In July 1919 the Weekly Journal-Miner newspaper announced a 2,809-yard, par 36, nine-hole golf course was being constructed at the target range at Whipple Barracks. The golf course was described as one of the “sportiest” links with an abundance of natural hazards. Prairie dog holes, brush, cactus and other numerous breaks in the ground made it difficult to play. Greens were constructed of special sand, oiled and rolled. When the War Department transferred operations of Whipple Barracks to the U.S. Public Health Service in 1920, the golf course and target range were no longer used. The land was turned over to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
