Where Are They Now: Farwell’s Emily Rohdy
FARWELL — As a freshman in 2007, Emily Rohdy and a small group of girls founded the girls golf program at Farwell High School after petitioning the school board to start a team.
She qualified for the state tournament in her sophomore, junior and senior year, capping off her high school career with a fourth place finish in 2009.
Out of 50,000 applicants, Rohdy was named the Wendy’s High School Heisman female representative for the state of Michigan for exceptional athletic performance, academic achievements and dedication to volunteer work in the community.
Rohdy then took her talents to Ferris State in 2010 to play for the women’s golf team. In April of her freshman year she was named the GLIAC Women’s Golf Athlete of the Week.
She won her first collegiate tournament at the Ohio Dominican Give 18 Fore Cancer Classic, after she sank a 30-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff after tying for first place in regulation.
Rohdy won several more invitationals and tournaments as well as amassing multiple All-GLIAC First and Second Team honors in her four years as a Bulldog.
She graduated from Ferris State in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business with a concentration in Professional Golf Management.
After college she worked at several golf courses including Midland Country Club, Vail Golf Club, Pilgrims Run Golf Club, Kent Country Club and Railside Golf Club.
Currently, she is the Head Golf Professional at Bucks Run Golf Club in Mt. Pleasant after her hire in 2019 as a 26-year-old.
Rohdy was also the 2019 Michigan PGA Assistant Golf Professional of the Year and has been a member of the PGA since 2015.
