TRIAD GOLF TODAY â&#x20AC;¢ FALL 2019
Area Insider – by David Droschak
ow crazy is this? The Wake Forest men’s and women’s golf teams each won their first tournament of the fall season, with the No. 5 players claiming team medalist honors. That certainly bodes well for the depth of each squad heading into the 2020 spring season as each were ranked No. 1 in the nation in late September. On the men’s side, four of Wake Forest’s golfers finished in the top 10 at the Rod Myers Invitational in Durham in mid September with Parker Gillam celebrating his 21st birthday by carding a final round 70 to finish in fourth place at 8-under. Team No. 1 player Eric Bae shot a final-round 71 to finish tied for fifth at 6-under. The Demon Deacons shot 7-under during the final round at the Duke University Golf Club to turn a six-stroke deficit at the start of the round into a three-stroke victory. “We received great contribution from everyone,” said coach Jerry Haas. “It says something when your worst finisher is tied for 21st. We saw a lot of good things from a very young team.” Gillam is a junior from Cary, while Bae is one of just two seniors on the roster. Meanwhile, on the women’s side, heralded freshman Rachel Kuehn made quite a splash in her collegiate debut at the ANNIKA Intercollegiate in Minnesota during the same week of the men’s victory. The former prep All-American Kuehn from Asheville became the first player in program history to win an individual title in her first college tournament. She shot a final round 69 to finish at 13-under and post a five-shot win in an event that featured 12 returning All-Americans from 2019.
Her 13-under total is a Wake Forest freshman record and the third-best 54-hole total in school history, trailing only the school-record 15-under score that Jennifer Kupcho shot twice. Kuehn’s win makes her the 19th all-time Demon Deacon to win an individual title. She and
her mother, All-American and Wake Forest Hall of Famer Brenda Corrie Kuehn, become the first Wake Forest mother-daughter duo to each have earned medalist honors at a collegiate event. “This victory was an unbelievable finish with such a strong field,” said coach Kim Lewellen. “It’s an incredible feeling as a coach to know that every one of your players is capable of winning an individual title, and they can come together as a unit to win as a team. This is a special group.” The Wake Forest women are coming off an NCAA runner-up finish, while the men’s team was ranked in the top 5 last season.

One Unique Critter Greensboro’s Crittenden captures World Long Drive Championship
By BRAD KING
eff Crittenden was in a tight spot. The Long Drive champion known as “Critter” to friends and fans was down to his last two attempts in the nationally televised finals of the World Long Drive Championship Masters Division in Oklahoma in early September. He was battling defending world champion Eddie Fernandes — and the two combatants were … well familiar with one another. In July, Fernandes beat Crittenden at the ROC City Rumble Masters Division Championship in Rochester, N.Y. 6
TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2019
In 2017, Crittenden knocked Fernandes out during the World Championship semifinals and went on to earn his first world title. This encounter had the unmistakable feel of a rubber match. Back in his adopted hometown of Greensboro, Crittenden’s personal fitness trainer and Precision Golf School colleague Ted Bonham followed the drama on The Golf Channel. Midway through the final round, Bonham saw a look come across his friend’s face. “I saw something in his eyes,” Bonham said. “He had this look on his face that he was definitely, definitely going to hit a good one. He had found something or he
had felt something.” Despite the immense pressure, Crittenden approached his second-to-last drive of the tournament with confidence. “I hit my third ball in the grid, but I hit it poorly and I was only 10 yards behind (Fernandes),” he said. “I knew I didn’t have to swing hard, I just had to square the club. I started making some adjustments on the fly and finally squared one up on my seventh ball.” Crittenden’s deciding bomb blew 10 yards past Fernandes’s best effort on the fly, and ended up 388 yards in the twilight. “As soon as I hit it, I knew I won,” Crittenden said. “I actually thought it was going to go further than it did.”
