2 On Southern Alberta s Golf News Wyre s Rants It s hard to believe that another golf season is coming to a close For those of us not lucky enough to be heading south for an extended period it leaves only a few short days to get our fix until we re forced to hibernate and think of what s to come while zoned out on the Golf Channel This also brings an end to the first year of The Fore One One When I embarked on this I had no idea how it would be received To my surprise there are a number of people in Southern Alberta who want to know what else is going on in the golf world outside their own club Thanks to all of you who took the time to check us out and to comment in person or by email or social media Your thoughts resonate greatly with me and let me know we re on the right track Thanks as well to all the local clubs Without the pros superintendents and managers who took time out of their busy days to let me have a peek at what they do day in and day out and who let us keep our publication in their pro shops locker rooms and restaurants The Fore One One wouldn t be possible With a whole winter to think about stories I know next year will be even better Make sure to check out our upcoming sports magazine Windy City Sports located throughout Southern Alberta and online See you in April The last week in September was a tough one for golf as we lost a living legend Arnold Palmer Palmer s legacy is immense and the respect that today s players have for him is apparent as they all refer to him as Mr Palmer From being the face of golf in the early stages of television to being one of the pioneers in sports management to convincing pro golfers to cross the ocean and play the British Open when it was more of a nuisance to many Palmer s legacy in sports is huge But he was more than that He told players to sign their names legibly so young fans would always recognize who they met Large portions of the warehouses which contain his memorabilia house the letters postcards and gifts sent to him from fans he kept them all Even though he was a great sportsman Arnold Palmer was a better representative as a human In this day of huge money and me first players Palmer s legacy still shines bright Numbers remain solid for area tracks Continued from Page 1 It was great said Moulton of his inaugural season It was way better than we all expected and everything was way up At the Bow Island Golf Club manager Lowell Leffler says the wacky weather affected their numbers but things still were good It just seemed like it rained every weekend said Leffler Luckily we got all our tournaments in which helps things out In Picture Butte first time head 305 6th Street S Lethbridge AB 403 942 0477 jwalkergolf com professional Jamie Gerlitz also enjoyed his first season at the helm There were definitely some added responsibilities and expectations he said of his promotion But it s really a good problem to have Gerlitz also pointed out the issues the inconsistent weather caused although Butte s numbers remained strong We started off with a bang but then the poor weather kind of put a damper on everything Get all your local golf news at TheForeOneOne com
