| CHAPTER TWO | The SWAT – WhereAbouts | Steel City, PA
“We play The SWAT on every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and whatever Monday holiday we may have. Everybody calls in before noon, and then from noon to 1 o’clock, The SWAT committee makes up the teams. It’s one best ball of that group, in the hole, no handicaps. And it’s a match play against all the other teams.”
– Team Titleist Member Chick Wagner

History of The SWAT
Why is this game called The SWAT? No one knows. Oakmont Country Club Founder H.C. Fownes not only designed and built a world-renowned course in 1903, he also teed it up in The SWAT. The club’s membership has preserved the records of The SWAT with hard-bound ledgers that go back to the 1950s. And the game remains as competitive as its storied history.

“The SWAT is the best game in the states, maybe the world, because it creates such great camaraderie amongst everybody.”
