Missouri Golfer on a Mission to Play Every Course in the State

Updated:

A Missourian is trying to accomplish something no one else has done.  Mark Schupp sold his advertising firm in 2014 to try and play every single golf course in the Show Me State.

When Schupp set out on this ambitious feat about two years ago, it was mostly him wanting to play every course in the entire state, but it quickly became something more.

"The average American, when they retire they play golf, and they travel.  Well, I've traveled pretty much through my job around the world, extensively through the United States, but I've never been to every little nook and cranny in Missouri, so I said well -- let's combine both.  Play golf and go to every little nook and cranny," says Schupp.

He learned how to program and design his own website and founded https://mogolftour.com/.

"There really is no other resource on the web or even in print that focuses on only Missouri golf courses.  So this is it.  So i want to make sure this website is as good as it could possibly be for prospective golfers," adds Schupp.

This endeavor is funded out of Schupp's own pocket and his love for the sport.

"I'm not making.  I think -- I could make money on the website, because I'm getting a couple thousand hits a month on the website.  So I can put a monetary value on it, I just chose not to.  Even the listings on the courses are all completely free," says Schupp.

And the journey has become a little bit more than just golf.

"I'm meeting a lot of wonderful people across the state, and Missourian are just well mannered, very friendly and very accommodating and it makes me proud to be a Missourian," adds Schupp.

He plans on wrapping up the Joplin area with stops at Twin Hills, Schifferdeck and Briarbrook golf course on Friday.
