Merion’s dressing room has a classic look.

History is everywhere at the Merion Golf Club, especially in the locker rooms. The two-story space in the stone pavilion features hundreds of lockers to accommodate its members and guests, all in a classic atmosphere.

Rows of mint green lockers line the room’s exterior, while raised ceilings with windows above allow light to filter into the room. Calling it celestial might be a bit of a stretch, but there is something about the space that feels sacred.

Ahead of this year’s Curtis Cup, we took a step inside Merion to experience all it has to offer. Check out below for a look at one of the coolest places in golf.

Stairs lead to the second floor cloakroom. After being greeted by a locker room attendant, you enter this open space with high ceilings.

The first locker alcove has a small window at the far end overlooking the practice green and, beyond, the 18th green. Not a bad place to change shoes after the tour.

Historic club artifacts adorn the poles separating the lockers.

The lockers aren’t flashy, but their age is part of the charm.

Merion’s dressing room comprises two floors, with an opening in the middle to look down to the ground floor below.

A shower after the round is a must, and towels are provided in neatly stacked pyramids.

Houston County’s only 18-hole golf course opened on April 1, 2022 under new ownership. Jim Wieser, Bill Schmitz, Scott Iverson and Dave Bubbers were able to play a round of golf on their new course that day; the next day it snowed, forcing them to cancel a college golf tournament scheduled on the course.

The April weather was not very cooperative for the new owners with only a few sunny days, but the diehards still came to play. Valley High is usually the first golf course to open in the area due to the course configuration and its ground. After a frosty start to the season, the club was able to host the TRGA (Three Rivers Golf Association) on the weekend of April 23-24.

When asked how they came to take on this adventure, everyone looked at Jim Wieser. Jim had noticed the golf club for sale on Marketplace and his interest was piqued. He mentioned it to Bill Schmitz who was “a bit interested” as well. Bill spoke to Scott Iverson and Dave Bubbers and soon the foursome bought the golf club, which had been on sale for about two years. The four men have known each other for some time. Dave and Bill are brothers-in-law and Scott is married to a cousin of Jim.

The men bring a variety of skills to their partnership. Jim Wieser is superintendent at Wieser Brothers; he assumed responsibility for the golf course grounds and equipment on site. Scott Iverson works for a non-profit organization, ORC Industries, and handles the internal financial and technical aspects of the business. Bill Schmitz owns the TimeOut Tavern in La Crescent and will use his experience to run the bar and restaurant at Valley High. Dave Bubbers, an electrician with Graf Electric in La Crescent, calls himself a jack-of-all-trades for Valley High. The men shared that they’ve taken a “shotgun approach” with everyone trying to do it all right now. They noted that there were many “squirrel moments” as they got up and ran.

In charge of day to day operations are Jim Bastys who is the course superintendent and Joe Smader who is the clubhouse manager. Eventually, Valley High hopes to employ about 20 employees.

The new owners have acknowledged that the course took a lot more work than expected. In addition to recent weather challenges, 19 trees fell on the course during recent storms and had to be removed. Plus, they had the challenge of getting all the equipment working for the season. The men are all locals and make a point of using small local businesses for any work they need.

Changes in the near future are centered around the restaurant and bar. They can’t wait to bring Valley High back with a great menu. They added homemade pizzas and flatbreads to their menu, along with burgers, croissants, and other sandwiches. More dining options are planned for the clubhouse soon.

Banquet halls are available with seating for 100-125 and a dance floor. They’ve already hosted a fundraiser at the facility and booked a graduation party.

No major changes are forthcoming for the course – it is already an excellent course that golfers love to play. Subscriptions purchased for the year are already in place and will be honored. There may be new promotions next year. The course known for the tree in the middle of the green of hole #16 will remain as is for the time being.

The vast majority of tournaments held at the club are for charitable causes or in someone’s memory. On May 21 and 22, the Valley High Armed Forces Day 3-man Calcutta Scramble will take place. Thirty-two teams will play with 10% donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Interested teams can register at ValleyHigh@acegroup.cc or call the club at (507) 894-4444.

So far, the quartet has had no disagreements to make decisions. According to Bill Schmitz, they wonder, “Will this make the course better? Will it improve the clubhouse? to drive decision making. The biggest challenge for their business right now is the same as for any business: costs. Gasoline and food prices weigh more heavily on their profits.

The objective of the new owners is to please the people of the region. They are not looking to compete with more distant golf courses. They also want to encourage more young people to take up golf. Currently, they cooperate with La Crescent and Houston schools and are their home golf course. Student golfers also get a discounted rate on summer membership.

The course is open from sunrise to sunset for golf (as long as there is no frost). Clubhouse hours should be determined – the more people come to visit, the more hours will be added. Jim, Bill, Scott and Dave look invite you to come visit them soon at Valley High, located just off Highway 16 between Houston and Hokah, for golf, food and drinks!

How to Make the Hugely Popular ‘Crushburger,’ According to a Golf Club Chef https://pilotknobparkgolf.org/how-to-make-the-hugely-popular-crushburger-according-to-a-golf-club-chef/ Sun, 08 May 2022 13:33:44 +0000 https://pilotknobparkgolf.org/how-to-make-the-hugely-popular-crushburger-according-to-a-golf-club-chef/ By: Josh Sens May 8, 2022 One of the many flavorful attributes of the Crushburger is a toasted brioche bun.

welcome to The clubhouse eatswhere we celebrate the most delicious food and drink in the game. Hope you brought your appetites.

***

The circuit pros aren’t the only ones crushing it these days.

Leaders do the same.

Except what they mash up is ground beef.

The result is an increasingly popular item in restaurants, pop-ups and golf course grills from coast to coast.

Some know it as the smash burger.

