Garden City GC awaits 101st Travis Invitational
By Jay Flemma, The Golf Space
GARDEN CITY, NY (May 16, 2011) -- You can’t help but fall instantly and forever in love with Garden City Golf Club because broad smiles and irrepressible good cheer radiate from every face each time you are there. A soothing, restorative elixir to combat the stress and bustle of New York, the true magic of Garden City lies both in its ability to transport the golfer back in time 100 years, and in the ineffable joy of the members, stewards of some of golf’s most storied traditions.
Arriving at the club for any event is like escaping the real world for a while, leaving your cares aside, and basking in the club’s Old World charm, grace, and courtesy. But for one week in May, Garden City outdoes itself with a celebration of golf history, tradition, and competition which is unparalleled in all of golf – the Walter J. Travis Invitational, which turns 101 years young this year – the greatest amateur golf tournament in America, save the U.S.G.A. Amateur Championship.
