Celia Arozamena tributeThe Agricultural Business Club was the subject of a Sept. 26 Iowa State Daily story about their tribute to slain Iowa State golfer Celia Barquín Arozamena at their annual golf outing at Coldwater Golf Links in Ames.

Professor Ron Deiter, the club’s adviser, decided the night before the tournament the golfers would skip the ninth hole and give themselves a score of one-under-par — also known as a birdie.

“I thought it would be a good tribute if we skipped hole number nine and asked everybody when they’re driving down the cart path on number nine to pay their respects to Celia in their own way,” Deiter said. “Then when they get up by the number ten green, just give yourself a birdie because that’s probably what she would have gotten.”
