Dedication ceremony for Ken Stills Statue
August 6, 2018 the dedication of the new bronze statue of Ken Stills was held at the Fircrest Golf and County Club in Tacoma, Washington. This statue honors Ken for his dedication and contributions to the game of golf. He was the golf pro at Fircrest County Club for many years and fondly know as "Mr Golf" across the state of Washington. He was one of the founding directors for The Friends of American Lake Golf Course, whose members have gone on to raise millions of dollars for the support and development of the American Lake Golf Course in Lakewood, Washington. This course is now known as a course where our disabled Veterans and active military are welcome to enjoy the game of golf on this beautiful course. Ken was the first to contact Jack Nicklaus and introduced him to our golf course and was instrumental in Jack's decision to design the addition of the second nine holes, for free, which came to be know as "the Nicklaus 9”.
