This postcard shows two views of the Atlantic City Country Club. Dating back to 1897, the original club house is incorporated into the new one. The golf course there “is also reputed to be the birthplace of two commonly used golf terms. They claim the terms “birdie” and “eagle” were first used there to describe playing holes in one and two under par, respectively.”
An April 2, 1900 Boston Evening Transcript article describes all the holes of the golf course and preparations for a golf tournament, with players Douglas, Harriman, and Vardon. It was expected that there would be 2,000 spectators and 200 starters.
