Maylie Holt

TMGP: What/who got you started into the game of golf?

Alex Ciaramitaro

TMGP: Who got you started in golf?

Alex: My dad was the person who taught me how to play golf. He actually used to take me out onto a baseball field behind our house and set up a flag in the middle of the diamond and we would hit iron shots and chip shots at it when I was about 3-4 years old.

John Utley

TMGP: Who got you started into the game of golf?

John: My father was the one who introduced me to golf. He has always been a fierce competitor and from the first time he played golf around age 30 he was hooked. At that time we lived 30 minutes from the nearest course so some days he would drive up and walk 45 holes. When I was 6 he moved us from Thayer, MO to West Plains, MO where the course was and he still lives there today. I was given my first set of clubs at age 6 and started playing tournaments at age 8.

Robert Martin

TMGP: Can you describe your best moment or day on the golf course?

Robert: 2003 Columbia Senior Championship, A. L. Gustin Golf Course. I birdie 17 & 18 to shoot 66 (my age) and win my second Championship. It could also be the night that I was inducted into the Columbia Golf Foundation Hall of Fame.

Dean Gregory

TMGP: What/who got you started into the game of golf?

Dean: I started playing golf in my early 40s when my three children were young. It was the only sport that I required them to learn because I didn’t want them to be as bad as I was. Also, I saw the game as an important part of doing business and succeeding in life. They now all play and my two youngest now play on the high school golf team I coach.

Richard King

TMGP: Can you describe your best moment or day on the golf course?

Richard: Any day that it is 70 degrees outside and I’m not in my office. It’s preferably, golfing with good friends.

Karen Johnson

TMGP: Can you describe your best moment or day on the golf course?

Karen: I spent some time serving as a nurse anesthetist in the Gulf War back in 1990-91, and after I came home, the first day that I could, I got in my car and drove to the nearest golf course. The grass was so green and it was peaceful. I played the entire 18 holes with my senses on fire…. Playing golf that day was the best therapy a girl could ask for and I’ll never forget it.
