High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - December 6, 1925, High Point, North Carolina Mich Point Enterprise sunday. December 6, i92i Page a respect is Bright for ejection of a resort hotel at Sedgefield soon the possibilities of Sedgefield As in All around the year resort have caught the attention of prominent astern men with the result that Tho original Sedgefield plan is being greatly broadened. It looks now is if there May be located at this Beauty spot in the Center of tote Carolina Equi Distant from greens Isioro and High Point and not far Rora Winston Salem a Center of Octal and recreational activity thai will bring further renown to this Region. The late Luther Coble saw this possibility two years ago but the development of Sedgefield up to recently has proceeded along the line of a suburban Home Community and country club. It was the Beauty of the Sedge Tlell Golf course and the unusually attractive atmosphere of Sedgefield Manor that originally got the attention of Frank h. Anderson president of the Continental hotels company of new York City but his first glimpse of the development did not impress him with the possibilities of a resort hotel. Since that time or. Anderson has travelled North Carolina Over and Over several times and has Analysed the possibilities of its climate Scenic attractions and varied resources with the result that he Lias interested himself in the promotion of hotel properties at Sedgefield. Lake lure and Tryon and has become firmly convinced that year around resort communal Ries can be created at each of these Points where hotels and other enterprises can be conducted at a Radical reductions monday tuesday in Fine and fashionable Coats a i handsomely furred a beautifully silk lined. shades newest materials latest to models reduced to s25.00 and $35.00 All sales final to exchanges Moffitt s 217 North main St. T profit. A group of Triangle business men working with or. Anderson in the development of this idea have found several interesting possibilities in connection with a resort hotel at Sedgefield. A to summer activity and summer business there has been no question. The daily visits of members of Sedgefield country club and other residents of the Triangle territory would be augmented All through the summer by motorists and Golf enthusiasts from the nearby towns and from cities As far away As Raleigh Charlotte Lynchburg and Asheville. Or. Anderson says flatly however that his company would never become interested in a resort hotel operating on a three months season and it is the potentialities of Sedge fled As a Winter resort too that have captured his enthusiasm. At a meeting in Greensboro this week or. Anderson said a a you men cannot realize the tremendous possibilities in the Stream of tourist travel that Ponds daily along the Road from Greensboro South. All that needs to be done is to excite the curiosity of these tourists to Stop them Long enough to learn what you have Here and to Send them away advertising this Community. A a i understand that it is certain that the Road Between Greensboro and High Point is to be made a Boulevard 30 feet wide and lighted at night from one end to the other. This alone will excite curiosity and make people inquire what is the unusual feature of this Vicinity. A a then As they near Sedgefield their attention will be called to the Sedgefield Tea Garden. Sedgefield inc., is planning and will have in operation within a Short time a Tea Garden and Tea House Between the Stone Entrance and exit to the Manor of unique design suggestive of an old English Wayside inn where intelligent women will serve Sedgefield Dairy products and other delicious food to All who Stop and will take the Opportunity to Tell them of the wonderful Golf course and other attractions of the property. Many of them will drive through the grounds and go away impressed with the Beauty of the scenery the excellence of the Golf course and the statistics that they will be Given about the All the year around climate. A a golfers and Hunters living in the North and East will be informed that they can hop a Ira in in new York City at 6 30 a rn., step off the train at Sedgefield right after breakfast Aud be playing Golf or starting out for a Days Hunt by 9 a in. It will be a revelation to these people to know that they can get South so conveniently and at Scudi a Moderato expense for a weeks Golling Abd Hunting. A the place would naturally become a renter for horse lovers and will be the most convenient place for Field trials dog and horse shows Polo Golf and Tennis tournaments. A a All that this situation needs is a first class hotel. Our company can see an operating profit in a hotel of unique design High class food and service which will House and take care of the Sedgefield country club in such a Way that it will have no club House investment nor overhead expense of keeping up quarters and which will become the social and recreation Center for this whole territory As Well As attracting visitors from far and wide. A in fact through our great hotel units in Tho big Northern cities and through our connections with Large hotels in Florida we can Send Large numbers of our clientele to hotels at Tryon Chimney Rock and the Continental proposition has caused so much enthusiasm among the directors of Sedgefield country club that a special committee Lias been appointed to work to awards getting a Lionel financed and in operation by next fall. Belief in or. Andersons ideas of an All the year around resort hotel has been inspired by a study of the operation of successful Winter resorts at White Sulphur Springs hot Springs Van a and Rayon n. C., where the hotels Are full to overflowing in the Winter season. None of these places has As Good a Golf course As Sedgefield. None has a better Winter climate. The slightly higher Elevation of these places does make them somewhat colder in the Winter and not a great Deal cooler than Sedgefield in the summer. Pinehurst is in a class by itself As a Winter resort and yet its climate is Little different than ours Here in Greensboro and in summer there is no comparison. Cambridge. Mass the custom of picking All american football teams in the words of the Harvard Crimson under graduate daily a a is the last stage of that cheap aggrandizement through newspaper publicity which tends to create in students minds a false sense of values.
