John Cook grew up in Mission Hills, returns for senior golf

John Cook is a full-time golf speaker and part-time professional golfer, but the prospect of playing in the new Galleri Classic in Rancho Mirage was too good for Cook to pass up.

“It will take quite a week. Obviously, I’m really excited about it,” said Cook, who spent the 1970s growing up at Mission Hills Country Club, the site of the Galleri Classic.

Cook continued to play the Dinah Shore Tournament Course in the 1980s and 1990s during a professional career that resulted in 11 PGA Tour events. But over the past two decades, Cook has rarely seen his old home course.
