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.