For Crittenden, 48, the title validated his world Masters championship from two years earlier. “One thing people have always told me, ‘If you win one, you could get lucky, you could get hot. If you win two, it’s probably not luck,’” he said. “So, I feel a lot better about this second win than I did the first. It solidified that the first one wasn’t a fluke.” Crittenden, the head instructor at Precision Golf School, once hit a tournament drive 491 yards. In a mile-high competition in Colorado several years ago he cracked one 465 yards — but lost by a single foot. His club builder, Precision Continued on page 7 www.triadgolf.com
One Unique Critter from page 6 Golf’s Kevin McCallister, currently has him competing with a MOI driver with a 6.5degree loft, and a House of Forged XX-flex shaft. Despite all his successes, even Crittenden’s most disappointing moment eventually turned “Critter” into one of the sport’s household names. The 2014 World Long Drive Championship was contested for the first and only time as a $250,000, winner-takeall competition. Crittenden won his quarterfinal match by one yard, and then upset former world champ Joe Miller in the semifinals, again by one yard. In the championship match, Crittenden faced a relative no-name in the sport, a former minor league baseball player named Jeff Flagg. After Crittenden’s final attempt, officials had to go out on the grid to handmeasure the two drives, while the two competitors waited nervously and numbly on the tee. Finally, the call came in: Crittenden, 365 yards 7 inches; Flagg, 365 yards 20 inches. Flagg had clipped Crittenden by 13 inches to take home the whole enchilada. But “Critter” became the Cinderella story of the event, earning himself a legion of new fans with his gritty showing in the final, which was televised live by Golf Channel. With a quick laugh and an infectious personality that belies his imposing, 6-foot-2, 225-pound frame, Crittenden has always been able to make light of even his most stinging defeats. “He’s a unique individual,” Bonham said. “Jeff is always, always a happy-golucky guy. He’s always in a good mood. You never see him upset. He doesn’t let too many things get to him. He’s a pretty big guy, pretty well-built guy. He’s got a lot of power. But he really is just a big teddy bear.” Nevertheless, Bonham said Crittenden is one of the hardest workers he knows. “When he latches on to something he really wants to do, he puts in all his effort,” Bonham said. “We’ll train for an hour and I will kill him. But later that afternoon or that evening, he’ll go back to the gym and do some workouts that are different than what we did that day. “He’s very dedicated to the sport and to being really good at his craft. His attitude is unbelievable and his work ethic is second to none.” Bonham has trained Champions Tour www.triadgolf.com
winner and Browns Summit resident Mike Goodes. “Mike’s got that same gear in him,” Bonham said. “They both train very, very hard.” With strength being one of the most important components of long-drive competition, most of Crittenden’s gym workouts entail explosive movements such as throwing weighted balls, pushing sleds, doing jumps and sprints — anything that is fast-twitch oriented — along with his share of weight training. “After I get through with Ted, I’m usually on the floor for about an hour,” Crittenden said. Crittenden grew up outside of Philadelphia in West Chester, Pa., the youngest of seven children. His father was a retired naval fighter pilot. “We were not a golfing family,” Crittenden said. “Golf wasn’t available, so I played baseball. Baseball was kind of mandatory.” Not surprisingly, he was a powerslugging third baseman. “I could hit,” he admits. “That was my bread and butter. If I didn’t lead the league in home runs, it was unusual. And I usually competed for average, too.” He continued his baseball career through college at a pair of Division II schools in eastern Pennsylvania. In his early 20s, Crittenden earned tryouts with the Philadelphia Phillies and the Kansas City Royals. “They told me, ‘Come on down, maybe you can clean out the dugout when we leave,”’ he says with a laugh. “Even at 175 pounds, I couldn’t run fast. My arm was OK. My fielding was OK. But I could hit,” said Crittenden, who says he started playing baseball again about four years ago in an over-35 league. “Scouts didn’t want anything to do with guys who can just hit. They
