Toro Recognizes Championship Effort
Life for the Curtis family of Mill Creek Golf Club has very hectic since Ben Curtis' win at the 132nd British Open. The Toro Company along with its distributor, Century Equipment, will help by contributing a Toro Workman 2110 to support their daily needs and added demands.
"Ben's win has created a lot of excitement here. I have given over 200 interviews with local, national and international media," said Bob Curtis, Ben's dad, head superintendent and a member of the family that owns Mill Creek Golf Club. "We are very busy with the extra attention, so the addition of the Workman will help us get the job done. We will use it for transporting tools, hoses, landscaping materials and dry fertilizer to carrying supplies for changing cups and syringing greens and fairways. I especially like the electric lift box because it will make it easier to raise the bed to dump the contents, such as sand for the bunkers."
Ben Curtis learned to play golf from his grandfather Bill Black, at the family owned Mill Creek Golf Club. Originally, Black purchased the land for farming, but knew it would be a nice place for a golf course. Opened in 1973 as a nine-hole course, adding a second nine in 1977, Mill Creek Golf Club is celebrating their 30th anniversary.
