Former Cyclone women's golfer murdered

Post by squirrel » Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:19 am

Celia Barquin Arozamena of Spain, but a recent graduate of Iowa State was beaten and murdered at Coldwater Golf Links in Ames.

She won the 2018 European Ladies Amateur, and qualified for the US Women's Open, but missed the cut.

The Iowa State women's golf coach is Christie Martens, who has done an amazing job building that program in her 17 years. The fomer Christie Hermes, she was a standout at Sterling Newman and Northwestern. She was a freshman the same year I was at Newman, we didn't have enough for a full boys varsity team, so she and another girl were on the varsity boys team and she was by far the best golfer on our team.

What an awful story.

Guy lived in a tent near the golf course, police knew him because of run ins. Sad sad. Not even safe to play a round of golf alone. I would like to know a little more, like did golfers know of him , perhaps thought he was harmless?

Statistically I would imagine playing a round of golf alone is one of the safest things a person can do.

Terribly sad story.

Not sure of any way to prevent this. Who could predict you could be murdered on a golf course?