wanted the runners, the guys with the big arms. They teach you how to hit.” Crittenden said that while golf and baseball swings are similar in nature, ironically there are more former pitchers who perform well in the long-drive competitions. “Because of the mechanics and the arm length and how far that elbow can move back, and the flexibility,” he said. Crittenden first picked up golf in college, while working at Wyncote Golf Club in Oxford, Pa. After deciding to put baseball in the rearview mirror, he was offered a full-time job by the club. “I took the job and I’ve been golfing ever since,” he said. “When I worked at the golf course, I played every day and yeah, I was longer than everyone else,” he said. “My length could get me by some of the flaws in my game. I could hit driver pretty straight back then.” Crittenden said he “made a little money” in the Philly section before he moved to Orlando to compete full time on several of the mini-tours. After several years he returned to Philadelphia to help take care of his ailing mother. “I didn’t pick up long drive until I was 34 years old and (former Wyncote GC colleague Robert Passarelli) made me do it,” Crittenden said. “He told me, ‘Jeff, you have to do long drive. You’re the longest person I’ve ever seen hit a golf ball. Here’s an 8-degree Callaway head, the 454 head, get a shaft and go do it.’ “I hemmed and hawed about it,” he said. “But I finally got a shaft and went and did it.” In his first local competition, in Fayetteville, Crittenden ripped his first drive 378 yards and won the competition. “I’m like, ‘I am really good at this,’” he said. “I went to regional that
was about a month later, and everyone hit it that far. I didn’t do very well. It took me about a year and a half to figure it out.” Not long after, at the Metter Invitational in Georgia, Crittenden lost in the finals by 2 feet. “Then I said, ‘This isn’t long drive. I have to flite the ball. I have to use all the stuff I’ve learned playing golf to do this. I don’t have to go out and swing like a wild man. I just have to swing hard and flite it the way I need to for the grid. “And I started making check after check after check. I couldn’t believe it.” That same year, Crittenden won the Cabo Classic in Mexico — the largest international event at the time — netting himself a $20,000 payday. “I went down for a vacation and ended up winning it,” he said. Along the way, he has worked as an instructor for ESPN, Golf Digest, Hank Haney, Jim Flick and others. “I got lucky, I really got lucky,” he said. “For a while I was trying to get out of the business but the phone would ring with more work.” Crittenden competes in about a dozen long-drive events annually. His success has brought him not only plenty of fame in the sport, but also an active side gig: Crittenden said he will appear at about 60 corporate and charity events this year, including more than a dozen in September alone that he says will gross more than $100,000 for charities. “I usually do a 40-minute show to start, and then go sit on a tee and have fun with people. I sit out there and make money with each group,” he said. “All the charities are great organizations and they use the money wisely, putting it back into the community. This isn’t work. It’s fun.” Crittenden continues to compete in the long-drive Open division and remains ranked in the world Top 40. But he is concentrating more now on the Masters events. “These new kids are so fast, so good,” he said. Bonham said Crittenden’s driver isn’t the only impressive club in his bag. “I would say his short game is better than his long drives,” Bonham said. “He can get it up-and-down from anywhere.” Propelled by his September world championship, Crittenden isn’t ready to ride off into the sunset just yet. He recently signed a two-year renewal with Volvik golf balls, one of his sponsors since 2017. “That’ll put me into my early 50s,” he said. “That gives me a few more years to compete in the Masters before the new guys come in. “I think I can still show them a thing or two.” TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2019

Best bargain in North Carolina? Asheboro Municipal a Ross original By DAVID DROSCHAK
Photos by David Droschak
TRIAD GOLF TODAY â&#x20AC;¢ FALL 2019
ho says golf is too expensive? For just one Alexander Hamilton you can tee it up all day at Asheboro Municipal Golf Course. In case you’re not up on your currency, that’s $10 bucks. And if you’re a local, it costs only $8. That price point has remained in place for the last five years. And there is no per se “weekend rate.” So much for inflation. Before you begin to snicker and try to associate the low green fee with course conditions or layout, don’t go down that road with this Donald Ross original opened in 1935. It has a 4.6-star rating on Google, and while it looks docile at first glance, this 9-hole course will test your game better than most country clubs. “Don’t miss a green here or you better have a great short game,” said head professional Andy Nelson. Nelson found his way here 22 years ago and his pleasant demeanor is a large part of old-time feel you experience after you walk up the backporch steps to a small pro shop that was erected close to 80 years ago. A large chunk of Nelson’s play comes from seniors, who have gatherings on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. “Seeing the same guys every day is fun for me,” Nelson said. ”I can set my watch by some of them. I know if I get here at 7 a.m. tomorrow some of them will already have the pull carts out and we’ll sit down on the porch and have a cup of coffee. I see them more than their wives probably. “Sure, there are arguments every once in a while but we haven’t had any fights lately so we’re all good,” adding a laughing Nelson. www.triadgolf.com
