Now that summer’s here and your game is in a nice groove, shouldn’t you be aiming at the flag on par-3s, not just aiming at the green? Staying at The Homestead is all about making memories. Why not try to add an ace to the list of special moments experienced at the resort?
The easiest way to get a hole-in-one (if there is such a thing as “easy”) would be to tee it up at Mountain Flowers. The scenic par-3 course overlooking Lake Michigan gives players nine chances at it. By comparison, Manitou Passage Golf Club offers up just five swings at glory, but every now and then the golf gods feel generous.
Sue Yotter of Indiana got engaged during a round at the Arnold Palmer course in July of 2010. Just two holes later, she sank her tee shot on the par-3 seventh hole, one of the more difficult par-3s on the course. Celebrity chef, Mario Batali, watched one of his sons ace the same hole a month later. Perhaps the best odds of a miracle shot come courtesy of the scenic downhill 17th hole, which plays 143 yards from the blue tees.
Celebrating with drinks in the clubhouse is an expense well worth the bragging rights when an ace comes calling.
