Two golfers honored with memorial bench


MADISON (WKOW) -- The co-founders of the Madison Area Retired Golf Association will continue to be remembered by an inscribed bench that will rest at the eighth hole at the Glenway golf course.

MARGA held a ceremony earlier this afternoon to dedicate the bench to the late Donald Wendt and Harry Snobarger.

"I know Don was a wonderful gentleman who loved Glenway very much," said Bill Scheer, Glenway's head golf professional. "He was always out here in his signature cardigan sweater and he was always a gentleman."

Snobarger and Wendt founded the organization in 1979, which now supports more than 200 golfers at three of the city's golf courses.

"[The organization] really gives a great opportunity for a lot of seniors to play golf in an organized fashion in the city," Scheer added.
