Passing of Club Vice President Darrin Koepnick
The South Park Golf Club lost one of its most popular members and long-time Club Vice-President when Darrin Koepnick succumbed after a long battle with cancer on October 26, 2016. Darrin greeted everyone with a big smile as a friend and was well respected for his play on the golf course. He finally won the "B" Class Championship in 2014 after many near misses, and he also won the "B Class Slam" when he won the "B" Class Scratch Match Play Championship later that year. Darrin also won the Scratch "B" Class Match Play Championship in 2011, as well as various monthly tournaments through the years. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Sue. Darrin will surely be missed by all and the 2017 South Park Golf Club season will be played in Darrin's honor.
