Again, Caves Valley is a possibility, despite the fact the Walker Cup historically is held on established courses.

Before coming to town late last week for the Chesapeake Cup tournament at Caves Valley Golf Club, A. Downing Gray, of Pensacola, Fla., had been in Baltimore only once, and it was memorable.Gray was a member of the 1965 United States Walker Cup team that managed a 12-12 tie with Great Britain and Ireland on the strength of some second-afternoon heroics that produced 6 1/2 wins in the final eight singles matches at Baltimore Country Club.This time, Gray, an insurance executive, came in as the non-playing captain of the U.S. Walker Cup team, having been selected for the position last January.
