Every golfer wants to break 100, but it’s usually with a score instead of an age.
Lowell Jones, a regular golfer at Brea Creek Golf Course in Brea, Calif., turned 100 years of age on January 1 and promptly went out to play golf the same day. Jones has already played five rounds this year and played a total of 42 rounds at Brea Creek last year when he was 99.
Jones first came over to Brea in 2011 when his previous club closed for a renovation. He now plays once per week with a group of three other guys. For the first three years at Brea, Jones would walk the course, but he recently decided to start taking a cart in his advanced age.
“He’s still going strong,” says General Manager Matt Cushman. “It’s great to see him out there. He can still get it around pretty well.”
