A Good Joe has Left the Course – A Life Sketch of Joe Watts by Connie Watts (based on the personal writings of Joe Watts)

Joe Watts, longtime Utah Golf Association executive director, friend to many, father, brother, grandfather and husband, has finished the course and signed his score card.

On March 11, 2024, Joe left the 18th hole with his putter held high and that enduring smile on his face – not necessarily a smile of a champion but more significant, the grin of satisfaction – having played the game well, enjoyed it and made so many friends along the way.

Life is a lot like a round of golf. You start out at the first tee box. Clubs gleaming. Fresh polo shirt. Sunny skies, friends smiling and hopes high. In front of you is a beautiful course you must navigate with a little ball and some sticks. Keeping the ball on the fairway and out of the rough – especially the deep rough – is the trick. No one knew their way around a golf course – or life – quite like Joe Watts. Let’s walk the course with him. Click Here to read Joe’s obituary.
