      Mizzou golf course to be named Walsworth Family Golf Complex

      An $8.3 million contribution has earned a former University of Missouri curator naming rights for the school's golf course at a Columbia country club.




      The university's Board of Curators voted unanimously last week to designate the facility as the Walsworth Family Golf Complex, a part of the Club at Old Hawthorne.

      That comes five months after Don and Audrey Walsworths' gift for upgrades at Memorial Stadium upgrades and a new clubhouse for the men's and women's golf teams.




      Don Walsworth, of Marceline, is an MU graduate, CEO of a northern Missouri publishing company and former curators' chairman.




      Two of his three children played golf for Missouri. A third was a Pac-10 golf champion at Stanford University.




      A Mizzou Arena outdoor plaza is also named for the family.
