Peanuts—December 4, 1989

(Santa Rosa, CA) Sports were important to Charles Schulz, and golf was one of his favorite games.  From playing on his high school golf team to his late-in-life weekly foursome, Schulz not only enjoyed the game, but he excelled at it.  Snoopy even assumed the role of “World Famous Golf Pro” in the Peanuts comic strip.

Explore how Schulz portrayed golf in Peanuts in the Charles M. Schulz Museum’s newest exhibition, From Highland Park Caddy to Pebble Beach Celebrity: Schulz and the Game of Golf, running June 16 through October 10, 2010. On display will be Peanuts comic strips, photographs, Schulz’s memorabilia, and personal stories from Schulz’s golfing buddies.
