Welcome to our first ever Show Golf Issue! Since all the Midwest Golf Shows were cancelled, we needed to come up with a catchy new title. It’s actually an appropriate moniker as our mission is to show you where to play in the Midwest and beyond. So as our thoughts turn away from last year’s tribulations, let’s rejoice that the game of golf has never been stronger and that all travel restrictions will be lifted in 2021. Honestly, I can’t remember being this excited for a golf season to start in a long time, and our staff has done a great job piquing my travel interests!
The great thing about our Golf Show Issue is that most destinations and courses featured (except for Thailand) can be accessed by car. We start with our cover story on our great friends at BOYNE Golf in Northern Michigan. I strongly recommend taking advantage of their Great Escape Stay and Play Package that includes unlimited play on seven of their 10 world-class courses.
Staying in Michigan, lead staff writer Matt Tevsh attended last fall’s opening day celebration at American Dunes in Grand Haven. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Design is also the home course of Folds of Honor and 100% of all dollars earned at the course is going to that worthy cause.
If you are looking for two amazing winter/spring destinations then you have check out the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama or The Heritage Golf Collection on Hilton Head Island. Both venues offer incredible stay and play packages and tons of fun for the whole family!
The Heritage Golf Group expanded their portfolio last July with the purchase of the River Club of Mequon just north of Milwaukee, WI. As Glen Turk reports, their management team is determined to make the club the ideal membership option for families that love golf.
We are also blessed to form a partnership this year with Annex Wealth Management, which has offices in Wisconsin, Northern Illinois and Florida and makes giving back through their partnership with numerous golf charitable events a top priority!
Finally, we conclude the first issue of our 18th year with a cool feature on Jeff King, Founder of King Made Jerky, the official beef jerky of the PGA Tour, and staples such as Must Haves, Chip Shots, and Turk’s Takes.
Make some birdies,
