The South Park Golf Club is honored to announce its former president and multiple "B" Class Champion the late Mike Kane was named to the Club's Hall of Fame.
Mike Kane was a champion athlete, not just a golfer, and could always be seen working on a project at the course. Mike was taken much to early from us by Cancer, but the Club will remember all of his efforts to make the Club the best it could be. Mike was a stalwart in our annual Challenge Cup matches, and he can be seen drinking from the Challenge Cup after the 2010 competition in the photo to the left.
