esidents Golf Club America , popularly known as RGCA, is the nation’s leading golf club comprised exclusively of residents from communities of the top home builders and property management companies who are licensed by RGCA to offer golf memberships as a sales or rental incentive. Oakwood Management Company, the largest manager of residential properties in Columbus, Ohio has been a licensed RGCA Sponsor for over six years and knows firsthand the power of this rental incentive and its impact on occupancy. As Oakwood Marketing Director, Christine Canavan, is quick to point out “our decision to become an RGCA Sponsor and offer golf memberships as a rental incentive was frankly very easy. Oakwood recognized that lifestyle was becoming a major focus of today’s renter and that a program, such as RGCA, would be extremely attractive to renters seeking the greatest lifestyle value in a highly competitive rental market.” Importance of the RGCA program on lifestyle rental decisions is best illustrated by Jeff Klein, an executive with Roxane Laboratories and resident of Asherton of Dublin Apartments. “When I transferred to 4

004-005 RGCA.indd 1

Columbus, the opportunity to play free golf as an Oakwood resident is why we rented at Asherton, an outstanding professionally managed community.” As Oakwood indicates in its advertising, the RGCA membership is totally free to a resident signing a lease at one of their participating communities. As a member of RGCA, the resident and their guests play golf with golf cart totally free at all RGCA participating golf courses, with no hidden extras. As the ad indicates, Sign a Lease and Tee-it-Up! RGCA contracts with the top public and private golf courses in each major market area and then pays the golf course for each round of golf played by RGCA members, which includes full green fees and golf cart rental. Participating golf courses, such as Cumberland Trail, are quick to point out, “The RGCA program continues throughout the seven years of our participation to be a boon to golf like no other program we have participated in and we particularly appreciate the exceptional quality of players the RGCA program brings to our course”.

T

he best golf facilities aren’t just the ones with the toughest golf courses or largest practice areas. They aren’t always the one with the most impressive clubhouses or acclaimed meeting spaces. No, the best golf facilities are the ones that combine consistent quality, fair challenge, and most of all, a staff that is committed to the type of customer service that makes every golfer feel like a member every time they visit. It’s that combination -- that significant commitment -- that makes the golf experience at Pine Hill Golf Club a Central Ohio favorite for avid golfers. Perfectly located midway between Columbus and Lancaster, Pine Hills is a true locals’ course – a place where the staff remembers your name and respects your passion for the game. Whether your standard is course conditioning, friendly 8

008-009 Pine Hill Golf Club.indd 1

service or a fair golf challenge, Pine Hill is the facility that delivers it all. Indeed, at Pine Hill, the philosophy is the people make the experience, and given their track record, that is a high standard that shouldn’t be argued with. Whether just for a couple buddies or a large outing or group, the experience at Pine Hill is always the same. Players are treated as if a member for a day, which means no request goes unfulfilled. Given that, the experience on the golf course is always at the core of any outing and Pine Hill delivers in that regard. The Jack Kidwell-designed course offers a stern yet fair challenge that will prove enjoyable for players of any and all skill levels. Well known for its lavish landscaping and great attention to detail, Pine Hill is also an enjoyable test of golf. Kidwell crafted a layout that takes

advantage of the natural terrain but also added sloping and character to the course that combines into both scenery and challenge. Stretching to just less than 6,700 yards from the back tees and a more generous 6,200 from the middle, Pine Hill can be a test for players of any skill level. From the very start of the round, Pine Hill will challenge even the best golfer. The outward nine is a challenge beginning with the 512-yard par-5 opening hole and culminating with the shotmaker-delight 477-yard par-5 ninth hole. In between there is an engaging collecNo, 15 Tee tion of par 4s and par 3s that challenge even the best of golfers, highlighted by the 450-yard par-4 eighth hole, the toughest at Pine Hill. Pine Hill’s inward nine is the perfect culmination to a great day of golf and leisure. Like the front side, the back is book-ended by pair of risk-reward par-5s that provide two of the best scoring opportunities on the Clubhouse way in. Also like the front, the result of the round will be determined in the middle of the back nine. The 375-yard par-4 12th and the 610-yard par-5 17th, one of three par 5s on the back nine, are the stiffest challenges at Pine Hill. A popular venue for both charity and corporate outings Pine Hill offers a full program for any type of golf event. The course also plays host to both weekday and weekend SPRING/SUMMER 2011

A

new golf club outside of golfcrazed Columbus is doing its part to introduce new players to the game, as well as allow avid golfers to get in a round without having to schedule a vacation day. Little Bear Golf Village is a 10-hole track located in Lewis Center that’s affordable, family-friendly, and most important of all, fun for everyone regardless of ability. “In Central Ohio we’re blessed with so many really outstanding private clubs,” said Bill McCorkle, the brains behind Little Bear. “We are a public facility, and welcome everybody. We just ask 12

them to hit the ball and keep moving.” Designed by Dr. Michael Hurdzan, the same architect responsible for Wisconsin’s Erin Hills and Ohio’s Cooks Creek and The Golf Club of Dublin, Little Bear sits on 22 acres that used to be a flat soybean field, but now has rolling features, three large lakes, more than 1,000 trees, a beautiful waterfall and 22 sand traps. The greens at Little Bear are made of synthetic grass, but golfers will see actual tiny blades on the putting surfaces that always roll smooth and quick; they’re about 12 on the Stimpmeter.

