Deacon's Lodge

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...