“There is a good group of guys and then you have your regulars. And I have a lot of people stop in from Ohio on their way down to Myrtle Beach and say they just want to get out of the car a little bit and play nine holes. I tell them to ‘come on.”’ Most around don’t use a GPS to find the place, but landmarks like the old days – the course officially run by the City of Asheboro Cultural & Recreation Services is across Highway 64 from the high school and behind the BoJangles. It sits on just 45 acres with 15 sand traps and a lake on the 8th hole that used to be just a stream but was turned into a larger body of water in the early 1990s. The course was actually built for Ross by the WPA, a New Deal
agency created by President Roosevelt that employed millions of job seekers. Almost every community in the United States had a new park, bridge, or school that was constructed by the federal agency. In Asheboro’s case, it was a Ross golf course that still remains today. With no heavy machinery, little dirt was moved so the course hugs the natural terrain of the area, which consists of gently rolling hills and towering pines. Golfers often play a different set of tees for each nine with a “championship” length of 6,148 yards and a respectable slope rating of 133. The course went for years without any association to Ross, regarded as one of the best architects ever and the creator of iconic and famed Pinehurst No. 2. That all changed about a decade ago, Nelson said, when a maintenance supervisor stumbled upon the plans at city hall. “It made a big difference when the Donald Ross Society finally recognized us as a Donald Ross course,” Nelson said, pointing out the plans from the original drawings hanging on the wall in the clubhouse. Nelson says Asheboro Municipal logs about 30,000 rounds a year, and remains a popular golf destination. There is no logo, and no driving range. There is about 150 yards of space near holes 8 and 9 where some can warm up if needed. Bring your own balls, though, since you’ll have to
snag your own practice shots. “Heck, 85 percent to 100 percent just come out and walk on and just play,” Nelson says. “About four or five of our regulars every once in a while warm up but the rest of them just get out there and hack away, roll a few balls on the green and go. “What I like is I can sit here in the pro shop and see the 4th green, and it’s what, about 500 yards away?” he added. “I know what’s going on just about everywhere on the golf course.” Most walks between green and tee is 20 yards. On the day I visited the course, a twosome had heard about the old course and driven from Salisbury to tackle it. “This is better than I expected,” one of the golfers said. “It’s so challenging and fun.” And some regulars rocked away in a chair on the back porch. “It’s easy to play and easy to walk. I don’t go anywhere else anymore,” said 67-year-old Glenn Church, who has been playing here for 40 years. “Distance is not the issue; the defense of this course is the greens,” added 63-year-old Terje Karlsen. “They are so small and tricky. Overall it’s a great muni course.” It cost 50 cents to play when the course first opened. And with likely the best deal in golf in the Tar Heel state, things haven’t changed much in 80 years here, have they? TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2019

Orchestrating Success Mike Parah lands new gig at Deep Springs By DAVID DROSCHAK
y all accounts, Mike Parah had a bright future in music as a trombone major and piano minor at the Crane School of Music in upstate New York. He even performed at the 1980 Winter Olympics, for the Reagans at the White House and traveled an hour or so to Canada on a regular basis to play in the Gentleman of Swing band. Parah was even offered a scholarship to Arizona State to continue his studies in music and earn a master’s degree. He turned it down. Why? Well, Parah had begun playing golf with the local professors at the time and soon recognized his music career was getting in the way of his love for the game. “I had some really neat gigs, but I realized everything was at night so I never got to see the day and I never got to play golf,” Parah said. “I said to myself, ‘Well, this isn’t going to work.’” Also tired of the cold weather, Parah threw together a self-admitted rudimentary resume and applied for a job at Carolina Shores along the southern coast of North Carolina. “I sent my terrible little resume to them, packed up my car and headed South,” Parah said. “I said to myself, ‘If I don’t get this job I am going to stay and figure something out.”’ Parah didn’t have to go to Plan B. He was hired in January 1984, beginning a more than three-decade golf adventure that has spanned nearly every facet of the business. “I was making $150 a week and I was excited to death, just loving every minute of it,” he said of working in Calabash. “I just wanted to become a golf professional and improve my game.” Parah rose to the level of head professional during his 3 ½ years at Carolina Shores, and then got involved in new golf projects. “I did eight new golf course projects and got them open, including Greensboro National and Salem Glen in this area,” he said. “And then I got involved in rebuilding courses, projects that needed help.” During that time Parah even played some on the Nike Tour and went back to school for agronomy. “That really helped me in the business of rebuilding courses,” Parah said of his turf work. “I went from the paper side of it, to the membership side of it, to playing, to seven golf course rebuilds throughout the Carolinas and Virginia. It was quite a ride.” After one year at Foxfire Resort in the North Carolina Sandshills, Parah has now settled in as the new general manager and director of golf at Deep Springs Golf & Country Club, a wonderful Ellis Maples design in Stoneville. Parah’s connection with Deep Springs came via an old friend – Roger Watson of the Carolinas Golf Group, the managing partner of the firm that runs Deep Springs. Continued on page 15

The two had lost contact with each other over the last 15 years, but Parah called Watson and the two met for lunch in Greensboro. Watson said he had a few opportunities, one of which was at Deep Springs. “I was very interested in Deep Springs because I had played the golf course and I loved it,” Parah said. “Roger and I played in the North Carolina Open together probably 25 years ago, and I was 1-over and he said to me: ‘You are one of the best ball strikers I have ever seen and probably one of the worst putters I have ever seen.’ He then took me to the putting green and spent an hour with me after our first round. That’s where our friendship grew.” Parah is aiming to improve the clubhouse operation at Deep Springs, while “modernizing” items such as the website and online tee booking. The club has 300 members, with a goal of 400. “Sure, there are challenges with our rural location but there are so many positives,” Parah said. “I will take these greens over anyplace; they are as good as I’ve ever played. The Ellis Maples golf course is phenomenal. I live in Greensboro and it is only 25 minutes to here, it’s all highway now. Before there was a two-lane road so it was a challenge for people to get here. We’re picking up golfers from Greensboro, along with Martinsville, Va., Danville, Va., plus the local community here.” Watson, for one, is glad to see his buddy on a regular basis. “We are excited to bring Mike back to lead Deep Springs, which has undergone renovations over the past few years,” Watson said. “Mike himself was surprised how well conditioned the golf course has become under the leadership of Dean Farlow, our course superintendent. Mike brings more than 25 years of experience in membership services, membership event planning, and teaching golf at all levels and hosting all types of golf events. Deep Springs is fortunate to have Mike’s leadership.” Parah, now 58, says Deep Springs could be his last stop. He then chuckled. “This is it, but you never know with me,” he said. “I feel that the Greensboro area is home; my children grew up in Greensboro. I have kind of come full circle in coming back here. Everywhere I go here I know people. I feel like this is home. I’m so glad to be here.”
It’s time to test your mettle on this rugged masterpiece.

Age is just a number for 100-year-old Tise
By BRAD KING
hooting one’s age or lower on the golf course ranks among the most coveted and enviable goals in all of sports. The feat means two important things -- that one has lived a relatively long life and that they’re still ablebodied, with enough athleticism left in the tank to skillfully navigate their way around 18 holes. Winston-Salem’s Lindsay Tise shoots his age pretty much every time he tees it up. Such success says as much about his golf game, as it does his age — 100 years old. Tise is living proof that age is just a number. “I don’t know when I’ve shot more than 100,” said Tise, who has been winning local, state and national awards for much of the past decade. This summer, Tise captured his third-consecutive gold medal for golf at the National Senior Games, in the 100-and-over category of the tournament in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Games are an Olympiad of sorts held every year. Hundreds of athletes compete at the regional and national levels in more than a dozen sports including track, basketball, bowling — and golf. Competitions are held in five-year age brackets from 50 years old to 100-plus. This year, Tise was one of five centenarians participating, including his opponent on the links in the super senior category for the third consecutive time, Raymond Lokers from Michigan. Both golfers were joined by a companion to assist with club selection, evaluate the grade at each hole and maneuver the course. Tise was escorted by his son, Tim, who lives outside Atlanta. Following a trio of nine-hole rounds over three days at the Santa Ana Golf Club in Albuquerque, 18

Tise topped Lokers once again, this time by 29 strokes. “Those were some beautiful golf courses out there, surrounded by mountains and desert,” he said. “They were fantastic.” His passion for golf is linked to the love of Tise’s life. His wife of 71 years, Frances, died in September 2013 and his oldest son, Lindsay A. Tise Jr., passed away about one year later.
