Golfdom celebrated its 40th anniversary year from 1966 to 1967 … and our history of celebrating ingenuity in the golf industry hasn’t waned in the pages of this magazine. In this July 1966 article, Golfdom founder Herb Graffis takes a look back at the post-World War I golf climate and how much the game owes to a golf salesman and pioneer, Sam Clapper. Clapper helped replace the horse-and-buggy mowers of the day with tractor-pulled cutters, and Graffis highlights his legacy of developing turf maintenance equipment and mower distribution networks. To learn more about how superintendents are getting creative and adapting to the new demands of golf maintenance in these interesting times, turn to our cover story, The piper calls: Golf courses see record-breaking rounds amid pandemic.
