Midwest Golfing Magazine 2017 Spring Issue
Read the full issue online.
Summertime is always our favorite time as long days and warm nights lead to the best time of the year to play in the Midwest. Our 2017 Summer Issue is chalked full of great destinations sure to make your summer memorable.
Our issue begins with our cover feature on The Warren Course at Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. The USGA late last year announced that the Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw design will host the 2019 U.S. Senior Open, making it the first university course to do so!
Next we would love to introduce you to a new partner, Mountains to Midlands Golf Alliance, which features over 20 courses in four regions throughout South Carolina. The Alliance features the top inland courses in the Palmetto State and thanks to their affordable stay and play packages, is a must see before the end of the year.
One of our long-time partners, Shangri-La Resort in Monkey Island, Oklahoma just opened a beautiful 120 room hotel and now offers golfers the ability to enjoy their marina amenities, 27 holes of championship golf, and superb restaurants without having to leave for the night.
If staying closer to home is your idea of a relaxing summer, MGM has you covered as well. Glen Turk explores Black Lake Golf Club in Onaway, MI and calls it one of the most peaceful places on earth. In the Badger State, we highlight Christmas Mountain Village in Wisconsin Dells, which does an amazing job of getting golfers away from it all, even though you are less than five miles from the Waterpark Capital of America! Speaking of Wisconsin, the 117th U.S. Open was a rousing success at Erin Hills, and our own Matt Tevsh recaps the championship how only he can.
We are also thrilled to include two business profiles within this issue, one on Potawatomi Casino & Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, and one on Tour Edge Golf in Batavia, IL. For over 30 years Tour Edge has been a Midwestern success story.
And finally, an issue of MGM would not be complete without Chip Shots, Andy Podolak’s Pro Page, and Turk’s Takes. Here’s to perfect weather and the time to enjoy it this summer.
