Russ Greer has been playing at Charleston Municipal Golf Course since he graduated from Moultrie High School in 1964, so it's fair to say he has a love affair with the course.
Greer spearheaded a $50,000 improvement project that beautified the first tee area that was dedicated a year ago, and this year his Friends of Muni have several other projects in mine.
The first, building a senior tee box for the par-5 15th hole, has already been approved, and Friends of Muni is more than halfway toward the goal of raising almost $3,000. But Greer doesn't want to stop there and hopes to continue raising funds for other projects at the public facility.
"In 15 years Muni will have its 100th birthday and our goal is to have it as good as it can be," Greer said. He said the purpose of Friends of Muni is for the beautification of the golf course and benefit the wildlife, of which 39 species have been identified.
