Golf Magazine had an article that interested me about a man who won the Iowa lottery and purchased a run down golf course. The La Porte City Golf Club had been devasted by flooding and was in dire shape when Wally Markham won 7.5 million in the Iowa lottery. Great story how he brought the club back and became succesful with many new members. Great story where a lottery winner gave back to his home golf course.

Check out my review at

We need a lottery winner to help our flooded golf club but members are working to buy the club and bring it back to its 27 hole beauty.
