'Sensation at Salem' dives into Zaharias' 1954 triumph at Salem Country Club


Larrabee, who has written a number of books on North Shore golf history (’The Green and Gold Coast’ and a history of Salem Country Club) and is working on centennial books on both Kernwood Country Club and Rockport Country Club, is happy with his finished work and the response he’s gotten. The half-dozen members at Salem CC who helped fund the project (”they served as my angels,” he said) are also pleased with the end result.

“It’s a book not just about recounting the week and Babe’s win,” said Larrabee, “but a look at a great athlete and woman who has been dead for almost 60 years. “I’ve really tried to capture the history of the event in this fashion, and I’m very happy with it.”
