Le Sueur News-Herald wrote back in 1949 a history of our clubs inception in 1926…
By that time there were twenty-five willing to put in a little money and a lot of time. First thing was to get out there with hoes, pitchforks, and get the corn stalks off the ground and burned. Along came Ebbie Gilbertson, who had played a lot of golf before moving to Le Sueur, and to him was delegated the job of laying out the nine holes. That done and sand and a tin cup added to each “green,” Le Sueur golf club was ready for business, and it did a surprisingly good business, too, as more and more persons became interested in the great national outdoor pastime.
The Le Sueur golf course is not simply a good place to play golf. It is a place where friends can meet in a social way, enjoy good food in most pleasant surroundings. In short it gives to our little community a meeting place for all the folks of the Minnesota river valley, a folksy place where all feel at home where all are neighbors and friends.”
