The Grass is Always Greener on...the Golf Course


There is still a lot of summer left in Michigan. So, why not enjoy the remainder of it on the golf course in celebration of National Golf Month? It’s the perfect time for golfers to pack up their clubs and get to their local course. Or, even better get out of town for a vacation at a beautiful golf course resort. National Golf Month also features National Golf Day which was renamed Golf Day back in 1993 by the Professional Golfers Association (PGA). The sport promoted family inclusivity along with mentorship. So, pro-golfers can mentor or encourage a new golfer on the green. Metro Detroit offers great events, deals and unique specials to observe the month. Check them out below!
