James A. Scott (’78) – HP323

James A. Scott (’78), HP323, or commonly known as Tony Scott, is one of the most recognizable names in the city of Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Scott surname can be seen countless times during a short walk through the city. Tony Scott’s biggest success comes from his inheritance of Scott Waste from his father, Jim Scott. Scott Waste is one of the largest employers in Bowling Green and throughout the Western part of Kentucky. Through his father, Tony Scott possesses the ownership of The Club at Olde Stone — the premier golf course in the state of Kentucky.

[quote] The Golf Course at Olde Stone is a golfer’s paradise. Designed by internationally acclaimed golf architect Arthur Hills, it is destined to be a classic. Created with a deep respect for the land, Hills was given free rein to create a masterpiece on terrain that he describes as “one of the absolute best sites we’ve worked on.” -Bowling Green Area Convention & Visitors Bureau [/quote]
