In The News ... Lake Michigan Hills Duffers Defy The Odds -- Literally!

Golfers at Lake Michigan Hills Golf Club were setting records early in the 2012 golf season when the 7th Hole-In-One of the Season was recorded on May 24th! "I have never seen anything like this in all of my years in the golf industry, especially on such a challenging course like Lake Michigan Hills," stated Wayne "Gooch" Yamaguchi, Head Golf Professional at Lake Michigan Hills.

The odds of a Hole-In-One are 1 in 12,500 rounds, and with only 5,335 rounds on the books by May 24th, Lake Michigan Hills is quickly becoming the toughest lucky course one can play!

Lake Michigan Hills Golf Club, Benton Harbor, Michigan, a 4-Star Certified Course

Lake Michigan Hills Golf Club, established in 1969, features a classic design masterpiece by Charles Maddox Sr. Formed from a fruit orchard, the Lake Michigan Hills layout includes lush tree-lined fairways and elevation changes that are atypical for the Great Lakes. Golf Digest consistently rates this gem as a 4-Star venue and one that is always a top golfing destination in Southwest Michigan.

Lake Michigan Hills boasts a rich history of great golf. As host to the Western Amateur Qualifier, several golfing greats such as Kenny Perry, Adam Scott and Payne Stewart have faced the Lake Michigan Hills challenge on their way to successful golfing careers.

The challenge begins from the 455-yard Par-4 first hole, which offers an ample landing area. The second shot is to a green that slopes away from the golfer with bunkers protecting the front of the green and hazards to the left and right. For the everyday golfer, the smart play is to lay up and play the hole as a Par-5.

Lake Michigan Hills offers great scenery and elevated tees featuring a memorable view of the first hole from the clubhouse.

The challenge continues as the front nine progresses with the real challenge being the shot into the green. Even though the greens are large, almost all of the greens are well protected with bunkers and elevations ... creating the need for an extra club on your approach shot. As former club champion lan Davidson has said, "Play for the center of the green on every shot and if you hit it close to the hole, it's an accident."

After making the turn, you will find yourself with another elevated tee on the Par-5 tenth hole. This one is a great chance for birdie if you can manage to avoid the trees on this tight fairway. Hole # 10 finishes on a double green that shares space with Hole # 7. From Holes # 11 - # 16, you will have several short holes that require accuracy from the tee and large undulating greens that will challenge your putting expertise.

When you reach Hole # 17, you'll face a Par-3 that is 226 yards from the tip with an elevated green where you might need to "club up" two or three clubs to make the large green. And once on the green, you might face a fast downhill putt that breaks at 20 feet.

The finishing hole at Lake Michigan Hills is a real sleeper. Although it only plays 365 yards from the back tees, keeping your tee shot in the fairway is vital. With a big bunker guarding the left side of the green and a tree protecting the right side, Hole # 18 is no easy birdie hole.

After golf, you can rest up with a cold beverage and tasty sandwich in the Lake Michigan Hills lounge. Lake Michigan Hills also offers a nice selection in the golf shoppe with all the latest styles and great prices. You can even take a club out on the course with you when you want to demo the latest and greatest.

If you need to work on your game, professional Yamaguchi offers free lesson nights on Wednesday (buy a bucket, get a lesson) to help you fine tune your game. And if you need personal attention, private lessons are also available. If you want to learn about Gooch's teachings, visit The Original Gooch Golf Blog.

Lake Michigan Hills Golf Club is also a "Offers for Golfers" participant ... do you have your Pass yet?
