WaverlyGCLogoColorfinal  Can you believe that we are hosting the 81st Annual Waverly Men’s Invitational?  Yep this event started in 1933.  We have had guys like MIKE BENDER, PGA, yep that guy, the dude that coaches Zach Johnson.  That was his LAST AM WIN before he turned professional.

We will have 176 players tee it up for two days of golf at the Waverly Golf Course.  The players play 18 holes of golf on Saturday – then we flight them for Sunday’s round of golf based on Saturday’s round.

We will crown an Open Division Champion and our 2nd ever Senior Champion.

Should be fun!

Great to be a part of GIVE Foundation

Wonderful to be a part of golf that assist others in life.  Had our board meeting today at Riverside for the…

Thanks to the Kehl family, the VA, the Iowa PGA and all that have assisted over the years to not only impact Veterans lives BUT their families.  We changed the Mission Statement to include the families as our Leader, Jim Dickerson, PGA and retired Military, said we are doing as much for the Veterans as the families.

Did you know that Jim Dickerson retired from the military and then the next day applied to be a PGA Apprentice?  He is now a PGA Members.  Now he has combined BOTH passions – military and the PGA – as our lead instructor at the GIVE.

FEAR?  Two 12 Year olds REMINDED ME why GOLF is so GREAT

FEAR? Two 12 Year olds REMINDED ME why GOLF is so GREAT

IMG_0264  Two 12 year olds reminded ME today WHY Golf is the greatest sport.  It is also a game of a lifetime.  You may not see this on the basketball court, soccer pitch, ball diamond or on the gridiron.

THESE 12 year olds inspired a PGA Pro to near tears today.  I was so proud of them and Sam.


  • You are 10 years old
  • Never played in a Golf Tournament

Definition of fear?

Like going on your first date.  Driving a car for the first time.  YOU NAME IT, IT HAS FEAR involved.  Sam was NOT wanting to play.

But he needed to play 9 holes of golf and turn in a scorecard in order to qualify for the State Event at Lake Panorama National Golf Course

Sam Butler from Mason City (pictured) is that 10 year old.  The two 12-year olds, Joe Dean and Charlie Lorenz from Cedar Falls INSPIRED ME TODAY.  Sam and Joe had to play 18 holes from the White Tees to qualify for our

Sam had to play 9 holes from the red tees, BUT REMEMBER, it was his first event.  For those three and the parents that witnessed the 9 holes played by that threesome.  CLASS is all I can say about Joe (left) and Charlie (right).


They helped Sam along for the whole 9 holes.  Encouraged him.  Assisted him via the Rules of Golf.  AND IF YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE…any GOLFER would have been proud (some of you would be embarrassed as YOU would not have acted like these two 12-year olds did) to watch how GOLFERS HELP EACH OTHER.

Though we battle each on the course WE FEEL EACH OTHER’S PAIN and Joe and Charlie remembered that they had played THEIR FIRST TOURNAMENT not too long ago.

Thank you to Joe and Charlie for showing that MAN KIND is KIND and especially on the golf course.
