Bartholomew Golf Course

At a time when most blacks could only work to clean up golf courses, Bartholomew was not only an avid golfer, but a golf course architect.

Bartholomew Municipal Golf Course in Pontchartrain Park, which he also designed for African American golfers, stands a testament to his passion to make the game available for everyone but we knew that having had such a deep history of this course and the Pontchartrain Park neighborhood as well as the African American golfer in New Orleans this was the only course they could play play at in the 50’s, and although the men could go to other courses, this was still their home.”
