well as two large fireproof locker rooms, one for men and one for women. A department for servants 100 by 32 feet and three stories high will take care of this problem. Mr. Ross has already surveyed and? located the golf courses, which are to be 18-holes each and the best that money can buy. He says he will have one of them ready when the season opens next fall, and as soon as No. 1 is completed he will proceed directly with No. 2. The courses are almost wholly in the cove and valleys, and the knobs are covered with pine groves which will serve to shut out the winds on blustery days and to give a fine prospect on sunny days. . At the meeting last week the following officers were elected : James Barber, President for the next year; Leonard Tufts, Vice-President and General Manager for a period of five years, and A. S. New-comb, Secretary and Treasurer. The stockholders were made directors. They are: James Barber, Leonard Tufts, J. W. Corrigan, II. B. Swoope, H. H. Rack-ham, L. M. Boomer, H. A. Page, Jr., A. S. Newcomb, S. B. Richardson, Donald Ross, T. A. Kelley, and J. Talbot Johnson.
