|WAYS GOLF GIVEs BACK||June 23, 2018 |
WGC GC hosted the 6th MAK-A-THON 100 Holes of Golf yesterday. 42 golfers played in this year’s event in which each golfer played 100 holes to help raise funds for the Mark A. Kreusch Memorial Fund.
Each golfer played a total of 5 rounds (two balls on two par 3’s each round for 20 holes a round) in their own cart.
The event is a laid back, fun environment with unique aspects like a break-the-glass contest and kids with surprise water guns to help cool off participants. The MAK Fund is in memory of Mark Kreusch who tragically passed away at the age of 4 after a boating accident in 2007.

|EMBRACING BUNKER IMPERFECTIONS |
Bunkers play a prominent role in golf. They provide strategy, challenge and aesthetic beauty and are a topic of many spirited and enjoyable discussions after a round.
The earliest bunkers were naturally occurring areas of bare sand scattered throughout the links landscape. They were rough and rugged places, scoured by wind and filled with footprints and clumps of vegetation.Over time, bunkers became formalized and golfer expectations for bunker playability increased. Today, the bunkers at most golf courses are intensively maintained and account for a large part of the maintenance budget.
