The person handling public relations for Tucan Golf & Country Club, located at the former Horoko Golf Course, contacted me today asking for background information on HOROKO. Not being a golfer, I have very little information on the subject but am interested also in anything you might recall or have that be useful, particularly on the following questions.
1. Who designed/built the course?
2. When was it built?
3. Were there any "tournaments" at the course?
4. Where could one get photos of high-ranking officers playing golf there?
Please pass anything you might have on this to me and, if desired, also directly to Jane Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. As I said, I am also interested in such info to add to what little I have on HOROKO for my new website.
If anyone is interested in the Tucans project, its website is http://www.tucancountryclub.com/pages/1/index.htm.
P.S. Bob Askew: Do you have an email address for Robert Moreland/ I have heard of him, but do not know him. My brother-in-law, who used to work at Rodman (now in Spain) mentioned Moreland as a source of information on HOROKO. Thanks.
