Locally Made Golf Shot This Weekend Worth $10,000

A hole in one is a very rare event at a golf course.  It’s even more so rare at an amateur golf scramble.  That’s just exactly what happened yesterday at the Manistee National Golf Club. 

Jeff Urka of Ludington sank a hole in one on the #9 hole at 164 yards. The hole sponsorship was made by Parkdale Auto in Manistee.  Urka was golfing with Dean Schultz, Jake Bielski (beel ski) and Steve Castonia. 

The occasion was the Paul Butterfield golf scramble in memory of the fallen state trooper.  The one shot was worth $10,000!  Half of the money will go to Jeff Urka and the other half goes to the memorial scholarship fund.

Today is a special anniversary here at MOM Radio. It’s our 19th Birthday. WMOM was first heard on September 26th, 1999 in Western Michigan. Our first studio location was at 907 East Ludington. With MOM’s ironwilled determination to develop a new audience, many listeners soon found us and continue to tune in daily.

For the last 14 years, The Stearns Hotel Building has been our home. We’ve been the community leader with unique promotions including the Square Pool, 12 days of Christmas, The Little MOM-sters bash, MOM’s Taxi, Shop With A Cop and over one hundred thousand dollars in prizes and gifts. Our latest innovation is a 24-hour web stream that can be downloaded on your Android or iPhone. We’ve been told by many that this feature is important to hear news and sports when traveling.

WMOM has been the launching pad for many radio and business careers. Several past employees have been heard in larger radio markets like Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis. And, the station has been recognized as an industry leader. This past spring, WMOM was honored by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters as “station of the year”. We thank our many thousands of listeners today and remember “always listen to your MOM”!
