To say that Bernie Lucas loved playing golf might rank as one of the biggest understatements of all time. He was introduced to the game when he was around 16 years old, and from that time on, he was hooked.
About 27 years ago, Bernie began collecting logo’d golf balls. A logo’d golf ball is a regular golf ball that has the logo or name of a golf course or company imprinted on it, and is typically used for marketing or given out as a momento. It’s a lot of fun collecting golf balls with the various logo’s, and Bernie certainly had a lot of fun, accumulating more than 4,000 balls through the time this article was written five years ago.
Here’s a link to a story that appeared in the Penobscot Times about his collection back in 2012:
Sadly, Bernie passed away earlier this week. In honor of Bernie and his passion for golf, Bernie’s golf ball collection will be on permanent display for everyone to enjoy at Hidden Meadows Golf Course, beginning sometime next spring.
Bernie, we’re sure going to miss you, and I promise, we’ll never forget you.