“It was just terrible for me,” Tise said. “I just keep busy, and (golf) is one of the things that helps me through life.” Tise grew up just down the street from Forsyth Country Club, which was founded in 1913. “I was a kid when Forsyth was built,” he said. “I caddied before I was hardly able to carry a bag.” He became friends with an assistant club pro who mentored him in the finer
points of the game after the members had finished their rounds. While raising his family, Tise worked as an electronics technician for the Defense Department and later as a manager with BocockStroud Co., a now-defunct sporting goods company. More recently he has dabbled in real estate. He still owns and manages six houses. Continued on page 27 www.triadgolf.com

Jefferson Landing’s new design a worthy fall escape By DAVID DROSCHAK

TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2019
ucked into the northwest corner of North Carolina, in the heart or Christmas tree country, bordering the rafting and canoeing experiences of the New River and just a 10-minute drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, sits one of the state’s best golfing layouts. In case you haven’t been to Jefferson Landing Club in the past few years, or ever at all, there’s no better time than this fall to escape for a day or weekend to Jefferson, N.C., as ownership has invested in an architectural redesign by Greensboro’s Kris Spence and significant upgrades to its 17-room lodge. Spence is noted for his work on Donald Ross courses across North Carolina and the Southeast, but agreed to tackle this Larry Nelson design after several meetings with Mark and Eddie Vannoy, the owners and partners of Vannoy Construction whose family developed this property in the early 1990s. “The golf course was originally built in the modern context of a depressed fairway with rolling mounds,” Spence said. “They moved a lot of dirt building it and that’s not natural of a 1920s design, so it was not necessarily in my wheelhouse to work with a property like that. But after meeting with the Vannoys I enjoyed sitting down with them and agreed to tackle the project.” Spence, who has worked on such esteemed courses as the Country Club of North Carolina (Dogwood Course) and Sedgefield Country Club, has added his touches to the Jefferson Landing course over the last 2-3 years. “I like the way it turned out,” Spence said. “I got just enough of my old-school, traditional architecture in there. We greatly enhanced the golf course to where the greens are much more defined and there is a little more thought process now when golfers play the course, playing in-andaround the bunkers and setting up angles.” Spence is being modest. Jefferson Landing thought enough of his work to add his name to the scorecard alongside Nelson’s as a 2018 redesign and in my opinion has elevated the new layout into one of the must-play mountain experiences and a top 25 course in North Carolina. “The course was built almost three decades ago and it was already a good golf course but Kris made it even better,” said longtime director of golf Dean Spainhour. And the Vannoys added their own touch, too. The 18th hole, which featured a lake near the tee, now has a creek guarding the left side of the fairway and finishes with a waterfall by the green, reminiscent of Quail Hollow’s finishing hole in Charlotte.
A morning dew scene with the newly constructed creek on the 18th hole at Jefferson Landing Club. “Mark and Eddie like to travel and play at some of the better golf courses so they would go and play and come back with various ideas that they would implement themselves,” Spence said. “That creek and waterfall was one of them.” The brothers also had another interesting idea to run by Spence. They wanted the relatively lackluster par-3 14th hole to be given some character. “Mark had an interest in doing these sod-wall bunkers,” Spence said. “And Eddie had talked to me about wanting the 14th hole to be very memorable. He said, ‘I want people to leave here and have this hole in their minds.’ I told them that sure we can do that but they are going to be awful deep and very dramatic, and frankly they are going to be difficult to get out of. They are basically going to be the (St. Andrews) Road Hole bunkers. He said, ‘Let’s go for it.’” “Those are really cool,” Spainhour said of the three deep bunkers. “Everybody now tries to hit enough club to get over them, but if you do hit it into them you could be in there for a few days.” Spence also added sod-wall bunkers on the 7th and 12th holes as part of his overall redesign of the bunkers, which included the Better Billy Bunker system and all new sand. The back nine fairways were also sodded with bent grass and all the tee boxes were leveled and expanded. “We brought in bent grass from New Jersey and we took the bunkering and put it into a little more of a strategic positioning, which really tried to accent the angles of the golf course, opened up some of the approaches to give a lot more opportunity for golfers to bounce a ball into the green – things you see on the older golf courses.
