Frances G. Trimble is a sixth generation Texan with family roots that stretch to the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri and the Canary Islands. History is ingrained in her. She's a member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and the First Families of Tennessee.
Her passion for history is also reflected in writing about golf.
Featured in the May, 2010 issue of Golf World Magazine was a column written by Trimble describing a course laid out for an exhibition round of golf in San Antonio in 1887, a year prior to the documented existence of golf in Yonkers, NY.
Was golf played elsewhere in America prior to 1887?
"Probably, yes," says Trimble, adding, "I just have not found the evidence yet."
Trimble is Historian Emeritus of the Texas Golf Hall of Fame, and in October 2010 she was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the category of service to golf.
