KOKOMO, Ind. – Cary Hungate is back home. The local golf professional has announced he will return to the Kokomo Country Club on Jan. 1, 2013, after one year at Green Acres Golf Club. Hungate spent 19-seasons at the Kokomo Country Club before departing one year ago.
“There is no question I have always seen the Club as my golf home,” said Hungate, who served as the pro and general manager at Green Acres. “I got to know everyone so well and just missed everyone. I had a good year at Green Acres and met some wonderful people, but I am excited to return to the Kokomo Country Club.”
Hungate is widely considered one of the best teaching and playing professionals in Indiana. He is a three-time Indiana PGA Player of the Year (1987, 1988, 1990) and was named the Pepsi Senior PGA Player of the Year in 2010. Hungate is also a member of the Howard County Sports Hall of Fame.
“I had the opportunity to do things at Green Acres that I had never done before,” said Hungate. “It was a great experience, but I am happy to return to my home at the Club, I really think that is where I belong.”
