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.)
