Let’s face it – if you are a parent you know what I mean – fall is the best time to play golf in the Midwest if you can find time to break away. The kids are back in school, a good portion of recreational players have decided to put their clubs away so the courses aren’t as busy, and most importantly the weather is ideal and course conditions are usually impeccable.
That’s why at Midwest Golfing Magazine our Fall Issue gives you a great mix of Midwest fall destinations and warm weather ones for the diehards that don’t want their season to end at all.
Let’s start where the weather is beautiful nearly 12 months a year – South Carolina and the small town of Santee. Located just off I-95, Santee consists of 17 courses in a 45 mile radius with ample tourist attractions and great accommodations. Our Matt Tevsh experienced the region last December and believes this is a golf destination on the rise.
If you’re looking to go west young man (or woman) then MGM strongly recommends Wolf Creek in Mesquite, Nevada. I really didn’t need to add in the Mesquite part, as all golfers know exactly where this desert gem is located!
Within our eight-state distribution area we are thrilled to highlight some incredible properties. Tullymore Golf Resort in Stanwood, MI maybe in “down-state” Michigan, but you’ll feel like your up north. 36 Championship holes, remarkable lodging options, and first-class amenities are hallmarks of this amazing place!
We stay in the Midwest for our Best of The Midwest Centerfold that focuses on BOYNE Golf – a northern Michigan institution for over 50 years. Ten Courses, Three Resorts, One Destination – that is not only their motto, but a calling for golfers to head to Michigan’s northwest coast.
A few miles south of BOYNE’S empire resides Arcadia Bluffs, Manitou Passage, and Crystal Mountain – three golf-centric properties that Matt Tevsh experienced in late July as part of a Pure Michigan Familiarization Trip. Matt chronicles his four-day bucket-list journey and ponders the question – why don’t we all retire to the Wolverine State?
Finally, a Fall Issue wouldn’t be complete without our Annual Editor’s Choice Awards, our Holiday Gift Guide, Nate Gray’s Pro Page, and Chip Shots.
