The Inn at Bay Harbor, teamed with the nearby 27-hole Bay Harbor Golf Club, is listed in the category of the Top 10 Northern U.S. Golf Resorts. In that grouping are such illustrious properties as Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont, The American Club in Wisconsin, the historic West Baden Springs Hotel in Indiana, and the Grand View Lodge in Minnesota. Taken and edited from a Boyne release. ================================================================================= NEW GENERAL MANAGERS TAKE OVER THE REINS AT MICHIGAN’S TOP GOLF PROPERTIES: By Norm Sinclair ================================================================================= As the 2011 golf season unfolds, two interesting story lines in Northern Michigan golf will be Barry Owens and Mike Husby and their new career challenges that could significantly impact the game in Northern Michigan. Owens spent half of his life working in his family’s Garland Resort in Lewiston. Now he is the general manager of the ionic but inconsistent Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Garland’s closest competitor. Husby, on the other hand has hop-scotched his way around the north, designing and building golf courses, and turning around under performing properties. His newest, and possibly most formidable assignment, is breathing life into the once defunct LochenHeath Golf Club in Williamsburg, just outside of Traverse City. It was just a few short years ago that Owens seemed set to be president-for-life of Garland, succeeding Ron Otto, his father-in-law. Otto developed the 3,000-acre property into four golf courses, a massive luxury log lodge, plush cottages, and French Norman-styled chateaus in the woods. During Owens’ tenure at Garland the resort earned a Four Diamond award excellence from AAA. P. 2

But Michigan’s economic collapse and a mountain of tax debts Otto incurred, forced him to sell his beloved family enterprise in August 2009. Owens stayed on until his eventual departure last spring. Last summer Treetops’ executive committee and Rick Smith, the resort’s managing partner, brought Owens in as a consultant and in October they persuaded him to forgo a impending career change and accept the job as general manager. For Owens the immediate challenge is bringing stability and professional purpose to the resort where management turnover has been the norm in recent years “Treetops is a fabulous property that has a lot of great opportunity from the terrific golf courses to great property for development,” Owens said. “We have a very good staff and they are excited to move forward.” Owens said changing the culture of the resort to positively energize and empower the staff to be as creative as they can be is a priority. “We want them to focus on what they can accomplish not what they thought they could not do in the past,” he said. “As a team we have made some progress. We expanded and improved our winter time activity with good results,” he said. Winter business was up 15 per cent over the previous year and the golf season looks very promising as advance bookings are up 17 per cent, he said. One area of improvement that will impact golfers this season will be the maintenance of the golf courses, a sore spot with long time visitors to Treetops. “We have renewed the emphasis on conditioning of the courses and they should be as good as they have ever been,” Owens said. In recent years the maintenance of the four courses had slipped from the previous standards one expected at Treetops. The Robert Trent Jones course that put the resort on the map, the Tom Fazio Premier, Rick Smith’s Signature, Tradition and Threetops all showed signs of wear and tear, crying out for remedial care. Owens joins the resort just in time to shepherd it through its silver anniversary year as one of the top golf resorts in the Midwest. As general manager Owens has been given total control by the executive committee to run the operation. Husby was coming off a successful five-year run at the Candlestone Golf and Resort in Belding, near Grand Rapids, when he was lured away by a group of Traverse City investors who bought the shuttered LockenHeath property at auction last December. Husby serves as general manager, and as former Northern Michigan PGA Player of The Year, he is equally qualified to handle the job as director of golf. If he can duplicate his success at Candlestone, LochenHeath’s investors and the dozen or so property owners will be delighted. When Husby joined Candlestone five years ago the club was doing half-a-million dollars a year in business, he said. When he left that bottom line had improved to $2.1 million.

“I have just one formula, I’m going to outwork my competitors,” said the hustling man who always seems to have an endless reservoir of ideas and energy. He is equally at ease designing merchandise displays in the pro shop or getting his hands dirty, tackling golf course maintenance or running a bulldozer. More than 20 years ago as general manager of Gaylord’s Michaywe golf complex he oversaw and codesigned the second course there, before moving next door on to build and operate the Loon and Marsh Ridge golf clubs. Then it was on to the Upper Peninsula where he designed and built the Wild Bluff Golf Club in Brimley. While serving as general manager there he was instrumental in creating a women’s PGA event, the Bay Mills Open. As tournament director he engineered a huge marketing coup at the time when he brought in teenage star, Michelle Wie, to participate in one of her first major tournaments. The event was covered live on the Golf Channel, a first for any event in the UP. Husby believes his broad knowledge of the resort business in Northern Michigan gives him an edge over his predecessor’s at LockenHeath. “We are smart enough to know that my regional connections can get us some exposure,” he said. “We have a very good project. It’s a good golf course and a great facility. Now we just have to sell it to the public.” Out-of-state developers tried persistently and failed to make LockenHeath into an Arizona-styled residential golf community but they succeeded only in driving the property into foreclosure. The 7,239-yard golf course, set on a rolling, hilly site, overlooks the east arm of Grand Traverse Bay and was designed by Florida architect Steve Smyers. It was recognized as one of the top 10 new courses in the country when it opened in 2001. But the Arizona-based developers and a succession of managers were never able to get a handle on the local real estate market and LockenHeath became a casualty when the economy crashed. Homeowners, who bought into the dream of living in an exclusive residential golf enclave on one of the most spectacular bays on the Great Lakes, were left holding the bag when the course closed two years ago. Even before his group officially took over the ownership, last fall Husby brought back the former course superintendent, Joe Ettawagiac, and a work crew to begin restorations on the course and properly prepare it for the winter. He said if the weather cooperates the course should be back to its former glory this spring. In a nod to wooing back former customers the peak season weekend greens fee will be $80 this season.

Pinehurst No. 2 used to be one of those places, back in the 1920s through the late 1950s. But it hasn’t been for a while. The village center always has been enchanting, but the course itself lacked a certain appeal. It wasn’t scenic. The holes looked too similar. The fairway bunkers hardly were a factor. And the demanding greens were more hard work than charming. It was an exacting test, but not an aesthetic joy. That’s all changed now. Donald Ross’ most famous design from a century ago has been utterly transformed through a restoration by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw that is as radical and path-breaking as any in the history of golf-course architecture. The result is stunning. Pinehurst No. 2 is strategically more compelling than ever – and a whole lot more fun, too. Golf here used to be about the greens and surrounds. Now it’s about every shot.
