As the city grew, so did its need for increased recreational facilities. Thus, after acquiring some additional property in the late 90's, Don Childs and Associates were brought on to build nine new holes, remodel the former nine and create a new area for golf instruction. Added to the mix was a the construction of a new clubhouse and an underground tunnel to connect each of the nines. We met with Don Childs and his chief designer John Zaliagiris to check out their work and also get a little more acquainted. Childs and Associates have been active for more than 30 years and have worked in five states. Of note in Michigan, is their work at Cattails GC in South Lyons, City of Flint's four courses, Gaylord CC, Michaywe Pines in Gaylord , Maple Leaf GC in Linwood, Stony Creek GC and Wawonowin GC in Ispheming. They also had the opportunity to remodel their earliest work, Michaywe Pines It is rare when an architect can revisit their early work to bring a course into a new generation of golfers. Childs originally built Michaywe Pines 30 years ago. They added new tees did some bunker work and also enlarged a pond on the finishing hole. They are currently finishing up work on a 27-hole facility near Cleveland and then like other golf architects are looking around for new work. French Lick Resort This fine old lady has been given the ultimate "Nip and Tuck" job that cost her news owners somewhere north of 380 million dollars.  We won't find out the total until Pete Dye completes his "Swan Song" course in late 2008 or Spring 2009. Golf-  Bendelow Course The front nine of the Tom Bendelow course has given way to the casino at French Lick.  The back nine has been remodeled, in the spirit and name of Tom Bendelow and is scheduled to open this summer. There will also be a state of the art golf instruction area, headed up by Mike Kerby.  While plans are not final, there is some discussion with Golf Digest in making it one of their schools. Ross Course Formerly known as the "Hill Course", the Ross Course has recently undergone  a 4.6 million dollars restoration project. The last time we were here, Director of Golf Dave Harner had the original  design work from Ross displayed on the club house walls.  The  restoration followed those original plans and has returned the course to Donald Ross' early vision. Plus, they have added another 450 sprinkler heads, rerouted the cart paths to make them less intrusive,  returned the greens and tees to their more traditional squared look and 35 bunkers were added back to the course. This was also the venue for the 1924 PGA Championship, which Walter Hagen won on the final hole, beating Englishman, Jim Barnes.  Betsy Rawls won the 1959 LPGA Championship and Mickey Wright won it the following year. Dye Course Dave Harner has the original napkin that Pete Dye used to describe how he was going to convert Mt. Airy, the second highest peak in Indiana to a world championship golf course.  At the top of the second highest peak in Indiana, stands the mansion of former owner of French Lick Resort, Thomas Taggart.  The mansion will be turned into a guest house for the course.  We are preparing some of the video we shot for a future Michigan Golfer Television show. This promises to be on the scale of the work Dye did at Whistliing Straits, sans the water. Chris Lutzke is Pete Dye's man in charge on this project.  Lutzke, who also did Hawk's Eye in Bath, is partnered with Paul Albanese and are also currently wrapping up Sweetgrass in Escanaba. There are 443 guest rooms in the original French Lick Hotel, all of which have been outfitted with completely new furnishings. They have a 109,000 square-foot conference center, full service salon and spa and a new indoor outdoor pool complex and fitness center. West Baden West Baden Springs Hotel was originally named the "Mile Lick Inn" in 1850. The original structure burned down at the turn of the 20th century and the owner, Lee Sinclair, took the insurance money and built a world class hotel complete with the world's largest free-span dome.  The record for a domed building was finally beaten by the Houston Astrodome, almost 60 years later. French Lick is back and it is a destination to put on your to do list in the future. http://www.frenchlick.com/default_.asp You might also want to view a show we did there about four years ago, entitled "The Caddies at French Lick"  It is a fun show that will help you understand some of the early days at the resort.  http://michigangolfer.tv/2003shows/show3/index.html ========================================== 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 with some early golf photos and then harkens back to the opening of the course in 1896. 