John Archibald "Jack" Park (1879-1935) was a Scottish professional golfer. Park placed sixth in the 1899 U.S. Open, held 14-15 September 1899, at Baltimore Country Club in Baltimore, Maryland. Park also finished tied for ninth place in the 1901 U.S. Open held at Myopia Hunt Club and tied for tenth at the 1915 U.S. Open.
At age 18, Park won an open tournament at Carnoustie in 1897. The field included James Braid, J.H. Taylor, Harry Vardon and Willie Fernie. In 1898 he emigrated to the United States to manage his brother's golf store at 25 W. 43rd Street, New York. He was head professional at Essex Country Club in New Jersey (1899-01), then went to Texas for a short period at Houston Country Club before going to Whitemarsh Country Club in Philadelphia where his tenure was from 1911-15.
His longest posting was at Maidstone Golf Club on Long Island from 1915-24. In 1924 Jack and his brother Willie upgraded the existing 18-hole Maidstone course to a 36-hole layout, part of which was destroyed in a 1938 hurricane. In its current 27-hole configuration the course continues to be listed among the top 70 courses in America. After leaving Maidstone, Park remained in the East Hampton area of New York where he worked at Amagansett Country Club in Amagansett, New York, until 1928.
Park died in 1935 at East Hampton, Suffolk, New York.
