New golf pro at Schifferdecker Golf Course brings expertise to the golfing community

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

Golfers will see a new face around Schifferdecker Golf Course this summer, and may be interested in talking with him about their game. Daryn Buholt, a PGA golf professional, has joined the City staff and will be working in various areas related to the course and skills in playing the game of golf.

Originally from Southwest Missouri, Buholt graduated from Neosho High School where he was a three year letterman and received All Conference Honors in golf. He attended the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Okla., for the PGA Professional Golf Management Program. He graduated in 2013 with his Class A PGA classification and a Bachelor's in Business Administration. He has been in the golf industry for 10 years, working in various roles at several courses including Neosho Municipal Golf Course, Rose Creek Golf Club and Oak Tree National in Edmond. He was Merchandising Specialist at Golf Galaxy in Oklahoma City, Head Golf Professional at Dick's Sporting Goods in Moore, OK, and most recently served as an Assistant Golf Professional at Kicking Bird Golf Club in Edmond, Okla. Throughout his career, he has given hundreds of individual lessons to girls and boys of all ages, as well as Get Golf Ready classes, group clinics, and junior camps.

“We're excited to get Daryn introduced to the golfing community,” said Scott Garrie, Interim Director of Parks and Recreation. “He has a great deal of experience, and can provide some valuable insight to the management of the course, its maintenance and clubhouse merchandising. Of course, he'll be offering lessons as well, and can help players find the right clubs for them. He'll be a great asset to our community and to those who enjoy this game.”

According to the PGA website, more than 27,000 professionals are in the field and are well-versed in every aspect of the sport. Pros can help golfers with their swing, fitting their clubs, and assisting with tournament management, as well as providing their knowledge in the finesse needed in playing golf.

“With Buholt on staff, it's the City's goal to assist our current golfers with their needs, as well as increase the interest in the sport,” said Garrie. “He will be working with golfers of all ages, and is looking forward to developing a youth league and introducing new programs at Schifferdecker.”

For more information about lessons or other assistance that Buholt could provide, contact him at the Schifferdecker Clubhouse at 417-624-3533.

    Tuition is still going up at Missouri Southern State University, but it's tweaking the cost increase to credit hours to avoid a state fine. Missouri Southern's Board of Governors approved a 15 percent increase in student tuition last April, upping credit hours by $30. But state education law doesn't allow tuition increases beyond the consumer price index. To avoid a $1.1 million fine, MSSU adjusted down the tuition increase to $20 more per credit.
