Daniel Wexler Book of Golfers has hiim as professional at Royal County Down for several years at the turn of the century.Surely an unusual name even then. Inspiration for Wodehouse's The Clicking of Cuthbert?Cuthbert Strachan Butchart (1876-1955)
I used to play Highgate quite a lot when I lived in London. I have a feeling he also worked on West Hill, one of my favourite Surrey courses. According to C&W he also designed the 2nd course at Royal County Down. Does anyone any other of his work, in Germany or the USA perhaps?
Looks like Cuthbert Butchart was responsible for Hessian Hills, a 9 holer that sat where the current Hudson National resides. The following blurb is from the November 21, 1928 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
