Former club professional Hollis Marlow, who was at CCC from 1972 until 1981, died recently at his home in Reno, Nev. He had moved to Nevada following his retirement.
He was the father of the country club’s grounds superintendent Les Marlow.
Marlow came to the country club in February 1972 and was active in club activities and in the community for the following decade. He was presented an honorary membership to the country club when he retired in 1981.
Dick Horton, president of the Tennessee Golf Foundation, forwarded his sympathies to the family, saying he remembers Marlow and his contributions to the Tennessee Golf Association.
“I knew Hollis well and he loved to teach at the golf camp at Fall Creek Falls,” said Horton. “He knew the game and how to teach it as well as any golf instructor I have seen. My best personal lessons came from Hollis and the late Bill Faddis,” said Horton.
Faddis was an East Tennessee golf professional, primarily in the Knoxville area. He was a teaching professional at the public golf course in Seymour.
Cleveland Country Club officials have extended their best wishes to the Marlow family.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers memorial gifts be made to the Tennessee Golf Foundation or the Tennessee Golf Academy with a note that the contribution is in honor of Hollis Marlow.
Memorial gifts can be mailed to Connie Pearce, Tennessee Golf Foundation, 400 Franklin Road, Franklin, TN 37069.
