Our club captain had the pleasure of meeting and entertaining two members of the Dalhousie Golf Club, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, USA, on May 30. Dr Jay Sheets and his 17-year-old son Jordan both enjoyed the challenge of the Championship Course and also were keen to learn about the history of our club and to inspect (and photograph) some of our club treasures.
The American club, founded in 2002, is built on land which was settled by the sister of the then Earl of Dalhousie in the late 1700s - and so we share not just the Dalhousie name but also the proud connection with the Ramsays, the family name of the Earls of Dalhousie.
We hope the visit of Jay and Jordan will be the first of many connections with our American namesakes - and, who knows? Dalhousie members might, one day, take America by storm!
There is a direct link from this site to the website of the Missouri club which is well worth exploring.............
