MGN ON THE ROAD
We are still recovering from both jet and Euro lag since we touched down from our Ireland
trip last week. it was memorable to be sure. We golfed Waterville, The Dooks at Dingle
Bay and toured Lahinch, the Old Tom Morris and Alister MacKenzie designed course, and
Adare Golf Course as well. We also visited the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, King
John's Castle, Skellig Rock, Valentia Island, Muckross House and Adare Manor.
We also caught a Liam O'Connor and Lisa Aherne concert in Kilarney. They played a Henry
Ford gala during the Oakland Hills Ryder Cup in 2004. They were fantastic then and are
still headlining throughout the world. We used some of their music as background on our
two new Ireland shows on Michigan Golfer Television. Enjoy.
Cathal O'Sullivan, a newbie in the golf travel business, did a fine job in setting the
trip up. He is concentrating on the Michigan market and has been a vendor at the past two
Michigan Golf Shows.
Again, great time, great golf and great rain.
MICHIGAN GOLFER TELEVISION
Two Ireland Shows on You Tube
Adare Golf Club with Cathal O'Sulivan
Ireland's Adare Manor was the site for Robert Trent Jones final major golf course design.
It is now the home of the Irish Open and was recently extended to its 7453 yards. The
Maigue River and a 14 acre lake provide the usual water hazards that Robert Trent Jones
so loved to create.
You Tube Video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=7m5bqfpy1oI
Lahinch Golf Club with Jennie McCafferty and Bob McCavery
Lahinch Golf Links almost has it all. They have the history, built in 1892, designer
blood lines in Old Tom Morris and Alister MacKenzie, a storied hole in No. 5 and a
location on the Atlantic Ocean. What they don't have, according to professional Bob
McCavery, is the infrastructure to support a major tournament. It is not near a major
city, they have narrow roads and there are few hotels. Our video gives you a nice look at
the town, course and a recounting of the history by Bob McCavery, who has been the pro
since 1959 after he took over from his dad, who was there for a couple of decades himself.

Ryder Cup Memories- Cathal O'Sullivan interviews Doug Bell and Mike Biber of Osprey
Our travel planner for our Ireland trip was Cathal O'Sullivan. In our show, O'Sullivan
chats with Mike Biber and Doug Bell of Osprey Management about their experience at the
Ryder Cup and their impressions of Ireland. They were two of almost a hundred people from
the Osprey Management Group that attended the event. Our show host, Cathal O'Sullivan of
Sullivan Golf & Travel, discusses the Ryder Cup and some of the memories of the event that
the Osprey people brought back.

the need to downsize the screen is less important. However, you will still need to
downsize the You Tube screen on some of our earlier renderings for better viewing.
NATIVE AMERICAN CUP CANCELLED
Since this event was originally scheduled for August 3, it seems rather obvious that the
event was cancelled. However, Henry Boulley Jr. was trying to change the date to give him
time to line up additional sponsors to make it happen, etiher at the Grand Traverse Resort
& Spa, or perhaps at Wild Bluff in Bay Mills. A few people stepped up, but it was too
little too late. There is hope that they can bring the tournament back next year.
TOM DOAK ARTICLE ON PORTFOLIO
Dave Richards, CEO of Golf and Resort Marketing, passed on an article that appeared in
Portfolio on Tom Doak. It is a nice read and we supply a quote to entice you into read
the entire story.
“He remembers every hole he’s ever played, good or bad,” says the Chicago greeting-card
magnate Mike Keiser, who enlisted Doak to design his Pacific Dunes course in Bandon,
Oregon. Opened in 2001, it was named the country’s best resort golf course by Golfweek
magazine in 2006—placing just ahead of Pebble Beach. “It is clear from Tom’s work that he
has got it; he’s the architectural giant of his time.”
Mike Biber, of Osprey Management, has recently been talking to Doak about tweaking his
Black Forest course.
Bill Fountain, passed on a scorecard from the grandkids of one of their investors. The
card included scores of 3 cranes, 8 geese, 3 frogs, a deer (doe), a carp and a racoon
track. This might be the new course record at The Majestic at Lake Walden.

analyzing the game of golf for over fifty years.He spent 23 years as “the voice of golf,”
for CBS Sports covering the game’s greatest events including the Ryder Cup and the Masters
at Augusta National Golf Club.
The Ben Wright Crystal Mountain Invitational is a two-day event in which golfers compete
as two-person and five-person teams on the Betsie Valley course on Friday, August 24 with

PATRIOT GOLF DAY-SEPTEMBER 1
Patriot Golf Day is a joint initiative of The PGA of America and the United States Golf
More than 2,000 facilities nationwide are signed up to participate in the event. A
complete list of participating facilities can be found by state at http://www.playgolfamer
Golfers have an opportunity to donate $1 to Wounded Warriors, Inc., which will benefit the
Fallen Heroes Foundation to support families of those who have become disabled or lost
their lives in the line of military duty.
Public facilities will request an additional $1 for each green fee processed Sept. 1,
while private facilities will ask patrons to contribute donations.
Patriot Golf Day is spearheaded by PGA Professional Dan Rooney of Stillwater, Okla.
Rooney, an F-16 pilot in the 125th Fighter Squadron of the Oklahoma Air National Guard,
has logged two tours of duty to Iraq, and following his most recent tour he began to think
of ways he could stay involved in the war effort. Rooney is also in the process of
establishing The Fallen Heroes Foundation, which will pay for the education of a spouse
and/or children who have lost a parent in Iraq or Afghanistan.

ED SEAY DIES AT 69
Ed Seay, a past president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, died August
14, 2007 at his home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., after a long battle with cancer and
related health problems. He was 69. Seay served as ASGCA president in 1976-1977 and was
given the ASGCA Distinguished Service Award during the organization of golf course
architects’ 2006 Annual Meeting.
During a career that spanned five decades, he was responsible for nearly 300 new golf
courses and more than two dozen golf course renovations, including Bay Hill Club. Most of
his designs were created in partnership with golf legend and ASGCA Fellow Arnold Palmer,
with whom Seay began working in 1972 and formed Palmer Course Design Company in 1979.
Designing a golf course in Communist China in 1981, Seay was among the first American golf
course architects to work outside the United States.
Among Seay’s representative golf courses are Sawgrass C.C., Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.; The
Tradition G.C., LaQuinta, Calif.; The K Club, Straffan, Ireland; Four Seasons Resort at
Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Rica; Kapalua Village Course, Maui, Hawaii; Aviara, Carlsbad,
Calif.; Old Tabby Links, Spring Island, S.C.; Tralee C.C., Tralee, Ireland; and Adios G.C.
in Coconut Creek, Fla.
In Michigan, the Seay/Palmer duo was responsible for The Legend, Northville Hills, King's
Challenge, The Ravines and the Coyote Preserve.
JUNE GOLF ROUNDS UP
After rising 5.4% in May, June rounds played rose 3.4%. Because May-June has a high volume
of rounds, the year-to-date deficit dropped dramatically, according to the National Golf
Foundation. Year-to-date rounds, which had fallen 9.0% through April, were down only 1.8%
The reporting is based on data from operators at more than 1,800 golf facilities. For the
full year 2006, rounds played were up 0.8%.
Of the 11 regions surveyed, seven showed year-to-date declines. The Southwest region was
the strongest, up 3.4%. The Southeast, Southwest and Northwest regions showed increases of
between one and two percent. The sharpest decline was in the South Central region, down
10.9% year-to-date. The Mid-Atlantic region trailed, down 5.3%.

GOLF CONSUMER ACTIONS AND MOTIVATIONS
Who plays golf and why? According to the results of a recent NPD survey Golf: Consumer
Actions and Motivations, 18% of U.S. men and 3% of U.S. women have played golf in the past
year, but motivations for playing differ significantly by gender. On average, men started
playing golf at a younger age than women, with more than 90% saying they play for their
own personal enjoyment.
Although the majority of women also play for personal enjoyment, women are significantly
more likely to say they started playing golf to please someone else or to spend more time
with family members. Although golf has often been seen as a way of getting ahead in
business, only 5% of men and 3% of women said that business/professional ambitions
motivate their play.
Despite ranking _in-store demo_ as the leading influence on their decision to purchase a
golf club, a significant number of golfers are buying their clubs from Internet retailers.
Among those who bought clubs during the past year, more than 20% went online to make their
purchase, making the Internet more popular for purchasing than any individual retailer in
the U.S. (Note: data in the NSGA Sporting Goods Market report confirms this Internet
Although only one in 10 golfers said they took a golf-specific vacation during the past
year, 45% of female golfers and 38% of male golfers said they played golf while on a

