Memorial Day Signals the Beginning of a

Great Summer of Golf


Life is not about your last Slice, Hook or Shank.

It’s How you recover on the next shot that matters.………

Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer vacations, reunions and

family outings. It is also a time to remember those who gave the ultimate

sacrifice for our country. In this issue we recognize a few of golf’s more

famous names that interrupted their careers to serve their country.

There are several opportunities for area golf fans to catch live golf action

this summer. Of course the Marathon Classic will host the best women

golfers in July at Highland Meadows, but a new event, the Volvik LPGA

Championship, will be held inAnnArbor over theMemorial Dayweekend.

In addition, the USGA will hold its Amateur Championship in Detroit at

famed Oakland Hills and the U.S. Open is just a four-hour drive away at

Pittsburgh’s Oakmont Country Club.

Don’t forget the Memorial Tournament will be held at Jack Nicklaus’

MuirfieldVillage Golf Club June 2-5.

Mike May’s article

about Caledonia

Golf & Fish Club is a winner. It is located adjacent to True Blue and at the

southern-most end of Myrtle Beach, by Pawley’s Island.We had the chance

to visit

Kiawah Island in April

and it is one of the most enjoyable resorts we

have ever visited. My wife and I both cannot wait to return to the wonderful

beach, golf and relaxed atmosphere that surrounds Kiawah Island.

Be sure to read the article about
