“It took someone with particular knowledge and skills to produce such a product. Knowledge of golf and country clubs was paramount, followed closely by acquaintance with source material for such a book, together with access thereto. You exhibited these qualities to an unusual degree.
“Your approach and friendly disposition, your cooperation with the Board of Directors of the club, the general manager, and other staff, as well as the Heritage Committee, and with Mrs. Neher and me in particular, made for a smooth operation from beginning to end.
“On my behalf and that of the Heritage Committee, thank you so much for a job very well done, on time, and under budget.”
—R. Eugene Neher, Chairman, CHCC Heritage Committee
“As president of Cherry Hills, I had the opportunity and pleasure to work with George. We found his enthusiasm to be infectious and his ability to capture the rich tradition of our Club to be a unique talent. George was well qualified and professional in his approach, and Cherry Hills is indebted to George and his team for producing an exceptional history of the club.”
— Richard G. McClintock, President, Cherry Hills Country Club, 1997
“Thank you for the lovely book on Cherry Hills Country Club. It is beautifully illustrated, and I found particularly interesting the chapter on Eisenhower’s relationship with the club. The John Culbreath memoir of Ike’s early golfing experiences in Denver provides new, important information on Eisenhower’s travels to Colorado before the war. Frankly, I had a difficult time surrendering the book to our librarian!”
— James W. Leyerzapf, Archivist, Dwight D. Eisenhower Library, Abilene, Kansas

— David Rickman, Rules Secretary, Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland