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/2007shows/harborpoint/ =========================================== STEVE FORREST ELECTED PRESIDENT OF ASGCA =========================================== Steve Forrest, a Toledo, Ohio-based golf course architect, was elected President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) at the organization’s recent 61st Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Ga.   Forrest, who has served as an ASGCA officer for the past three years, will also chair the ASGCA Executive Committee. Other members of the Executive Committee include Bruce Charlton, Palo Alto, Calif., Vice President; Doug Carrick, Don Mills, Ontario, Canada, Treasurer; Erik Larsen, Orlando, Fla., Secretary and Greg Muirhead, Montclair, N.J., Immediate Past President. Steve Forrest has worked with Toledo-based golf course architect Arthur Hills since his college days at Virginia Tech as a landscape architecture student. He joined Hills’ firm full time upon graduation in 1979, and the firm was reincorporated as Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates in 1999. Among the notable layouts recently designed by Forrest are The Links at Lighthouse Sound, Ocean City, Md.; Red Hawk Run, Findlay, Ohio; Sand Golf Club, Jonkoping, Sweden; The Journey at Pechanga, Temecula, Calif. and White Clay Creek Country Club, Wilmington, Del.   For more information about ASGCA, including a current list of members, log on to the ASGCA website at http://www.asgca.org or call 262/ 786-5960. ================ WE'VE GOT EMAIL ================  Hi Art, Enjoyed your review of Stuart Bendelow's book on his uncle in the Spring issue of Michigan Golfer; I've added an "Evaluative Review" note tag to the TGIF record for the book -- which you can see noted below.  In fact, if you ever want to add a link from Golf News or the magazine, etc., directly to our records for any design/maintenance books/items you discuss, please feel free to do so.  One of the neat things users can then do is click on a link to identify nearby libraries which own the book (if any, that is....), sorted by distance from where they are.  In this case, unfortunately, there's only two libraries so far in Michigan which apparently own the Bendelow item, including MSU. http://www.lib.msu.edu/cgi-bin/flink.pl?recno=113715 Every TGIF record has one of these 'deep links' to go directly to a specific item within the database.  They're 'public' and can be used by anyone in the world.  They're also pretty easy to figure out --  if you ever want to use them please do and  let me know if you have questions.  Another example would have been for  your discussion about The Works of Art : http://www.lib.msu.edu/cgi-bin/flink.pl?recno=95092 Always enjoy your good writing and interviews, especially when they're about design & maintenance issues.....:) with regards, Pete Pete Cookingham                                Turfgrass Information Center                Michigan State University Libraries       ======================================== MSU WOMEN'S TEAM STILL IN THE NCAA HUNT ======================================== ANN ARBOR – For a while on Saturday, it looked like the 20th-ranked Michigan State women’s golf team’s season might end in the NCAA Central Regionals for the second straight season.                 Sophomore Holly Niederkohr (Marysville, Ohio/Marysville) said she could remember the team falling five strokes short of the NCAA Championships last year as the team struggled. Senior Heather Rose (Chillicothe, Ohio/Chillicothe) said she was afraid she was playing her last collegiate round, as the Spartans were in danger of not finishing in one of the top-eight slots needed to earn a bid to the NCAA Championships.                 However, back-to-back birdies on the par-4, 357-yard No. 17 by junior Sara Brown (Tucson, Ariz./Salpointe Catholic) and senior Rachel Meikle (Ft. Wayne, Ind./Carroll) helped the Spartans clinch the school’s eighth bid to the NCAA Championships with an eighth-place finish in the NCAA Central Regionals at the University of Michigan Golf Course. The Spartans finished with a three-day score of 49-over-par 901 (295-295-311), five strokes ahead of ninth-place finisher Arkansas. “I just kept telling the team to grind it out,” Michigan State head coach Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll said. “Sometimes out here, bogeys are fine. They all hung in there and that’s why we’re in the eighth slot.”                 The Spartans entered the final round in seventh-place, two strokes ahead of both Arkansas and Arizona. Arizona fired a final round 293 to jump to fifth place while Arkansas finished the final round with a 30-over-par 314, three strokes behind the Spartans’ final round 311. Southern California earned the regional title with a three-round total of 17-over-par with Georgia, Texas Christian, Indiana, Arizona, Vanderbilt and Tennessee also earning bids to the NCAA Championships in Daytona Beach, Fla., with the four-round tournament beginning Tuesday, May 22.

