ORANGE - Walter "Bud" Smith was honored this past Sunday by Orange Hils Country Club’s Men and Womens Associations for his operation of the club for the past 60 years. Men’s Association president Dave Belowsky said it was only because of one person — Bud Smith and his hard work that Orange Hills is what it is today. Belowsky said Smith has always taken the high road. "Bud has been a father to some, a gentleman to others and a friend to all. The clock is but a small rememberance of his hard work and dedication to 60 years love of the game." Below, Smith listens to his granddaughter read the inscription that will be on the plaque. Right, Smith and Belowsky stand in front of the tower clock. The 11-foot high clock is located in a flower bed off the putting green.
