Summary
In the casual style of storytelling to good friends, Sun-Up to Sun-Down reveals a rarely seen look into the personal lives of a diverse set of American entrepreneurs who by one path or another own golf courses. Even though today s golf industry is truly global, the United States is home to roughly one-half of all the golf courses in the world, as well as roughly one-half of all the golfers in the world. From manufacturing, construction, retail, tourism, service and other broad sectors of the industry, golf has a very important role in the U.S. economy. At the core of the industry are the men and women who own and operate the playing fields, the golf courses
Biography type
contains biographical information
Biographical or historical data
Tom Franklin is professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. For five years he was involved with the development and implementation of a four-year college degree in golf enterprise management at that university. Tom co-wrote the proposal to the UW Board of Regents for implementation of the new program, developed the first three courses within the program, and served as the first program director for the B.S. program. The opportunity enabled him to work with leaders throughout the golf industry, including many golf course owners. Even though he is an avid golfer, as a university professor he considered himself to be an outsider looking into an industry that he assumed was mysterious and glamorous. He found that he had a lot to learn.
