  • Notes 
    • Joseph Dalgleish born 1860 in Aberlady, son of John Dalgleish, farm worker and his wife Margaret Ness. Joe's father died when he was an infant and his mother listed as a pauper in 1860, raised four children.

      In 1878, Joe Dalgleish joined the army, rising to the rank of sergeant in the 61st Brigade, Royal Scots Fusiliers. In 1882 he was posted to Zululand in South Africa and then transferred to the East Indies in 1885. He left the army and returned to Scotland in 1890 and was appointed clubmaker and professional at Nairn Golf Club. In 1900 he played in the Open Championship at St Andrews.

      His son William Dalgleish (1891-1976), also a clubmaker emigrated to America in 1911. The following year Joe and his youngest son James Clarke Dalgleish (1895-1970) sailed for America and were appointed to the Country Club of Troy in New York. Joe moved to Westfield Golf Club, later named Echo Lake Golf Club in Crawford, New Jersey (1921-23). William was appointed to Tacoma Golf and Country Club in Washington State, then in 1926 to Alderwood Country Club in Portland and two years later to Butte Country Club, Montana. Joe Dalgleish returned to Scotland and was living at 20 Darnell Road, Trinity Edinburgh. Recently two scared head woods made by Joe Dalgleish were auctioned at Sotherby's.
