The golf field inside the present Diplomatic Club, one of the most select clubs in Bucharest, has an old history.
In 1923, the mayor of Bucharest, Dem. I. Dobrescu (also known as the “pickax mayor”), who used to say “I made a new city from an ancient trash”, offered the colonel Greble E.St.J. Junior, to Alexandru Marghiloman and other entrepreneurs he was associated with, a huge field. The field was swampy, situated in the north side of the capital and had an area of 45 hectars. The only condition the mayor imposed on his associated, was for them to clean the field and plant 22.000 trees.
