Dalhousie Offers Unique Experience

Within the hills of southeast Missouri, a truly unique lifestyle experience awaits. Set on a beautiful, 1,000-acre tract of land in the enchanting town of Cape Girardeau, the remarkable community of Dalhousie offers a unique combination of European roots, Southern grace, expert planning and world-class golf.
Boasting a name whose history goes back almost as far as the game of golf, it is fitting this Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course is one the best courses in Missouri. Rated the 48th best Residential Golf Course in the Country by Golfweek magazine, the par 72 course has already hosted many high profile championships, including the 2009 AJGA Rolex Tournament of Championships, which touted the top 80 junior golfers from throughout the world. It has also hosted five Missouri Golf Association Championships and is the host for the 2010 Missouri Senior Amateur Championship and the 2012 Missouri Amateur. The character of the 7,242-yard, core golf layout varies from the undulating terrain to the old-growth forest to spectacular water holes, while gnarly-edged bunkers, imaginative green complexes immaculate Zoysia fairways and large, rectangular bent grass tee boxes add dimension and challenge. A true masterpiece designed to stand the test of time, The Dalhousie Golf Club is undoubtedly one of the best courses in the Midwest.
Dalhousie is a private club that offers a unique National Golf Membership program, presenting an intriguing option for those living outside the Cape Girardeau area. Members of Dalhousie also have access to five on-site member cottages, as well as the “Dalhousie at Waters edge” which provides additional overnight accommodations, welcoming amenities, indoor and outdoor event pavilions and private access to 10 acres of well-stocked fishing ponds.
Dalhousie Golf Club is just one the many wonderful golf courses we have in Missouri. To see more about this wonderful and gorgeous place visit the Web site at Or, if you might be interested in taking a tour in person, contact them at 573-332-0818. I promise you one thing, once you play the course and take advantage of the cottages, you will be planning your next trip real soon.

Until I see you on the first tee!
