Puetz Golf Range & Pro Shop

I USED TO HIT balls here. Mats. Crowded on weekends. About a 15-minute drive from the house. Now it’s 2,800 miles away. George Puetz was good enough to qualify for and play in the 1955 U.S. Open. I imagine Puetz also played in other events. His family owned the range and store. That’s all I know.

That's an epically old-school sign. Thanks for sharing that story.
