It would take until 1953 before the first nationally televised Golf tournament. It was the Tam O'Shanter World Championship, played just outside Chicago and televised by ABC. But get this - the owner of the club paid ABC to televise the tournament! The US Open tournament was televised nationally, across the U.S., for the first time in 1954. In 1977, all 18 holes of each of the final two rounds were broadcast live for the first time. And in 1982, all four rounds were televised for the first time.

When did the nfl start televising regional games?

It was 1962 when CBS and the NFL agreed on a contract to televise all games played. However, games have been televised as far back as 1939 with a game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Brooklyn Dodgers being the first game to be televised by a major network (NBC). In 1950, the Los Angeles Rams and the Washington Redskins were the first teams to have all of their games televised in their local market and many other teams had contracts to televise some of their games that season.

Is the Dorset field club the oldest golf course in vt?

Yes. Moreover, its the oldest golf club at its original course. 9 holes are evident from a course map dated 1886. Golf 1st was played their 5 years sooner just not on a "course". This answer is incorrect with respect to the oldest existing golf club with continuous golf at the same location. The Edgewood Club of Tivoli in Tivoli NY was founded in 1884 and has had golf continuously since then.
