The remarkable life of the late Putter Jarvis will be commemorated once again — this time on the golf course.
    A dedication ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Brownwood Country Club golf course, where a bronze statue of Jarvis will be unveiled at the Number 2 tee box. The tee box has been rebuilt in memory of Jarvis.
    Jarvis, who loved golf, died July1 at the age of 83.
    Dennis Rumfield, a member of the Brownwood Country Club Golf Association’s Advisory Committee, explained the background of the Jarvis memorial via email:
    The newly formed Brownwood Country Club Golf Association advisory committee met and decided on a project to rebuild the Number 2 tee box  in memory of Jarvis.
    Jarvis’ family was informed of the project and wanted to help by making a monetary donation, and also have a life-size bronze statue of Jarvis created to be installed next to the tee.
    Golf association members met, and the organizers of the Putter Jarvis Memorial Invitational and Brown County Junior High Golf Team and Scholarship Program committed to help raise funds for the project.
    The funds would come from the first annual Putter Jarvis Memorial Invitational tournament sponsors. This was the three-man scramble tournament formerly sponsored by Landmark Life.
    Funding and completion of the construction for the project was a collective effort between the golf association, tournament organizers,  several business and individual sponsors, country club employees and local construction contractors.
    Special thanks go to country club owners Steve and Vicky Baker for allowing the project to become a reality, Rumfield said.
