About Art

Of the many sports that Art enjoyed, golf was his passion, often traveling the country with his wife Barb to play new and challenging courses. While in high school, he exceled in basketball and baseball and took those talents to UW-Whitewater after he graduated in 1977. Art was well known around the community, being a founding member of the Town of Sheboygan’s Lions Club and a member of the Elks Club. He worked for 26 years at Kohler, and most recently 10 years at Johnsonville while also mentoring college students at Lakeland University and Lakeland Technical College. This tournament is to honor his memory, love for golf, and spirit of competition.

Proceeds from this tournament will go directly to The Town of Sheboygan Lion’s Club to support Town of Sheboygan park improvements. Raffles, hole contests and other opportunities to donate will be available the day of the tournament. Please join us and the Kleine family for a day filled with fond memories, great laughs, and lots of golf all while honoring our dear friend Artie.
