Throughout 2023 we’ll be exploring the origins of area place names. Golf Club Road in Lacey is named for the Olympia Country and Golf Club, later the Mountain View Golf Course, that once existed at the current site of the Panorama retirement community. Pictured here are golfers at the starting tee. In the background is the clubhouse, which once was the homestead of settlers David and Elizabeth Harrison Chambers.
