Designed by Hugh Wilson and opened in 1912, the East Course of Merion Golf Club has had quite the history having been the home to multiple USGA championships.
The Golf Club is located in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
Similar to my other Philadelphia Golf Course aerial photos, this historic image was taken in 1950 (Black and White, USGS). The color aerial is a more recent image acquired in 2015 (ESRI).
Comparing the two aerials, it’s very easy to see that the golf course has remained consistent over the last 65 years and with minimal differences between the two. Many of the bunkers remain in their original location with only a few added.
