Devil’s Elbow Soundex Code D140

The Devil’s Elbow was a dogleg that was found on the Birchwood Golf Club.

According to recollections the club was a 9-hole course and was located north of Rogers and south of Calvary Cemetery near Sheridan Road. It was recounted that Sheridan Road ran between the first and second holes and wasn’t much of a road back then. “The first hole started at about where is now Rogers Avenue and Sheridan Road and went north. The third tee must have been about where the gas station was (since replaced by town houses), and the fairway ran west, following the curve of the cemetery to form a dogleg we called the Devil’s Elbow.
