The Par-Links Golf Club was founded by fifteen African-American women golfers of the East Bay on September 12, 1958. The collection consists of one scrapbook documenting the first six years of the club’s existence from 1958-1963. It encompasses the bylaws of the Par-Links Golf Club, tournament committee reports, an application for membership form, a history of the organization, newspaper clippings, two studio photographs of the charter members, and nineteen photographs of the club participating in a golf tournament.
