    1916 Jim Barnes White Marsh Country Club Dinner Program. Jim Barnes won the first PGA Championship in 1916, held at Siwanoy Country Club in New York. At the time, Barnes was the head pro at the White Marsh Valley Country Club in Pennsylvania. At the end of the golf season on October 28th, 1916, Barnes' club members threw a grand party to celebrate their pro's great victory. This item is the menu from that function. The dinner festivities were held at the Bellevue-Stratton Hotel in Philadelphia. The menu lists the dinner fare and about 150 guests. Most interesting, however, is the photograph of the original Wannamaker Trophy, which at that time was brand new and still unadorned with any names - quite a contrast with today. 5 X 7 ½". The menu is in very good to excellent condition and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Jim Barnes' family.
