FRED FINDLAY, his Story, his Life, and his Golf Courses

Fred Findlay (1872-1966) is the younger brother (8th) to Alexander H. Findlay. Please read the short story on Fred, and his grandson Buddy Loving and their accomplishments in the golfing world. But before you venture over there take a look below on the many golf courses designed by Fred and Buddy Loving his grandson.

Of course, I have just scratched the surface on Fred and his Life. If you have any thoughts on Fred, his daughter Ruth and their Children Bonnie and Buddy, please send it along to post on this web page. I am still working on the golf courses and many of their locations. Much of the material I have is approaching 90 years of age.
