Future Masters Tournament Namesake Gets Ready For The Opening Round!

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) – It was the calm before the storm today at the Dothan Country Club, as the final group of junior golfers hit the course for a practice round.

The Dothan Country Club was established on March 6, 1923, shortly after golf enthusiast Patrick B. Jones arrived in town with a set of clubs. He was able to persuade a few of his acquaintances of the joys of golf.

The current Clubhouse was inaugurated in 1957. The Golf and Fitness Building was opened in 1989.

Currently, Club facilities provide a vast array of services. A number of private event rooms are suitable for formal dinner parties, social gatherings, business meetings, and à la carte meals. In addition, the Facility has a cocktail lounge, a Tartan Lounge at the 19th hole, six tennis courts, two pickleball courts, a swimming pool, a health club, and an 18-hole golf course.

The Club is a place of fellowship where members can meet friends and satisfy their personal and business entertainment amid an air of elegance. Certainly, the diversity and caliber of the membership and the array of amenities provide many opportunities for business and personal camaraderie in a cordial and friendly environment.

There are several Wiregrass natives competing in the 15-18 age group in this year’s Press Thornton Future Masters including tournament namesake Luke Thornton.

Luke has only played in the event a handful of times despite spending his entire life around the Future Masters.

Now, Luke enjoys playing in the Future Masters as a way to honor his late grandfather Dr. Press Thornton.

Thornton remarked, “It’s amazing to consider how many great players come here to play each year and the opportunity it affords you.” “It’s cool to be included and to have my name on it. You know, for Doc’s sake.”
