While the Greg Postles Lake Park Golf Invitational is the most celebrated use of the Lake Park Golf Course, the course itself outdates the GPI by a few decades. A six hole golf links was originally laid out in 1903. The current golf course was made by filling in a large ravine in 1930. It was first described as a “40 acre putt and mashie course” and was originally nine holes, until it expanded to its current 18 hole format. The golf starter house was erected in 1961. The golf course remains as one of the few additions to the entire vista of the park since Lake Park was first designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in the 19th century.
