With a little extra time, energy and creativity, Alice Scott said what was born of a joke became her livelihood.
“How can you go wrong with a name like Butthead Covers?” she asks. Yes, that’s right, “Butthead Covers.” Scott, a Sherburne high school graduate and part-time resident of Earlville, said her company specializes in making golf club covers designed as creatures and characters of all kinds.
Scott and her husband Danny were living in Arizona after her early retirement when one day out on the golf course, the idea for her business was born. She said a man they had been golfing with spotted a cover she had in her golf bag. “What is that, a turkey butt?” he said. Alice said they joked all afternoon about her “turkey butt” that was simply a cloth cover, but from there she decided she would research the idea and come up with her own version of a “turkey butt.”
