Who would have known that a committee of two formed in 2004 would grow into a group of four and finally a friendship of six club members who would put together a centennial year that was exhilarating and challenging, sometimes very frustrating, but most often rewarding. Our love of El Paso Country Club encompasses at least 221 years of membership among us. By the end of 2006, our centennial year, the friendship was still active, but the committee was totally exhausted even though the “grand finale,” the book, had barely been started. With perseverance, several members of the

committee continued on to the end. None of this would have been accomplished without the wholehearted support of the Board of Governors of 2005 through 2008. A special thanks goes to past presidents John Long and Paul Dudley and current president Ed Santamaria. In addition, through ups and downs, this book has always had the backing of club general manager Bill Dahlberg.
Many thanks go to J. P. Hayes, Kristi Albers, Bill Dahlberg, Vern Banes, Cliff Eisenberg, Chris Hunt, Mary Hoover, Carolyn and Walter Driver, Blaine McNutt, Don Henderson, Ed Davis, John Thompson, Jim Tritton, Bill Eschenbrenner, Mike McQueen, and John Folmer, who wrote or provided information for our many sidebars. Our prime source of photographs came from Don Van Pelt’s collection, archives at El Paso Country Club, and Bill Eschenbrenner. Thanks
also to Laura Borsch, the Kahn family, Mary Hoover, Mike Daeuble, Gibbs Taylor, Walter and Carolyn Driver, Dub and Irma Yowell, and the Frank Redman family for images. The archives of the El Paso Times and the El Paso Herald Post were of great value. Please accept our apology if we failed to acknowledge someone’s gift of material or time.
The staff members of El Paso Country Club were always there for us. Many times we needed immediate help, and there they were. Special thanks goes to Brenda Waters-Livingston, Margarita Sierra, and Azeneth Aleman. Always supportive in the food and memories department was Dieter Gerards.

Catherine Crowell CagleCo-author Catherine Crowell Cagle represents a third-generation
El Paso Country Club member. Most of her friends and family call her “Cata” and she holds memories as a child and a former member of the Club dear to her heart. She grew up at the El Paso Country Club…from celebrating birthdays to being presented as a debutante and then onto her wedding reception in the historic ballroom.
Cata is the author of the El Paso Country Club’s eighty-fifth anniversary booklet, and her articles have appeared in several Southwest publications such as New Mexico Magazine. She was a 1983 graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso’s Creative Writing program, and wrote her final paper on “Historic Homes of El Paso.”
Cata is especially proud of being an El Pasoan and a part of the El Paso Country Club’s legacy. It is rare when she gets on the driving range, but she will always remember that the grass is not always greener on the other side of Montoya Street. She reminds herself to look beyond into the deep West Texas sky.
She lives in Austin, Texas, and is the mother of three sons, Travis, and twins, Stanton and Walker.
