It's not too late to stop talking northern Michigan for the 2009 golf season
Summer may be over in Michigan, but there’s still golf amongst the changing of the fall colors to be played in October. So we’re not adverse to rolling out more articles in the next couple weeks from my recent northern Michigan golf trip, where I played nine courses in five days and could count every cloud I saw in the sky during the week on one hand.
Here’s a few things we’ve posted from the jam-packed trip thus far, with plenty more on the way:
I was a guest on the Michigan Talk Network with Michael Patrick Shiels in the Morning this week, click here for the segment. Shiels, a former contributor to our network, was curious about my thoughts on Michigan as an international destination from a more macro perspective, since I’ve been everywhere from Scotland to Morocco for golf. Michigan.org has been on a national marketing blitz in 2009, so you’ve no doubt had some seeds planted in your head whether it’s in magazines or Golf Channel.
To listen to my segment on northern Michigan with Dave Berner on TravelGolf.com This Week, click here. We talk a little more specifically about which courses I played and where in northern Michigan.
One of those courses was Dunmaglas Golf Course, and we’ve got a fresh course review and photo gallery up on MichiganGolf.com. Some of the courses I’d played during my trip I’d seen before, like Bay Harbor, Tullymore, Forest Dunes, and the Boyne Highlands Hills course. But Dunmaglas was an eye-opener, since I’d never played or heard of it before. It’s an affordable option near Bay Harbor but by no means a “cheap” course, as it’s easily Top Ten in the north, probably higher in my book.
Stay tuned for plenty more from Michigan on our network, and if you have a northern Michigan golf question or story of your own, don’t hesitate to let me know.
