Ralph Emery, another close golfing friend, and who planted most of the trees on the Glenmoor Golf Course, said, “No one loved golf more than Cec Bohn. He was easy to like and was honest and true in all his endeavors.”
He made match play in the Utah State Am seven years and defeated such accomplished players as two-time champion Arn Goff in a 19 hole match, Bert Bramwell, George Boss, Jack Noble, and Ralph Johnson. He lost to eventual champions Joe Bernolfo and Jon Mauss.
