The Watson Brothers of Minneapolis

In June 2018, GHS member Joe Gladke published an article in the Hennepin History Magazine about the Watson brothers who were golf professionals at the early Minneapolis Golf Club. The Watsons were among the early wave of Scottish golf professionals to seek employment in the U.S. during the sport’s rise in popularity in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Joe loves writing about topics that have not been previously covered and the Watson brothers clearly fit that description. His article explores the brothers, their work in and around Minneapolis and their association with the famous Minikahda Country Club.
