In 1945, Paul Goldstein played baseball for Yale as a first year medical student. Subsequently, he began playing golf in 1947 and received lessons from Joe Sullivan. He remembers the lessons were given in an area between the second and fourth green, and they consisted of learning the motion of pitching a softball underhanded. The course was hard and fast because it lacked irrigation; after rain it became wet because of poor drainage. He believes the most significant change to the course was the elimination of the rock cliff on hole 17 across the pond from the tee.
