    The LaFollette Country Club has a new pro in the pro shop.

    Richard Comer took over the position in late September, which is a move he couldn’t be happier about.

    “It’s a dream come true,” Comer said. “It’s a dream job. I worked up here for five years before mowing and in the pro shop. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. My dad did it years ago, and then my Uncle Bobby (Heatherly) did it. It’s kind of like following in their footsteps.”
