Joining her in this promotion, are Michigan's Big Three golf associations, Michigan PGA, Michigan Golf Course Owners Association and Golf Association of Michigan http://playgolfmichigan.org ================= MGN ON THE ROAD ================= Birmingham-Dick O'Dow's As the talk about the 2008 PGA at Oakland Hills CC begins to swell, we thought we would revisit one of our favorite haunts while covering the Ryder Cup.  Dick O'Dows , where "A Drink comes  before a story", was the home pub of many of the Irish who visited Birmingham during the Ryder Cup.  It is a terrific watering hole with fine food as well. After refreshing ourselves, we felt the magic of big time golf was closer than it was, say two pints before.  Let the hype begin.  Also, for those that have not visited Dick O'Dow's, we offer this Irish music video we shot a  couple of years and many pints back. http://michigangolfer.tv/2005shows/irish/inde
Detroit-WJR's Internet Advisor Show   WJR is celebrating its 85th birthday this month, and we were invited back to their Internet Advisor program as part of their program's celebration.   It was a celebration for many, as the Internet Advisor, is nearing 10 years of programming.  We have appeared on the show a number of times, but this was timed to announce our upcoming two millionth viewer since we launched Michigan Golfer Television on their show in 2001. We expect that viewer to log on to see a show sometime on June 9th. http://michigangolfer.tv/2001shows/sh
Quick, everybody to Dick O'Dow's Year Viewers 2001 58,209 2002 98,318 2003 173,048 2004 399,432 2005 411,082 2006 550,691 2007 243,889 (Through May 4th, 2007) Total     1,934,669 (Through May 4th, 2007) ========================================== NEW SHOW ON MICHIGAN GOLFER TELEVISION ========================================== Harbor Point Golf Club We are very pleased to bring you the World Premier of our Harbor Point Golf Club show.  We had lots of fun discovering the rich history of this course in our conversations with Head Professional, Shaun Bezilla. This is one of seven  Michigan golf courses that are into their 3rd century.  As we mentioned in an earlier note, the others are 1895 Wequetonsing Golf Club (Private), 1896 Harbor Beach Golf Course, 1898 Les Cheneaux Golf Club, Saginaw Country Club, Wawashkamo Golf Club and 1899 Washtenaw Country Club (Private). Our video begins in 1896 as our narrator, Shaun Bezilla, talks about how the course was built back in the days before the availability of motorized vehicles.  We have video of a team of horses working the ground to build a golf course, just as they did when this course was built in 1896.  Bezilla then takes us for a quick tour of the course as he selects four holes for us to view. This is a special show and we hope you enjoy it.  http://michigangolfer.tv ============== WE'VE GOT MAIL ============== Art,  I am disappointed that the story you ran a couple weeks ago about high school golf seasons changes has not been corrected. The court ruling that took place forces the boys to play in the spring and girls to switch to the fall, beginning this coming school year.  They are not and will not play simultaneously in the same spring season as your e-publication said.  Your calendar of events also still lists the boys and girls playing the state final at the same time this June; not true.    Additionally, one reason it's a sad situation (there are many) is because boy's golf teams in Michigan far outnumber girls teams, so boys will now have to compete for course time in the spring, when most amateur adults are starting their leagues, where as girls teams all these years have been able to work well into the golf courses' crowded schedules.  Also, more boy golfers play baseball than do girl golfers play softball, so a few boys golf coaches have already reported their teams will likely be terminated next spring due to lack of players.  It's a sad time in Michigan for youth golf due to this court ruling.   Tom Lang Livonia Editor's Note- Tom, sorry for the comfusion on my part.  I have made the corrections to the master calendar. Thanks and a Tip of the Tam for pointing out this gaffe.  Art 2007-2008 Calendar L.P. Girls Golf -first practice  begins on August  9 the Lower Peninsula Finals Oct 19-20 U.P.

According to Eagles Coach Bruce Montgomery, Mother Nature provided a heavy rain needed on the final 9 holes to give them the adversity needed to make up a four shot difference and win by three strokes. Eagle Graham Hill finished at(-11), and was the individual champion. In the 3rd round they got back in the hunt by shooting a School Record (-14) 274. Graham was MAC player of the Year and Chris Ross and Bryan Haase earned 2nd Team Honors. Tthe MAC victory stamped their ticket to the NCAA Regionals.   The Eagles do not know which Regional they will be going to yet.  They will be played May 17-19. You can access more information on golfstat.com  Also, coach Bruce Cunningham, has been named MAC Coach of the Year for the MAC. Taken and edited from an EMU golf team release. Sandy Wagner has also provided some leadership for the women's team. She took over the team two years ago and had them challenging for their first MAC Championship, finishing 2nd this year. Two Eagle golfers, Catherine Fortin and Stephany Fleet were named to the All MAC first team.. Wagner was named MAC Coach of the Year. http://emich.edu Note: Eastern Michigan University will next be in action at the NCAA East Regional, May 17-19, at The Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta, Ga. The Eagles will be joined by nine of the nation’s top 25 teams in the East Regional, including No. 1 Georgia, No. 7 Florida, No. 10 Georgia Tech, No. 11 Clemson, No. 12 Coastal Carolina, No. 20 Charlotte, No. 23 North Carolina, No. 24 Duke and No. 25 Florida State. Greg Steiner Assistant Sports Information Director Eastern Michigan University ============= GO SPARTANS ============= The 20th-ranked Michigan State women's golf team are competing in the NCAA Central Regional Championship in Ann Arbor, Mich., this Friday and Saturday.

