Grand View Lodge

Every once in a while we all need to take a step back from the 21st century rat race we call life and decompress. But quite honestly there are not that many places left in the world where time has essentially stopped. If stepping into a time machine whose destination is set for 1916 s...

Baker National Golf Course

Of all the psychological ploys I know, denial has to be the most useful one to a golfer (except its excessive use, such as denying that you just sliced one into the swamp). Thus when you step up to the 10th tee at Baker National Golf Course in Medina, it's best to ignore that if you m...



Silver Springs Golf Course in Monticello

Giants Ridge

Another golf season and another millennium have come and gone but there are some things in this world that just don't change. Politicians lie and citizens believe them. People remain totally preoccupied with how they present themselves to the world. Human males think about sex all the...
