“See the difference, Play the difference” this has been our motto at BGC for years thanks to Drue, his wife. Bluffton has been a family owned and operated business from the beginning and it continues today to be run by Floyd & Drue & Luke his son, who now heads up the outside maintenance crew.
In December of 2009 Floyd and his family took another leap of faith and purchased Golf @ Sugar Creek in Lima, OH, which we called Hidden Creek Golf Club—Floyd and Luke turned Hidden Creek around (just as they did with Bluffton) and have continued to put every effort into making Hidden Creek Golf Club one of the top notch golf courses in the area. There is no public golf course in the area that has fairways like Hidden Creek. “If you can’t do perfect, then do better!” Is our motto for our family, our golf course and our staff.
Floyd has continued over the years to support the youth golf programs such as Lima Junior Golf, as well as being the home course to several schools in the area including Bluffton High School, Ada High School, Temple Christian, and Cory Rawson High School. He has always generously given his time and course for the youth of Allen County to promote golf to preserve the game. He also has offered golf camps and mini clinics over the years. Floyd has hosted the Lima City Golf Tournaments for the Men and Women of Allen County. Other organizations such as the Black Swamp Jr. Golf League also utilizes our courses as well to continue to promote the love for this game.
Floyd continues to be well known throughout Ohio for his knowledge of this game we call golf. Our family and our members believe that if you have a question about golf—Floyd is the man to talk to!
Thank you all for your time and consideration of our nomination of our dad…
