RICHMOND, R.I. (June 2, 2010) - Meadow Brook, just one of the few new golf courses opening in the U.S. this year, makes its grand debut this week. The picturesque layout, the longest in the state, is set on the land that formed this small town’s historic public course of the same name, but the new Meadow Brook is a vastly different course.
2004 event champion qualifies for the most elite foursome in golf
Phil Mickelson is no stranger to Sunday drama in a major championship. Nor is the No. 2-ranked golfer in the world a stranger to donning a green jacket, which he did Sunday, winning the Masters and earning the first berth in the most difficult tournament in the world to qualify for – the PGA Grand Slam of Golf.
Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms Resort has been named "2010 Golf Course of the Year" by the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA). NGCOA is the leading authority on the business of golf course ownership and management. Official recognition is scheduled for February 11, 2010 during the Association's Annual Conference in San Diego.
Maybe you’ve been to all the other golf meccas in the United States, or maybe you’re looking to extend your golf season this fall or get a jump on it next spring or maybe the golf buddy trip isn’t working out this year and it’s time for a family vacation. No matter which way you slice it, Gulf Shores will fit the bill nicely.
Located along the Gulf of Mexico between Florida’s Panhandle and Mobile Bay is Alabama’s modest 32 mile coastline. The Gulf Shores area maybe be short in distance but more than makes up for it in quality amenities, golf and otherwise.
Maybe more importantly, the amenities are served up with a full dose of true Southern Hospitality, not the manufactured kind that was beaten into the help at corporate seminars, but the real and genuine kind that comes from the heart and from true Southern culture. Almost as importantly is the value in the many hospitality and golf offerings. The Gulf Coast of Alabama is a seriously good deal.
