The original Stranahan Estate included a nine-hole putting green in the front yard. R. A. Stranahan and his son Frank honed their golf skills by dropping balls in the grassy oval inside the driveway and chipping them onto the putting The lady of the house, Page green.

Stranahan, and Frank's wife Ann were also well-respected local golfers. While the Stranahan family boasted many accomplished golfers, Frank Stranahan was by far the best. Tutored by golf legend Byron Nelson, Frank placed second in the Masters Tournament and the British Open as an amateur in the 1940s. His finish in the Masters remains the best ever for an amateur in that prestigious tournament. (Marker Number 6.)
