Charlotte Empringham describes taking golf lessons as a child at Cedarhurst golf club on Saturday mornings while parents went golfing. There were between twenty and thirty children in attendance, and the instructor, Burt, was an old Scottish pro. Katherine Mitchell, a longtime resident of the area, came up with the idea of an inter-club ladies golf group between Cedarhurst, the Briars, Eastbourne, and Orchard Beach named the Mitchell Inter-Club Golf group. The Mitchell Inter-Club Golf Tournament began in 1962 and would end with a lunch at one of the member's homes, with a staple food of chicken salad with green grapes served at every lunch. Eventually the lunches changed from taking place in people's homes to at each club, but the tournament still occurs today after a unanimous decision to continue it as the original 9-hole tournament.
