From the WPGA: We were saddened to hear of the passing of our long-time, dear friend, Arnold Walker. Arnold passed away peacefully yesterday after a short stay in hospice. It seems to me that even though it is sad news, it is time to celebrate the 97 years that Arnold was with us. Arnold was a member of the Wisconsin State Golf Hall of Fame since 2011 and an Honorary Member of the Wisconsin PGA since 2014. In 1998, in honor of everything he did for the Milwaukee County Public Links Association, their championship was renamed the Arnold Walker Milwaukee County Championship. Arnold was also the long-time chair of the marshal committee for the Greater Milwaukee Open. He served on the board of the WSGA for over 20 years while serving as secretary for many of those years. Arnold also served on the executive committee for the Golf Foundation of Wisconsin. Arnold was a Navy veteran who served in World War II. He was married to his wonderful wife Betty for over 63 years until she passed away four years ago. Arnold basically started his post-navy career with Merrill Lynch in New York City, moved to Milwaukee and retired from Merrill Lynch. To say Arnold was a dedicated man would be a gross understatement. Beyond family, golf was Arnold's passion. He volunteered in the game for 60 years. He was not a good player, actually for most of his life, he was not even a decent player. I believe his quote was typically, "I have no game." A round in the 90's was a good day while a round in the 80's was the exception. But, it didn't matter. He loved what the game of golf stands for, he loved the people in the game and did what he could to give back. He gave back more than most. So many of us were fortunate to have spent time with Arnold when we worked at one of the Milwaukee County Parks. He was a hands-on volunteer and helped out at all of the MCPLA events that were hosted at the facilities. We were fortunate to learn rules and operations from such a gentleman. Arnold was a strong advocate of the WPGA and our members. He worked tirelessly behind the scenes encouraging the Milwaukee County Parks to hire PGA professionals to operate their championship courses and create programming to get more people into the game. Arnold was quoted in an article saying he was quite certain the county personnel viewed him as a pest for his constant advocating for the golfers in the community. I had to break the news to Arnold one day that pest was not the word they used to describe him. He laughed at that and said; "Good, I must be getting my point across." For close to 30 years Arnold served as a dedicated rules official for the WPGA and the WSGA. For those that knew him they knew that one of Arnold's biggest passions with tournament play was pace of play. If you didn't know Arnold and you played slowly, Arnold was quick to introduce himself. He had very strong ideals as to how to monitor and enforce pace of play. The WPGA enacted many of his concepts over the years and as a result, our pace of play for the most part, left Arnold with a smile on his face. Thank you, Arnold, for your friendship and your advocacy of so many things the WPGA believes in. We will miss you but we have cherished our countless hours together on the links and in the meeting room. God bless you for everything you have done for golf and the WPGA. At this time there is no obituary but it is expected there will be soon. At this time there is no service scheduled. -- Joe Stadler, PGA Executive Director Wisconsin PGA/WPGA Junior Foundation 11350 W. Theo Trecker Way West Allis, WI 53214 414-443-3570

2ND TEAM SCHEDULE FINALIZED & 1ST TEAM ELIMINATED The 2020 2nd team schedule is now finalized and listed in the tournament section of this website. 1st team has been eliminated. In a surprising move, one of our clubs decided they would not field a team, thus causing the elimination of the 1st team in it's current form. We will work during the year to see if there is interest in reviving it in another form.

The much anticipated new MCPLA website is live!!! We are now in the 21st Century with the capability to enter and pay for the tournaments online with your credit card. Gone are the days of checks and entry blanks!! The tournament entry information is online and you are able to enter now. Please note that the 2 man entry is only going to charge you for your part of the entry fee. It will ask your partner’s name, but he will have to register and pay online as well. The Spring Championship is now in place of the former Sr and Mid-Am Tournament. There is no age restriction anymore. It will be a flighted tournament with the net scores being used to decide the winners. There will be a gross winner as well. The Arnold Walker Tournament uses gross scores to determine the winners in each flight. The 2 man Tournament will used 90% handicap for each player to determine the best ball winner. Huge thank you to Wade Carlson for getting our website up and running. Not only is he an expert golfer, but he has changed careers. After 15 years in the golf business, he has ventured into software development. Bear with us as we learn how to post things and improve the functionality as we learn while we go along. We will still use Bluegolf for the scoring of the tournaments but we are able to post pictures of the winners and a tournament recap on this site. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to talk to Brian Pederson or Bob Freuck. Enjoy our new site and check back often and watch it grow!! -BF
