Morse, Samuel F.B. - Framed Autograph

Samuel F.B. Morse (1885-1969) "The Duke of Del Monte"

In 1916, Samuel Morse was made manager of the Pacific Investment Company, in charge of liquidating some of their assets. He was charged with making the Pebble Beach area profitable in order to find a buyer. He decided to create a one-of-a-kind golf course with unsurpassed scenic beauty and an element of difficulty that would always be challenging. To keep costs down he hired two amateur golfers, Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, to design the course at no charge. Shortly after the course opened in 1919, he founded Del Monte Properties Company and bought the property himself. He headed the golfing empire for 50 years until his death in 1969. He was a distant cousin of Samuel Morse who invented the telegraph and Morse code.
