Are you ready for some of this WHITE STUFF here in Iowa?  I AM NOT READY FOR IT.  It does look like it is heading our way tonight and tomorrow.  With our LACK OF SNOW – be sure to be safe and allow more time to drive as those new AND old drivers may not be ready for the slick streets yet.

No snow days so far – that is a positive note for our Iowa golf courses.  Gets those golfers on the golf course sooner rather than the 4th of July.  LOL!

This video was from the Winter of 2014 while our daughter, Stephanie, videotaped from our garage.  Then being the joker that I am I had to HIT HER WITH A LITTLE SNOW each time.

We decided to take a little time off from writing on our…

over the Christmas and Holiday Break.  But we are recharged and ready to start engaging you at the Waverly Golf Course like we did the past few winters.

I did look at one of our golf friends, voice of the Panthers – Gary “THE SPORTS GUY” Rima newest website.  Pretty good stuff on all things in Iowa sports.  Put it on your favorite list.

 

One more week

One more week

IMG_3157  Terri and I are empty nesters so we went small this year – little tree by the TV.  Do you suppose she put it there to remind me that it was Christmas?

So just like Terri, little things come in BIG packages – including the Spirit of Christmas.  It is the thought that counts – correct?

  • The spirit is BIG in our hearts as we celebrate Christ’s Birth

It is hard to believe but only one more week until Christmas Day.  As we get older it sure seems as if the time just flies by from year to year.  So enjoy them as much as one can.

So don’t forget to get out and buy that last minute gift for that person dear to your heart.  For all those “secret Santa’s” in the world, be nice to each other – treat other’s as you wish to be treated.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Unsung PGA Tour Player Fred Hawkins passes

Unsung PGA Tour Player Fred Hawkins passes

1476312_profile_pic  We send this as one of our good friends and fellow Iowa Section of the PGA Member – Joe Hawkins Hawk lost his father Fred Hawkins on December 6th.

Fred was a 62 year member of the PGA of America and a professional since 1947.  He played in the era of Snead, Hogan and that fun era of golf that many of us could only dream about.  Driving from tour stop to tour stop.

Fred played for 19 years on the PGA Tour -winning two times including a runner up finish in the 1958 Masters to Arnold Palmer.  He was well known for his close finishes as he finished second 27 times and third 19 times.

Fred was known for being a great driver of the golf ball and for his uncanny ability to get it up and down from everywhere.

For those of us that had the privilege to play golf with Fred – he was was still shooting his age well into his nineties by showing that awesome short game of his.

Please keep Joe and his family in your thoughts and prayers.  Thanks Fred for being a friend of golf for so many years.

Planning on a Charitable Donation for 2014? 2015?

logo-200px1  “Tis the season for being thankful and giving.  So here are a couple of thoughts for you as you end 2014 and start 2015.

Did you know that the…

its PGA Members and facility patrons – LIKE YOU.  Donate more money towards charitable work than any other industry?  Mostly through the golf outings and functions that we run at our golf facilities throughout the State of Iowa and the USA.

Whether it is a larger golf function that may raise over a million dollars to the little golf outings at our local facilities for charities like Diabetes, MS, MD, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Breast Cancer and many more that you can think of that we can’t even begin to list.

So as you begin your year end planning or 2015 charitable giving – please look at these two foundations that are right here in Iowa.  Led by the…

we have two that help give scholarships, assist Injured Veterans and Help our Youth get introduced to the game.

If you have any questions on how to donate and what these two deserving charities do?  Give Mase a call – 319-230-4934 or email me at allgolfg@aol.com.

Thanks and it always feels better to give than receive.
