Gaylord, Michigan bills itself as America’s summer golf Mecca—and given the town’s 21 world class courses, and 20 lodging facilities, the good folk of Gaylord are probably right. I golf in that area on a regular basis during the summer, and can say with confidence that you won’t regret a golfing trip there. The courses are designed by top name architects, the land is beautiful, and the weather golfing perfect. You have never seen such blue skies.
To kick off the summer season, Gaylord is offering a FREE golf weekend on April 24 – 26, 2009. It’s likely to be a bit chilly still, given its northern location, but won’t require more than long pants and a light jacket.
“We have been doing this free golf weekend for four years now and it has been very popular for golfers looking to get out early and get a head start on the golf season,” explained Paul Beachnau, Executive Director for the Gaylord Area Chamber and Tourism Bureau.
“We believe that this year, the weekend will have even more meaning with the current state of the economy and that we hope struggling golf consumers who otherwise might not take a golf trip will look at this as a great opportunity to still take a golf vacation.”
To participate, you just need to book an overnight stay at a participating hotel. You’ll then get a coupon for a free round. For a complete list of participating hotels, golf courses and rates please log onto http://www.freegolfgaylord.com.
The Gaylord Golf Mecca offers something for everyone including opulent resort destinations such as the nationally acclaimed Treetops Resort, Otsego Club, and Garland Resort. Complimenting the resorts are high-quality public courses such as Black Forest, Black Lake, Michaywe, Mountain Lakes, The Loon, Marsh Ridge, The Natural, Black Bear, Elk Ridge, and Gaylord Country Club, as well as fine and casual dining, and quaint inns. It’s an experience golfers of all skills and tastes can enjoy.
