Timberlin event honors ‘incredible person’

Timberlin Golf Club hosted the Bob Stein Grandparent Grandchild Outing on Wednesday, July 14, an annual event which allows grandparents to bring their grandchildren out for a 9-hole round.

Stein, who died in 2011, came up with the concept. The outing is now held in his honor.

“Bob was extremely passionate about this event and wanted it to continue long after he was gone,” Timberlin head professional Marc Bayram stated. “Bob was an incredible person and always thinking of others before himself. Bob had cancer and was going through chemotherapy when I met him at Timberlin when I started in January of 2011. This event kept him going and meant the world to him.”

Since Stein’s passing, Bayram said the grandparent grandchild outing has been blessed with great weather. “[A]nd it wouldn't shock me if Bob had something to do with that,” the head pro stated.

The 2021 event drew 32 participants.

“Golf is a game you can play no matter what age you are. Bringing the grandchildren together with their grandparents to play golf is truly something special,” said Bayram. “It is truly a fantastic event that brings everyone together for an enjoyable day and memories that will last a lifetime.”
