A RICH HISTORY ON THE BANKS OF THE MISSISSIPPI
Since 1921, the Cape Girardeau Country Club has delivered the golf, dining and social activities to its members. The club’s rich history, friendly member-base, golf events for all ages, social parties, and dining options offer prospective members, both young and old, ample opportunity for enjoyment. The grounds also include a driving range and practice facilities, a swimming pool, fishing ponds and a variety of banquet/meeting spaces.
The date was April 3, 1921, a Sunday, and the place was the Cape Girardeau Country Club. That was when Fred A. Groves and Charles W. Boutin played the first official round of golf in Cape Girardeau. On that first day of golf in Cape Girardeau, Groves and Boutin played nine holes.
From that day forward, the Cape Girardeau Country Club has been the site for thousands of memorable rounds of golf. Over the many years the club has evolved and transitioned into a modern club, featuring 18 challenging holes of golf, swimming pool, dining options and many social events. While the property and clubhouse have changed over time, the club’s “family first” atmosphere has not.
