I just got an email from a southeastern Michigan course called Moose Ridge, suggesting that a gift certificate for a round would be a great Christmas gift for a golfer.
They’re right—and not just about their own track. Giving a course gift certificate is a terrific idea for golfers anywhere. I particularly like certificates to courses that I have yet to play, since it encourages me to try something new
If you’re in Southeastern Michigan, Moose Ridge—as their email suggests—would indeed be a good choice. Located in South Lyon, it’s a beautiful “Up North” style course that is marred only by the fact that it’s unwalkable. Otherwise, it’s a remarkable layout, requiring strategic thinking and the use of every club in the bag.
The email follows:
Having trouble picking out that perfect Christmas gift for the golfer on your list?
Look no further. Get them a gift certificate from Moose Ridge Golf course. Let them experience what Detroit Free Press as a top 10 course in SE Michigan.
This gorgeous course is tucked away in South Lyon and features a welcoming log-cabin-style clubhouse that makes you feel like you’re in some
place like Yosemite. Ray Hearn’s design is extremely challenging at every turn. The signature fourth hole is a par-five that measures 630
yards. It’s so long you can almost see the curvature of Earth from the tee box.
Give them the gift every golfer wants, an afternoon similar to an upnorth course, right here in their own backyard.
You can’t go wrong.
Contact the course at 248.446.9030, and we’ll send the gift certificate right to their house. What could be easier?
