GREEN BAY – For Rick Warpinski, managing the Shorewood Golf Course at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay was more than a job. For him, it was a second home.“My kids grew up at the course,” Warpinski said. “I recall playing a final round at the course (last fall) with my family.” Warpinski spent more than three decades at the university, starting as a student and ending as director of the Shorewood Golf Course from 2003-2019.Warpinski moved on professionally, but he said hearing the course would close permanently hit him hard. “I only wish the closing of Shorewood would have been known while it was still running, so those that really enjoyed playing the course could have played it one last time,” he said. UWGB Chancellor Mike Alexander announced July 8, after 90 years of golf, the university would permanently shut down the course.
