This is Devereux Emmet, the designer of Dudley Hill Golf Club

Dudley Hill Golf Club was designed by one of the most famous golf architects of the early 20th century, Devereux Emmet. Emmet was born in Pelham, New York on December 11, 1861. A talented golfer in his own right, Emmet made the quarter-finals of the 1904 British Amateur and won the Bahamas Amateur at the age of 66. He began designing golf courses in the 1890s and designed an astonishing 150 throughout his career. Most of the courses he designed are in the state of New York. Others can be found in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Two courses are located outside of the United States. One in Bermuda and the other in the Bahamas. Horatio N. Slater, then president of the S. Slater & Sons Co., hired Emmet to build the course in 1925.
