RUB OF THE GREEN: Grayless takes over as golf professional at Hulman Links

TERRE HAUTE — Ed Grayless has assumed the “head man’s” position at the Links after Ryan Klopfenstein resigned as Hulman Links golf professional in order to pursue other interests.

Grayless and his wife, Debbie, are the parents of three daughters, Megen, Tiffany and Erin. Ed is proud of Megen for losing 70 pounds working at the golf course.

The affable Grayless indicated that he has always had an interest in merchandising. In fact, he was managing two Osco Drug Stores when he got a call from Jon Holloway with an offer to work for him at Rea Park.

After 10 years at Rea, Ed has spent the past seven working at Hulman Links.

Local golfers have always enjoyed the trips that Ed organized in which various Indiana and Illinois courses were visited. They included Twin Bridges, Heartland Crossing, The Trophy Club, Iron Horse, Stone Creek and others.

Ed Grayless is a graduate of Gerstmeyer Technical High School, where he participated in football and golf. He shot in the 70s in high school. His lone hole-in-one came on No. 4 at Hulman, when he hit an 8-iron into the cup.

Grayless indicated that junior clinics will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays during June and July in conjunction with the Terre Haute Boys and Girls Club.

A golfer’s special will continue to be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Hulman at which time players may get green fees, use of a cart and lunch for $27.

A complement of experienced personnel is on hand to make anyone’s trip to Hulman Links memorable.

Some of these who work to make Hulman Links one of the best places to play include rangers, Dick Stockberger, John Bones and Mike Barnes. Other workers are Dave Brown, Tom Rohr, John Deardoff, Linus Haller, Megen Grayless and Peggy Pearson.

Dave Alumbaugh is the greenskeeper, a position he has held since the course opened in 1978.
