    • Lee Gerdes

      Macon has produced its share of top amateur golfers through the years, and Lee Gerdes is certainly included in that group. He had a stellar high school career at Mount de Sales Academy, where he was a three-time all-region selection, a three-time region medalist and a state runner-up. Inducted into the Mount de Sales Hall of Fame in 2008, he set program records in career scoring average, season scoring average and match score. His high school success earned him a golf scholarship to the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, where he continued to excel. As a four-year letterwinner for the Mocs, he was a two-time All-Southern Conference selection and a two-year team captain. His college record shows one individual tournament title, 18 top-20 finishes, 10 top-10 finishes and six top-five finishes. He was a member of Chattanooga’s first Southern Conference championship. But Gerdes really has made his mark as an amateur in Middle Georgia and around the state. He is an eight-time Cherry Blossom champion, five-time Honors champion, five-time City of Macon champion, four-time Macon-Middle Georgia champion, three-time Golden Isles champion and a one-time Peach Blossom winner. Overall, he has captured more than 25 amateur titles. He qualified for the 1989 U.S. Amateur in the Atlanta qualifier as the low qualifier and made it to match play. He has been the club champion at three Macon area country clubs. He has won the Healy Point Club title 10 times, the River Forest championship seven times and the title at Idle Hour once. (more)