Pellucid said that April_s poor weather will likely have a major impact on April rounds played. Those figures, compiled by both Golf Datatech and NGF, will likely be down 10% or more for the month and drag the year-to-date numbers further into negative territory The year-to-date GPH through April fell 10% versus a year ago. Performance across Pellucid's 24 weather-based regions varies but the breadth numbers show how widespread the carnage was, with 13 of 24 regions showing declines of 2% or more for the month. This puts the year-to-date breadth ratio (favorable to unfavorable) at 6:16 with the remaining two regions in neutral territory Interested parties can find more information on Pellucid's weather capabilities at www.pellucidcorp.com.

The event will mark the sixth NCAA Division II national championship to be held at the Michael Hurdzan-designed course. The 2006 Division II Women's Championship will be held this May at The Meadows, the fourth time that event has been held in Allendale. The Meadows hosted the 2001 NCAA Div. II Men's Championship, which was won by West Florida. The 2007 event will be held May 23-26 and be conducted as a 72-hole medal play championship. The par-72 layout stretches out to 7,034 yards from the championship tees. For more information about The Meadows, call 616/895-1000 or visit www.gvsu.edu/meadows. ===================== "CAN I PLAY THROUGH?" ===================== A man was about to tee off on the golf course when he felt a tap on his shoulder and a man handed him a card that read "I am a deaf mute. May I play through, please?" The first man angrily gave the card back, and communicated that "No, he may NOT play through, and that his handicap did not give him such a right." He then teed up his ball, and with a mighty swing of his pitching wedge lobbed the ball right on the green for a par 3. Just as he was about to put the ball into the hole he was hit in the head with a golf ball, laying him out cold. When he came to a few minutes later, he looked around & saw the deaf mute sternly looking at him, one hand on his hip, the other hand holding up 4 fingers. Thanks and a Tip of the Tam to our jokemeister, Dr. Jack Minzey for sending this along. ======================================================================= NUMBER OF CORE GOLFERS HIGHER THAN PREVIOUSLY REPORTED ACCORDING TO NGF ======================================================================== Jupiter, Fla. – According to a new national study of golf participation in the U.S., the number of Core golfers (adults age 18+ who play eight or more rounds a year) is higher than previously reported. The Core golfer number is estimated to be 15.0 million as compared to a figure of 12.5 million published by NGF a year ago. The study also found that the number of junior golfers increased between 2005 and 2006, from 4.4 million to 4.8 million kids ages 6 to 17. The overall number of golfers for 2006, counting anyone age 6 and above who played at least one round of golf during the year, is estimated at 28.7 million, down 2.0% from the prior year. The research study was done as a joint effort of the newly formed USA Sports Participation Study, a collaboration of four associations that have been doing sports and fitness participation research separately for a number of years: Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association, National Golf Foundation, Snowsports Industries America and the Outdoor Industry Foundation. In February 2007, the partnership surveyed a random sample of 60,169 individuals from the online panel of Synovate, a leading market research firm. Respondents were asked about their participation in 114 fitness activities and sports, including golf. The data was statistically weighted (by gender, age, income, etc.) to reflect the total U.S. population age 6 and above. "This year’s study is superior to ones we’ve done in the past, primarily due to the larger sample size of 60,000," says NGF president and CEO Joe Beditz. "This larger sample gives us a more detailed view of the American golfer than we have ever had, and we also have better information on other sports and fitness activities that golfers engage in." ====================================================  UPCOMING MICHIGAN GOLFER TELEVISION SHOWS IN 2007 ==================================================== French Lick Resort's Renaissance-with Dave Harner Hemlock Golf Course-with John Kennedy Ireland's Ryder Cup-with Susan Bairley and Mike Biber Jack Berry and the PGA Lifetime Journalism Award-with Tom Dreesen Masters Major Achievement Award-with William Porter Payne and Craig Heatley Native American Cup III-with Henry Boulley Jr. Santee-Cooper Golf-with "Shot" Shuler and Bob Peebles  Dave Hill-with Jack Berry The Michigan Golfer Television Channel http://michigangolfer.tv YTD 643,897 viewers (Stats are for the past 13 months) ================================================================== SPRING ISSUE OF THE MICHIGAN GOLFER MAGAZINE NOW ONLINE Vol 25.
