Parkville In Art
Cathy Cline, Secretary for the Parkville in Art, painted a photo of the scenic No. 9 hole for an art auction being held at the National Golf Club of Kansas City in November. All proceeds will go to the Parkville in Art’s charity, Feed Northland Kids. Cathy has been working for Parkville in Art for four years and has been painting her entire life. She loves being able to paint pictures of Parkville to showcase her talent as well as promote her city. Cathy hopes to have over fifty artists come and paint pictures of the course and Parkville area at the art show in November.
Carson Smith, a nine-year-old triathlete, and Celia Cooper, a 10-year-old spunky volunteer, helped out this week at the Lockton / Samsung Kansas City Junior by running scorecards from the scoring tent to the scoreboard and then to tournament headquarters. The first day Celia sprinted to her destination always trying to beat her previous time. After Celia left for Nebraska, Carson graciously volunteered to do the job for the second and third rounds. We soon found out that Carson was using his scorecard running position as training for a triathlon over the weekend. Celia and Carson have been team two’s best scorecard runners of the summer!
The National Golf Club of Kansas City
The National Golf Club of Kansas City in Parkville, Missouri, hosted the Lockton / Samsung Kansas City Junior for the second time in tournament history. The club previously hosted the tournament in 2009. In addition to the championship course, the club also owns The Deuce on the other side of the property. Both courses were designed by legendary course designer Tom Watson and are some of the top golf communities in Kansas City. Watson is from Kansas City and has designed three courses in the area.
