Family Helps J.C. Martin Golf Course

Posted: Updated:

A local family that is helping to fund the renovations at the city-owned J.C. Martin Golf Course today donated a unique gift to the 9-hole facility.

 The Rutkowski family gave the city a framed photograph and print signed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, a friend of Jim Rutkowski, Sr.

 The gift comes on the heels of a recent fundraising outgoing honoring the late Robert "Spider" Rutkowski. The event raised more than $50,000 for a short game practice facility at the course.

Jim Rutkowski, Jr. said "The reason we wanted to do this, is it was a way to give back to the community that was special to my uncle and our family."

 The three phase improvement project includes improved drainage and tees in addition to the practice facility.
