Talk this Friday (12th October)

Carnoustie Golf Club is delighted to be hosting W J Dettlaff this Friday evening and hope you can join us on the night…

A Talk By W J Dettlaff , USPGA Master Professional & Retired Manager of TPC Sawgrass.

Join Billy – 12th October – 6.30 for 7:00pm at The Carnoustie Golf Club where he will give a talk based on his latest publication ‘Doctors of the Game’, a history in the formation and spread of golf to the ‘New World’. His book represents a near seven-year study into the game’s history from the unique perspective of the golf profession.

Billy’s talk begins with the game’s early history and formation of a series of supportive trades. These include club and ball making, the caddie position, keeper of the green, and the eventual combination with the premier playing skills of St. Andrews’ Allan Robertson, which led to his recognition as the first golf professional.

He traces the efforts of early professionals from St. Andrews, Musselburgh, North Berwick, Carnoustie, Prestwick and Dornoch, detailing how the game first grew in Scotland, spreading to England, and then to the world with its greatest early influencers all from Scotland.

Results from his detailed research have uncovered that the first Scottish professionals of the 1840s are directly traced through at least nine generations of influence on the golf profession in the United States.
