Flick’s passion will live on with teaching center
May 15, 2013
Arizona Republic Sports, May 15, 2013 – In life, Jim Flick never wanted the attention to be on him. He took pride in sharing his passion for golf with others who sought his guidance, and their success was his only reward. Last week, it was made certain that Flick’s passion and spirit would live on with the dedication of the Jim Flick Golf Performance Center at Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale.
Flick, the director of instruction at Desert Mountain from 1987 to 2005, died of pancreatic cancer in November at age 82. The performance center opened to members in March 2012 but officially was dedicated to Flick last Wednesday with a ceremony at Desert Mountain’s Renegade course.
