What was that noise? Did you know that this place is haunted?
Whether its floating apparitions, a voice out of no where or things moving seemingly by themselves – this podcast recounts the stories of real golfers telling their paranormal experiences on the links. Stories of murder, peg legged ghost and singing spectres will follow.
It is our pleasure to welcome back to the podcast golf historian & author, Anthony Pioppi to discuss the book he co-authored with Chris Gonsalves, “Haunted Golf: Spirted Tales from the Rough.”

Saint Andrew’s Golf Club in New York is known as the club of many firsts – it is the seed that grew golf across the United States. We dive into the history of one of the five founding clubs of the USGA and how a three hole course in a cow pasture helped start a golf craze that spread across the United States.
This is the story of Prairie Dunes Country Club which nealry every publication considers it to be one of the Top 30 Golf Courses in the United States. It was built during the Great Depression with a singular focus of being the best golf course in the USA… many believed it reached that goal.
Join our discussion with PDCC Historians Rusty Hilst and Jim Gilliland as we explore the club’s history and look behind the curtain of golf’s version of Field of Dreams.
On this episode of the TalkinGolf History Podcast we explore not just the architecture and the architect of the historic Winged Foot Golf Club clubhouse, but the history of Golf Clubhouse Architecture in America. Our guest today is Jim Sitar, the person behind the famous Instagram account, “GolfClubHouses,” where you can explore many of the famous clubhouses from around the world.
Clubhouses provide more than just a place to change your shoes – listen in for the history and evolution of the buildings many of us take for granted.
Walter Travis lived the life that so many of us dream of – picking up the game just under the age of 35 and winning 4 major championships he became not only America’s hero, but Austrialia’s first major champion!
Walter Travis only gave golf 30 years of his life, but his contributions can be felt by everyone who has ever picked up a golf club. He was called the Old Man, but in reality he was Golf’s Renaissance Man.
This is one of the most fascianting episodes of the TalkinGolf History Podcast I have ever done – the story of one of Al Capone’s Hitmen, the man who likely designed the infamous St Valentine’s Day Massacre and the story of how he played in the 1933 Western Open at Olympia Fields…and was arrested on the course during the second round of play!
If that isnt good enough for you our guest John Fischer discusses his father, the last man to win a major championship using hickory shafted clubs, and for decades was responsible for setting the pins for the Masters. This episode is surely bound for the TGH Hall of Fame!!!
TalkinGolf History is proud to release Part 2 of the History of Olympia Fields Country Club, with special guests Bob Topel and Andy Staples.

A great conversation and a couple of laughs follow. As always…enjoy!
