Abstract:Profiles landscape architect Tom Bendelow, stating that he "was one of the pioneer architects of American golf. In a career that spanned little more than thirty-five years, he is credited with laying out well over six hundred golf courses across the United States and Canada." Explains that "Tom's early foray into the realm of golf design drew heavily upon his experience on Scottish courses and the methods and writings of several British designers such as Old Tom Morris, Tom Dunn, and his brother Willie Dunn Jr. and Willie Park." Mentions several courses that Bendelow worked on including Van Cortlandt Park. Concludes that "exactly how many golf courses Tom Bendelow was in involved in designing, expanding or remodeling is not clearly known. Many courses that he designed no longer exist, some of the clubs have moved to new locations, others have had a remodeling job done by another architect who was then listed as the course designer or, in many cases; the records have simply been lost...Clearly [Bendelow] was the most prolific golf course designer [America] has seen or probably will ever see."
