Early golf legends, Bobby Jones and Francis Ouimet, played golf at Eastham's Cedar Bank Links, a private course that was constructed in the mid 1920's and existed until just after World War II. The course dominated the landscape that today is occupied by the Cape Cod National Seashore's visitor's center and the land surrounding Salt Pond. In fact, the parking lot of the visitor's center sits where the nineth hole use to be. The 17th green was near where the boathouses stand today. An interesting history of the Cedar Bank Links can be found on the Golf on Cape Cod website.
