I say this every year, but where did our golf season go? I hope you crossed a ton of courses off your group’s bucket list and got to enjoy another Midwest summer. The good news is we still have some time to complete your golf goals in the Midwest and to look ahead to warm weather vacations this winter.
Our Fall issue is dedicated to providing great golf trip options far and wide. We begin with Senior Writer Glen Turk’s take on one of our favorite destinations, The Red Rock Golf Trail in St. George, Utah. Ten courses in less than a 10-mile radius and 350 days of sunshine per year – sign me up baby!
Less than 45 minutes south of the trail is Wolf Creek, one of Nevada’s most prestigious layouts. Staff writer Matt Tevsh details this out-of-this world property that is a must-play this winter.
MGM is also thrilled to showcase the amazing city of Tucson, Arizona, which is rich in golf history, stunning resorts, and top-tier properties. We then head as west as you can go to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, the nation’s premier multi-course links destination. I had the time of my life there in 2015, and I know your golf group will too.
We stay closer to home with articles on golf in Central Michigan and one of our favorite destinations – Branson, Missouri. Ozarks National has a soft opening for the public this November and I bet the early reviews will be incredible!
Our Fall Issue wouldn’t be worth the paper it’s printed on if it didn’t include our annual Editor’s Choice Awards. It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing them for 13 years! Plus, we’ve got a few awesome Midwest tournament announcements in our Chip Shots, and we chronicle Steve Stricker’s amazing year on two tours in our Midwest Golfing Personals. We round out the issue with our Holiday Gift Guide and Nate Gray’s Pro Page. Have a great rest of the year and we’ll see you again in 2019!
