1959 Canada Cup Official Program

Postby twomasters » Mon Jun 29, 2009 11:23 am

I have this program in my collection. 1959 Canada Cup International Trophy played at Royal Melbourne
This was the first event that the now world famous composite course was used to play an event on where holes from the East course and the West course were entwined so the galleries would all stay within the confines of the one boundary fence and not have to cross roads which the normal sequence of both courses bring upon.

Australia was represented by Peter Thomson and Kel Nagle
America represented by Sam Snead and Cary Middlecoff
Canada represented by Al Balding and Stan Leonard
England represented by Peter Allis and Bernard Hunt
Ireland represented by Harry Bradshaw and Christy O'Connor (Snr)
Other teams from Argentina, Egypt, Japan, Holland and all corners of the globe

here is a link with insights about the event by the great golf writer- Herbert Warren Wind


Thought it would be fun to show the advertisements of the day. Good viewing.

Kel Nagle Chesterfields Club- Addington Arnies favourites !

Looks like they decided they could get away with a Ben Hogan silhouette in the upper left corner
