Pawleys Plantation: Men's results Feb. 3
Seventy-two members and friends participated in a Texas Scramble in a memorial tribute to Larry “Double Ace” Kolman.
Kolman, the former president of the men's group, passed away Dec. 17. Donations were collected and presented to Nancy Kolman for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Family Justice Center of Georgetown.
Kolman was a true friend to all and his fun spirit, good humor, and signature pony tail have been sorely missed by his playing partners.
When the Texas Scramble was completed, a luncheon was held at the club in his honor to reminisce and recall the many Larry stories that will live on. Kolman was always proud to have aced the island green 13th hole at Pawleys twice. Therefore, after the luncheon everyone reassembled by the 13th green.
Gil Goldsmith, Kolman's successor as the men's group p0resident, gave a short eulogy followed by the playing of Taps. Special commemorative tee shots out into the marsh were then made by Warner Cole, Betsy and Gene Nemeth and former Pawleys head pro, Riley Kinlaw.
