Ron Garland and his book with Brian Hewitt "Golf Nuts: You've Got To Be Committed"
Thad Gutowski talks with Ron Garland who founded the Golf Nuts Society in

the founding of the Society and an intimate look into the mind of the man
(Garland) who started "the most unique golf association in the world." All
golfers are at least a little nuts about the game, and because of that,
every golfer will be able to relate to the zany antics of the members of
the Golf Nuts Society. These are otherwise perfectly normal human beings
and you will identify with them because you've done many of the same things
as these self-professed "Golf Nuts."
Sidney L. Matthew and his book
"In my 16 years in the business, Yarrow is the most spectacular inland setting for a golf course that I have seen to date, period. The wetlands, rolling terrain, and vegetation are just absolutely spectacular", said Ray Hearn, President of Raymond Hearn/ Paul Albanese Golf Designs.
For more information on Yarrow, please contact Toby Hilton, director of Sales & Marketing at 269-731-2056 or visit http://www.yarrowgolf.com
