Walter_SpeedyWalter Speedy is an important gentleman when it comes to strides made for African American golfers.  Sometime prior to 1910, Speedy and several African American players organized an informal group called the Pioneer Golf Club. 

Later in 1910, Speedy and three other African American players sought to enter the Chicago Parks Championship Tournament at the public golf course, Jackson Park. Sadly, all golfers were barred from playing due to their race. 

Frustrated by the inability to compete against a wider range of golfers in formal tournaments, Speedy was among a group of African American men in 1915 who formed another group, called the Alpha Golf Club.
