This soup ladle comes with a bit of history. In 1959, Doris and Alfred Kaskel purchased acres of swampland in west Miami for about $49,000. In 1962, the Doral Hotel and Country Club (named from a combination of their names) opened their doors, welcoming golfers to the Blue, Red and Par 3 golf courses. That same year, the Kaskels hosted the Doral Open Invitational, Florida's first PGA event, benefiting the American Cancer Society. A tradition was born. The Blue Monster became one of the most famous golf courses in the world.
Fast forward to 2011. Donald Trump bought the Doral for $150 million. It's now called Trump National Doral Miami.
This soup ladle is from the old original Doral Country Club. It has probably served up millions of ladles of soup to hungry golfers.
The ladle is silver-tone, probably plated. It measures 9 1/2 inches long. The bowl is 2 3/8 inches across. The top of the handle is monogrammed with ~ D ~. The back is engraved DORAL. There's some pitting in the bowl with green spots showing through and a small split on the bowl edge...the scars of many years of slinging soup.
Still in very good condition, this souvenir of the original Doral makes it a conversation piece considering who owns the new Doral.