“Evey course would love to have greens that look like ours,” McCorkle quipped. Little Bear has a bonus hole designed as a replica to the famous island green No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass. Players can take aim at this special hole for free with a paid 10-hole round or pony up $1 per shot. To no surprise, the island green has become a popular spot for local fundraisers, outings and charity events. Little Bear’s greens have the same number of blades per square inch as real greens, are disease proof and putt true SPRING/SUMMER 2011

and fast. They hold high shots real well. Synthetic greens achieve two objectives; they’re environmentally friendly, requiring no mowing or chemical treatment, and they keep maintenance costs down, which in turn keeps greens fees very affordable. With a breeze from the west, like the British Open, the greens are as fast as Augusta and the rough is tall fescue like the US Open; it’s like playing three Majors for $10 during the week.

Passion for the fruit of the vine swirled with quality, individuality and support for humanitarian causes around the globe. These wines are part of Gruppo La-Vis, one of the most prominent Italian companies in the wine business. Dating back to 1948, a group of Trentinian winemakers formed a cooperative and laid their foundation. Through in-depth study of the morphology of the land, it became possible to identify the best form of cultivation for each micro-zone, resulting in the most efficient relationship between the territory and production. Gruppo La-Vis is a group of wineries which share the same family values; each winery is rooted in its terroir and each has a deep-seated sense of individuality, which the group is committed to nurturing and communicating.

U.S. Golf Academy at Swan Lake Golf Resort

Learn to Score Better In this age of endless golf information, there are countless ways and means to learn to play the game of golf. You can follow the latest instruction article or video, take advice from the Internet or learn the old fashion way by taking advice from friends, based on the ideas they have seen, heard or read. Regardless, any or all of these approaches lead to continuous trial and error, usually leaving the player more confused and discouraged than improved. Eventually, the inevitable frustration drives a player to consider professional help, either in the form of a single lesson, or for many, the total emersion of attending a golf school or academy. For 40 years, the United States Golf Academy has been the choice of thousands of golfers looking for the satisfaction that comes from an improved golf game and the understanding of how the improvement was achieved. This is a successful operation achieved from longevity and positive “word of mouth” recommendations from our students, rather than slick marketing and false promises. The Academy’s promise is simple – a better golf game for each of our students! 32

032 Swan Lake.indd 1

The United States Golf Academy can make this promise for two reasons.

The United States Golf Academy uses the industry’s standards in golf swing, ball flight and putting analysis. The Trackman launch monitor and PuttLab diagnostic technologies are the most accurate and informative technologies available and they are used every day in the pursuit of a better golf game for our students. This combination of accurate data and human expertise allows our professionals to offer a clear understanding to our guests of what can be done and the easiest way to accomplish it.

Salute The Fort – One of Indiana’s Finest

A

mong the pantheon of golf courses emblazoned with the name of legendary architect Pete Dye, The Fort is not the flashiest. It’s not the most recognizable. It’s not the newest. It is the most historically significant, and a damn fine golf experience at that. Dye, along with associate Tim Liddy, re-tooled The Fort in 1998 to create the wonderfully wooded layout you’ll find tucked away in the shadows of downtown Indy. Designer and canvas just so happen to share a similar background. While Mr. Dye never saw combat time during his time enlisted in the United States Army, he was stationed at both Fort Benning (Georgia) and Fort Bragg (North Carolina). At Fort Bragg he served dutifully as greenskeeper of the base golf course, and during trips to nearby

34

034-035 The Fort Edit.indd 1

Pinehurst, developed a relationship with Donald Ross. His love for “digging in the dirt” was born and the rest is history. Established seven years after Fort Benjamin Harrison was officially decommissioned, Dye stepped in to craft a course in the middle of a 1,700-acre state park. Opened in 1906, Fort Ben was an active military base from World War I until Operation: Desert Storm. The base housed prisoners of war during the World War II. Currently ranked as the No. 3 place

you can play in the entire state of Indiana by Golf.com, The Fort Golf Course is a beautiful and challenging design known for its tree-lined fairways, rolling hills and undulating greens, which have Dye written all over them. The course has also received a 4.5-Star rating from Golf Digest and was rated No. 1 in Indiana by Golfweek. “There simply is not a better piece of property in Central Indiana upon which to build a championship golf course,” said Head Golf Professional Jon Chapple. “The Fort’s unpredictable topography and Pete Dye’s visionary architecture have joined to create experience that is unparalleled in the Hoosier State. It is not surprising that time after time the golf course is a regular feature in annual golf course rankings.” The Fort showcases the best of what Indiana golf has to offer. At 7,148 yards playing to a par 72 over nearly 240 acres, this layout meanders through trees, valleys and wetlands in order to create an experience that allows the golfer to enjoy nature and the game all at once. It’s an impossible chore to select just one signature hole at The Fort. Nos. 4, 5, 6, 11 and 18 are all worthy of that distinction. Each of these Dye creations shares a few common traits: thick woodlands and elevation changes, which demands a precise tee shot. Each hole then concludes on quick greens requiring a skillful sense of finesse. The course has also become a popular “Stay and Play” because of the variety of lodging options available. Golf packages at The Fort include 18 holes of golf with cart, overnight lodging, unlimited range balls, complimentary bag storage and souvenir bag tag and ball. The facility has become a trusted choice for corporate and charity outings. Here are some facilities available for lodging and events: SPRING/SUMMER 2011