But at Arcis Golf, a course operator with some 70 private, public and resort clubs in its portfolio, they call it the Crushburger.

Among the Arcis clubs serving it is Dominion Country Club, San Antonio, where Jay Nash wears the toke.

We asked Nash what sets this breed of burger apart, in hopes that we, too, might start mashing it at home.

The meat of matter

In theory, anyway, you could make a Crushburger with ground pork, ground chicken, ground duck, etc. “Uh, but why?” Nash said. “Cows are good to eat.” Just make sure it’s high quality beef.

A ball, not a cake

When shaping ground beef into a patty, you can overload the meat, which can result in a tougher finished product. With the Crushburger, there’s no such risk because, well, you’re not making a patty at all. Instead, you shape ground beef into a meatball, which is then mashed on a hot griddle under special weights. The process creates a large surface area with a nice sear, and, says Nash, because crushing only occurs at the start of cooking, you lose less moisture, with juicier results.

Seasoning

Nash says it’s a secret, kept locked in a safe. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there is no problem with salt and pepper.

Toppings

Nash says the sauce on the Crushedburger is also secret, but we know it starts with mayonnaise, and no, he doesn’t work for the CIA. What we can also say for sure is that there are sliced ​​tomatoes and lettuce. Where you go from there is a matter of choice. Some of us believe that ketchup diminishes almost everything it touches. But go for it if you like it. Mustard. Onions. Pickles. Taste. The world is your condiment jar.

And the bun

Brioche, toasted and buttered. That’s what Nash suggests for rich, delicious flavor and appealing crunch.

Until the mid-20th century, the centerpiece of Halifax’s Southside was the 18-hole Gorsebrook Golf Club.

“It was built on the estate of a privateer named Enos Cullins,” said Halifax historian Blair Beed. “The family rented it for a golf course in the early 1900s.”

It was a popular golf course occupying a huge tract of land including what is now Saint Mary’s University.

“The front nine holes were at South Street,” Beed said. “And then they acquired through Inglis Street for the next nine holes.”

The golf course closed in the mid-1940s when the land was sold.

“In wartime, the army bought some for the barracks and it was divided,” Beed said. “The city bought it for a park and two schools and Saint Mary’s University bought it for its campus.”

Now there are several markers scattered around the neighborhood that serve as reminders that the golf course once existed.

“There are a few memories that are still there,” said John Bishop, who grew up near the course. “Like the stone pillars that formed the entrances and exits of the golf club.”

Beed said if you look closely at the sloping terrain, the area still looks like a golf course.

“The topography shows you it was a tough hill,” Beed said.

Beed also said Gorsebrook Park and Gorsebrook School serve as historical reminders that a golf course once stood on the south end of Halifax.

One of the golfers on the course then assaulted the man, leaving him with a head wound caused by a weapon believed to be a golf club.

GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) – The shareholders of Mississippi’s oldest golf course have made a very difficult decision. The Great Southern Golf Club in Gulfport closes May 9.

The original plan was to close the front nine after this weekend, but keep the holes north of the train tracks open. However, according to club chairman Ellis Hill, there simply isn’t enough play at Great Southern to make it work.

“I am very, very saddened to make this announcement. The Great Southern Golf Club has been a community treasure for generations,” Hill said. “Locals and visitors shared fond memories associated with the course. There were several deals to save the club that were close to being done, but didn’t materialize.

Shareholders tell WLOX News they don’t have enough members or public play to sustain operations. As a result, the entire golf course closes on the Monday following Mother’s Day.

Some memorabilia will be displayed by Arbor Properties, the new owner of the fairways and greens since last year. This includes photos of people such as President Woodrow Wilson and golfing legends Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen playing the course. As for the cobblestones bearing the names of club contributors and club sponsorship plaques, the club plans to allow contributors or their representatives to pick them up anywhere between May 8 and May 31. They are requested to contact the club house.

The club’s movable property, such as scrap metal, kitchen furniture and many other items, will be sold.

Great Southern is just off Hwy 90 east of Gulfport.

Revelstok residents trade their skis for golf carts as the Revelstoke Golf Club prepares for opening day on Friday, April 29.

General Manager Dean Jackson and the rest of the club are heading into a busy year on the greens as the sport experiences significant growth in the community.

The 2021 season has seen a huge increase in the number of rounds played on the course, both by those who reside here and by visitors.

Late last year, Jackson said 24,000 rounds of golf were played at the course during the 2021 season, compared to an annual average he estimates at around 15,000 rounds.

Of those 24,000, Jackson said 10,000 games were played by tourists and visitors from outside the community.

With warm weather on the horizon, there are plenty of rounds to be played on the course this season. On May 8, Revelstoke Golf Club is hosting a Community Day, giving locals the chance to play for free after 11 a.m. with a donation to the food bank.

Jackson also added Charles Beneteau as the club’s head professional this year.

Beneteau is a Class A professional with the PGA and has been in the business for 22 years.

Born in Windsor, Ontario, Beneteau started playing golf at the age of 13. His aspirations to become a professional golfer took him to West Vancouver Island, and he eventually turned pro at Pheasant Glen Golf Resort just outside of Nanaimo.

He jumped at the chance to work in Revelstoke and represent the golf club not only for the course, but also for the community. He said he knows how beautiful the area is and has heard of the amazing people in Revelstoke, and now that he’s here he embraces everything the city has to offer.

According to Beneteau, there are many opportunities to develop the sport of golf in Revelstoke.

“With the new course also coming to town, it will be a destination location and Revelstoke could really thrive throughout the summers,” Beneteau said.

Beneteau said retaining existing regulars and growing the game with new people in the community is key to the growth of golf in Revelstoke.

The new golf pro said hole 6 of the course was his favorite because of the gorgeous mountain views that complement the rushing river, freshly mowed greens and bunker.
