President John F. Kennedy
Best of our Presidential golfers


President Kennedy, considered the best of our Presidential golfers sported a 7 handicap at the peek of his golfing career. Known for his ability to pull off some miraculous recovery shots President Kennedy earned a the reputation of a strong competitor early in his golfing career leading Harvard past Yale in a heavily contested collegiate golf match.

When playing golf with his father and brothers JFK preferred playing at Hyannisport Golf Club and Palm Beach Golf Club. As a US Senator and President he was certainly no stranger to Burning Tree Club and Chevy Chase Clubs in Maryland.

President Taft on the essence of golf: "I donít know of any game that is so provocative of profanity as golf. I donít know any game that makes one so ashamed of his profanity."  Makes you wonder what former Navy man President John F. Kennedy's favorite quotes were.
