“YOU ARE ALL THE WORLD TO ME. MY WHOLE LIFE IS CENTERED AROUND YOU & YOUR CHILDREN. IT'S ALL I LIVE FOR & NOT AN HOUR PASSES WITHOUT MY THOUGHTS AND LOVE BEING SENT TO YOU.”
-DONALD ROSS, IN A LETTER TO HIS DAUGHTER, DECEMBER, 1947
In the spring of 1899, the seaside Scottish village of Dornoch reluctantly bid farewell to a pragmatic visionary bound for America, where the game of golf was still a novel sport. Relocating proved to be a timely and propitious decision for this talented young highlander, who would go on to design or remodel over 400 golf courses across the United States and Canada. But success did not corrupt a modest, old-world ethos molded on the coast of the North Sea: Donald Ross's letters and diaries make clear that his greatest passion was always for his family. Today, we honor, preserve and protect our grandfather's legacy by forging alliances with like-minded individuals and organizations.
