Gene and Joby Kaufman along with Gene's dad, Burlin, started building the golf course in 1959 from the family farm. Etna Acres opened on July 4, 1960 with 65 golfers and hot dogs cooked in a popcorn popper. The back nine was opened in 1993.
In 2017, Devin Dale started his journey to follow Gene's footsteps as a PGA Assistant. He has started to give lessons and perform other duties.
We want every golfer to feel welcome at Etna Acres. We want every golfer to enjoy golf and to improve his or her game.
