On Saturday, October 8, 2022, Goofy Golf in Fort Walton Beach will honor the late founder, Robert “Bob” Fleskes, with a day of free golf!

Whether you knew him as “Mr. Goofy” or just “Bob,” Robert J. Fleskes left an enduring memory on the local community.

  • For 42 years he owned and operated Goofy Golf in Fort Walton Beach. 
  • Bob passed away on August 17, 2022 in Niceville at the age of 88.

With his playful smile and teasing sense of humor he connected with thousands of visitors and residents. Bob’s life was dedicated to entertaining, said his daughter Selena Fleskes Rogers.

Current owner, Chris Clements, worked for Bob for a number of years before buying the business from him.

“Every time I think about Goofy Golf, I can see his face,” he said. “I can see him and Faye [Bob’s wife] because they’re the ones that brought me into all of this and where I’m at now because of them.”

Guests are invited to play Goofy Golf for FREE from 10AM to 8PM on Saturday, October 8, 2022.

  • “We hope that you will stop by and join us for a round of golf or to share your memories of Bob and Goofy Golf with his family which will be there throughout the day,” said Selena Fleskes Rogers.