LARRY KELLY'S STILL IN THE HUNT ON THE GOLF CHANNEL'S FORE INVENTOR ONLY
Brighton resident Larry Kelly and his Gyro Swing invention was one of five inventors from
the last batch of inventors to make the cut. Kelly and four other inventors will join
another previously selected group of five inventors to compete for the best product. The
finals will be held on September 9th.
Kelly's Gyro Swing is a swing training aid that utilizes a gyroscope motor attached to the
end of a club shaft that automatically places the club on plane. Last Tuesday, Aug. 21,
the 10 semifinalists met with expert pitch master and original television host of the Home
Shopping Network, Bob Circosta, and celebrity sales trainer Chelsea Scott. Circosta and
Scott coached the inventors on how to effectively pitch their products to the consumers
before visiting a Golfsmith store to present their products to customers.
Jim Thompson, CEO of program sponsor Golfsmith, gave Kelly's invention a big
"Wow" when he used it.
While not has riveting as "The Big Break", the show is interesting. Every year,
the PGA Merchandise Show features new products for the year. There are some really great
and really strange products released each year. Now we get a chance to see some of the
folks behind the products.
A Golf Channel release was used in preparation of the above article.
$10 MILLION UPGRADE NOW UNDERWAY AT SHANTY CREEK RESORTS
Construction is now underway at Shanty Creek Resorts’ Summit Village, one of three
villages located in the Grand Traverse Region in Bellaire, Michigan. A $10 million

RANDOM THOUGHTS AND NOTES
In a state often in need of some good news, it was gratifying and important to read about
Ford and GM’s stellar customer satisfaction ratings. In a study conducted by the
University of Michigan, Buick, Ford, Cadillac, and Lincoln-Mercury all tied for second,
behind Lexus, in rankings that asked people whether a product met their expectations and
how close it was to their ideal product in the auto category. This study followed a recent
J.D. Power report that had Buick tied with Lexus in quality for vehicles three years old.
Mercury and Cadillac finished in the top four. In the same UM study but in the separate
“large appliance” category, Benton Harbor’s Whirlpool Corp. topped the list in customer
Up in the Sleeping Bear Dunes area (Glen Arbor) a few weeks ago I marveled at the
stunningly beautiful surroundings. (Credit the late U.S. Senator Philip Hart and others
for having the vision and energy to making the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
designation a reality.) I met a gentleman from Atlanta (GA) at the picturesque Homestead
Resort and he said, “This area of Michigan and the Homestead Resort are one of the best
kept secrets in the country. People from Atlanta keep asking me why I vacation up here
each and every summer. And I won’t tell them because I want to keep it to myself.”
I also paid a visit recently to nearby King’s Challenge GC, the Arnold Palmer-Ed Seay
design. Although its conditioning is currently not up to snuff, the layout is still a
favorite of mine. Chief Designer Ed Seay, who passed away this past week, said he and
Palmer always prided themselves on designing player-friendly layouts, stubbornly resistant
to the stupid penal design pendulum of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The par-five 8th hole
at King’s Challenge is one of the best holes in northern Michigan and is mindful of
something one would find in the Blue Ridge Mountains in N.C. Here’s hoping more attention
and funds may be directed to this fine course’s maintenance budget.
Noticed on the CBS coverage of the PGA that Dan Rooney, the acclaimed Oklahoma-based PGA
professional and owner of Grand Haven GC, gave CBS broadcaster David Feherty a ride in his
Air National Guard F-16 jet. Feherty later returned the favor by having Rooney inside the
ropes for Tiger’s pairing on Sunday. Rooney, with two tours of duty as a Guardsman in
Iraq, is the catalyst behind the Fallen Heroes Foundation and various golf events which
benefit the families of service men and women lost in conflict. Dan and his father John
(who once was a keynoter at one of the early Michigan Golf Summits organized by Michigan
Golfer) purchased the Grand Haven GC several years ago and have done an admirable job in
investing in the facility and restoring the course to its once lofty position in Michigan
public golf. Incidentally, Sept. 1 is Patriot’s Day, organized by Rooney and supported by
the PGA of America and USGA whereby $1 will be donated to the Fallen Heroes Foundation for
every golfer playing that day at participating courses.
Finally, condolences to the Zylstra family of Grand Rapids on the news of the passing of
Michigan PGA member Bill Zylstra. Zylstra, 91, was an accomplished and most-respected PGA
professional, teacher and sales representative. A member of the PGA for 52 years, Zylstra
had 12 aces and competed in two U.S Opens. A lifetime member of Green Ridge/Egypt Valley
CC, Zylstra was the longtime sales representative for PowerBilt and ably covered a
multi-state area. With a wry sense of humor and an ever-friendly demeanor, Zylstra
personified the golfing gentleman.
