DescriptionPostcard of the clubhouse of the Kansas City Country Club
Historical ArticleA committee of young golf enthusiasts who played on a cow-pasture course in old Westport's Hyde park, set out by bicycle to find a permanent sit. They picked Seth Ward's east pasture at Fifty-second and Broadway in 1896, built the clubhouse at the left for the Kansas City Country club, incorporated by:

Hugh C. Ward, Chas F. Morse, Jefferson Brumback, H. L. Harmon, A. W. Childs, C. J. Hubbard, J. E. Logan, Gardiner Lathrop, St. Clair Street, Ford Harvey, E. H. Chapman, E. S. Washburn, and W. B. Clarke.

Social activities and golf occupied the 275 members. The Ward heirs canceled the lease in 1925, and the club moved to 62nd street and Indian lane.

Part of the old golf course was bought by the late Mrs. Jacob Leander Loose and given to the city as Loose park in her husband's memory.
