Golfing, Bastrop State Park, c. 1934

National Park Service officials believed that building a golf course was not a "conservation" task, thus not a suitable use of CCC labor; however, they allowed the addition of such recreational facilities to a CCC developed park, if built by someone else. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) and its 1935 successor, the Works Progress Administration (WPA), added the golf course at Bastrop. This trio is aiming for the green in the background, over Lake Mina, a CCC feature.
