The scoreboards attached to the Portage Lake Golf Course clubhouse were named after the late Robert Leo (Rob) Roy on Wednesday, July 24, which would have been his 86th birthday. Rob passed away March 22, 2018.

Rob was an avid golfer and served on the Portage Lake Golf Club Board of Directors, as the Portage Lake Golf Club President as well Club Secretary and Club Treasurer for a number of years in the late 1960’s and throughout the 1970’s.

Rob became an employee of the golf course in 2003 serving as a starter, ranger, and scorer. With his impeccable calligraphy, Rob brought event and tournament scoring to a professional level. Rob scored over 20 events per year for over 15 years. His respect for the game of golf and the people playing it resulted in Rob being an irreplaceable asset to the course operations. The scoreboards will now be honored in Rob’s impressive legacy.
