ABOUT THE Hornblower Memorial Invitational
Long running amateur invitational tournament
named for Plymouth Country Club
Henry Hornblower who collaborated with the
now defunct Pilgrim Hotel to create what is
Plymouth Country Club.
To create a
resort complex, the hotel ceded enough land
3 holes, Hornblower contributed enough for 6
more holes and Plymouth Country Club's first
hole course came to life. A brilliant
advisor (founded Hornblower & Weeks, a
investment firm in Boston) he not only drove
firm and his country club through the
in the 1920s, but even guided both through
perils of the Great Depression that followed.
