Golf Course Planned for Fontainebleau Park - in 1937

In 1937 a golf course was planned for Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville. The course covered the area near where the Northlake Nature Center is now located. A clubhouse of sorts was built. 

Here is a set of the plans for the golf course layout, drawn up by the Works Progress Administration in 1937. Click on the image to make it larger. Some identifying labels were added.
