The Huots family story

With the Royal Quebec Golf Club being conveniently located across the street from the Huot household, all eight Huot boys — Emmanuel, Jules, Maurice, Ulric, Rodolphe, Roland, Benoit and Tony — at one point marched across to work as caddies and help their family financially.

The hours spent at the club, watching and learning from members, developed their love for the game. And though they each gained local and provincial acclaim as players, it was Jules (second from right) who enjoyed the most success.

He captured three Quebec Open and PGA of Canada championships, five Quebec PGA Championships and twice finished as low Canadian pro at the Canadian Open. However, winning the PGA Tour’s 1937 General Brock Open and playing in three Masters are career highlights.
