G3 Golf loses a friend of golf and mentor, Thanks Bob Molinaro

Mase and the golf community has lost a great friend and golf FAN in Bob Molinaro.  I loved the comments from his closest friends, Mr. Sulentic said he was “cantankerous” and Mr. Den Hartog “love-hate relationship” and this was from his closest friends.  We will all miss his contributions to golf–irrigation systems in Waterloo Muni’s (bet you are glad you have them now with our drought year, just asking), Waterloo Open with the winner receiving over $50K the past few years and more contributions than can be mentioned, mostly unknown.  He was a business partner of mine in the 90’s when everyone laughed at us for building a family golf center with and executive golf course in 1992.  Seems as if that is the focus now.  But he believed in two PGA Pro’s, Mark Lemon and Greg Mason and we thank him for that.  So thank you Bob Molinaro, though you had a different golden rule, we both thought the same way.  RIP.

In state Rivalries are over until Basketball in the Cedar Valley of Iowa

  That’s right now ISU can chase Big 12 title, Iowa chase Big 10 title, UNI chase MVC and NATIONAL TITLE.  So while you wait go play some golf at Legend Trail Golf in Parkersburg, Waverly Golf in Waverly and All Golf Center in Waterloo and they are all in Iowa.  Don’t waste a day because it could be snowing.  Way to go Panthers.

That time of year in the Cedar Valley of Iowa, Harvest

 That is right, please be aware of our farming friends as they have begun harvesting.  I know sometimes you get stuck behind a tractor or a combine.  Please think of safety first when you are passing them.  These men and women have a job to do just the job you are speeding to get to.  So as Coach Hayden Fry had on the helmets, ANF, America Needs Farmers.  We do also, but we also need you so be smart during the harvest time.