======== ROCK ON ======== MILAN, Michigan (AP) - Kid Rock is lending a hand to a high school girls' golf team. Six sets of golf clubs were stolen from coach Claire Neff's vehicle on Monday evening in Ypsilanti. Following reports of the theft, Neff said she got a call Wednesday from the country-rap-rock star offering to help. "I was just stunned," Neff said. Rock, a native of Romeo, Michigan, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, said he would get new custom golf clubs to replace those belonging to Neff and five players from Milan High School, about 56 kilometres southwest of Detroit. Rock talked to pro golfer John Daly, who suggested calling TaylorMade Golf, the Detroit Free Press and The Ann Arbor News reported Thursday. TaylorMade agreed to send the clubs by the end of the week. Neff said Rock told her to give TaylorMade and Daly all the credit. Besides the gift from Rock, Neff said she has received about 40 calls from people offering donations. http://www.themix.com/news/55/entertainment-news/521740/music-star-kid-rock-comes-to-aid-o

They are both very knowledgeable people and the did a terrific job.  For those that do not have the luxury of bringing in such talent to plan your event, the folks from Ryder Golf Events, out of Farmington, have the next best thing RyderGolfEvents.com . They announced the website as  golf’s first comprehensive tournament planning  It featured a six-minute planning “Wizard” designed to help map out and assist in planning every aspect of any type of golf event – from locating a tournament host course to accepting registration and payment to picking hole-in-one and million-dollar-shot contests. For more information click on:  http:///www.rydergolfevents.com. ===================================== A SECOND READ  -"THE WORKS OF ART" ===================================== I picked up "The Works of Art: Golf Course Designs by Arthur Hills" by Arthur Hills with Michael Patrick Shiels the other day, while look for a quote for the Mill Race GC in Jonesville. Frankly, I had but given it a cursory read at the time and was pleased that I had a chance to get back into it.   I found it a great read and the photography compelling.  Hills revealed he was not really into self promotion, but as his company began to be more global and the competition heated up, his marketing guru, Quentin Lutz felt a design book was needed.  One of Michigan's great golf writers ,Michael Patrick Shiels, was brought on to take Hill's remembrances and prepare them for print.   I would think that any fan of Art Hills would want this book.  The book was published in 2004 and can be purchased for $77 and changes at http://www.donning.com/ahills/index.html You might also enjoy an interview Tim Hygh did with Michael Patrick Shiels when the book first came out.  Hygh and Shiels are now a team at Michigan Radio Network.  Shiels does the morning show, with Hygh, being the Program manager. http://michigangolfer.tv/2004shows/show20/index.html Michigan Golfer Television Shows which feature Arthur Hills/ and partner Steve Forrest include: Pheasant Ridge GC-with Bill Shelton  http://michigangolfer.tv/2002shows/show19/index.html Rose Creek  GC http://michigangolfer.tv/2004shows/rosecreek/index.html Red Hawk GC http://michigangolfer.tv/2005shows/redhawk/ The Arthur Hills Michigan Golf Trail -with Jack Berry   http://michigangolfer.tv/2004shows/show18/index.html Inverness Remodeled -with Bill Shelton http://michigangolfer.tv/2003shows/show13/index.html Quentin Lutz on Arthur Hills Golf -with Phyllis Barone http://michigangolfer.tv/2003shows/arthurhills/index.html The Works of Art- with Tim Hygh and Michael Patrick Shiels http://michigangolfer.tv/2004shows/show20/index.html ================================================== JOE DUTHLER OF CANDLESTONE INN  & RESORT PASSES ================================================== Joe Duthler, owner of Candlestone Inn & Resort in Belding, passes away this week after a long illness.  He was 86. Because of his bad health, Duthler had the course up for sale.  Candlestone is a 280 acre parcel that features an award winning W. Bruce Matthews 18 hole golf course,  25 newly remodeled motel rooms,  a 200 seat restaurant and a conference room that seats 175. The facility is located 25 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids,  15 minutes from Rockford and 8 minutes from Greenville,  Michigan.  http://candlestone.com =========================================================== MICHIGAN GOLFER TELEVISION - GOLF COURSE PREVIEW ================================================== **NOW SHOWING** Gaylord The Natural Larry Bowden, course owner and one of the original members of the Gaylord Golf Mecca, is celebrating the 15th anniversary of his Jerry Matthews course, The Natural http://michigan
