Interview 182a : In this interview with Jonathan Gerland, former Diboll Golf Pro and course manager Ray Paulsey recounts his time spent in Diboll overseeing the golf course. Hired in 1968, Mr. Paulsey oversaw the course's construction and opening and then managed the course once open, until 1975. During this time, he worked closely with Arthur Temple, Jr. and Horace Stubblefield. Under his management, the course became one of the best in East Texas. This public, nine-hole course attracted players from across the state and hosted many well-regarded tournaments.