It is still the Larry Nelson routing and his greens.” Extensive tree removal was also accomplished to “peel back” fairway sight lines, and wispy native grass areas were created to “give the course more of a meadow look because it does sit in this nice big bowl and you see these surrounding pastures and meadows,” Spence said. “We lowered the tees, tapering the slopes out and put a bigger top on because they were undersized, and rebuilding the bunkers required us working around the greens and taking out some of the more modern features of the golf course, creating some chipping swales and resetting the bunkers up tight to the greens,” added Spence. Water comes into play on 16 of the 18 holes as Naked Creek, with large boulders guarding its banks, serpentines its way throughout the course. Spence also added a four-hole short course that is situated near the clubhouse
and newly renovated lodge. There are future plans to cross the road in the next few years and create five more holes to give Jefferson Landing its own short course, Spainhour said. “If somebody has some energy left and had a few drinks they can step outside the clubhouse and play the short game and settle a bet; it’s sort of a calming gathering type of area. They have made some really nice improvements here,” Spence said. The fall rate, weekdays or weekends, is $89 per person. “It’s not a true mountain course to where it is up-and-down all the time,” Spainhour said. “It is built in a little valley. One of the good things about this course is you don’t have any blind shots and most shots play either level or downhill. Seniors and older people can get around here pretty good.” “I’ve been to a lot of places, but this is one of the most beautiful areas I’ve ever been to,” added Spence.

performance, let’s change the PGA Tour voting from Player of the Year to Mister Congeniality. I suspect neither of these guys would come out on top of that vote. Considering the amount of money going into player pockets, I would be more impressed with who gets the prize for being the most generous with both their time and money in support of growing the game. Further, if we are going to reflect on the golf world’s happenings in the recent past, let’s give a cheer to the fabulous U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst – best attendance with great competition. And the Solheim Cup may not have ended the way the colonist would prefer, but there is no doubt that the women of the LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour play top-notch golf. It was a tense, competitive event filled with drama and skill. Since you made me think about all this stuff, I poked around and found that Scott McCarren is leading as the PGA Champions Tour player of the year. No controversy here, he leads in wins, money and scoring average. Maybe it’s the hemp oil. Something to check out. I could use some help with my achy joints.

Double eagle, club championship all in one memorable day
By STEVE WILLIAMS
double eagle was icing on the cake at Pudding Ridge for John Landen. The Clemmons golfer held a three-shot advantage in the Pudding Ridge Golf Club championship after posting a first-round 69 on Sept. 7 and he added to it by going out in a 2-under-par 34 the following day. Any hopes of anybody catching Landen on the back nine ended on the par-5 13th hole. That’s where the double eagle landed for Landen as he ripped a drive on the 450-yard hole and then holed an 8-iron shot from 165 yards. A lone bogey three holes later was of no consequence as Landen ended with 67 and a nine-shot margin over defending champion Michael Spillman. “I didn’t know what my actual lead was before that shot but that was a pretty nice gift,” Landen said of his first-ever double eagle. The 13th hole was a par-4 until this summer when the tees were moved back. That allowed the 11th hole to switch from a bottleneck-causing par-5 into a par-4. “I don’t ever remember anybody hol-

ing out on No. 13,” said Pudding Ridge professional Dan Ward. And that included when it was playing as a par-4. That made Landen’s shot even more memorable.

Sharp new coach from page 24 Age is just a number from page 18 Western Carolina a memorable one. Playing in the Judaculla Cup at Waynesville Golf Resort, she birdied the first playoff hole to get past teammate Bailee Twiford and Appalachian State’s Abby Bolt. All three had ended 36 holes at even-par 144. Western Carolina won the threeteam, 22-player tournament by two over Appalachian. Isaacson is in her first year at WCU after transferring from UNC Wilmington.
High Point opens strong
Sparked by a final-round 2-underpar 70 by Olivia John, a sophomore from Summerfield, High Point opened the fall campaign with a victory in the Golfweek Program Challenge at True Blue Golf Club in Pawleys Island, S.C. The Panthers’ 872 total set a school record for a 54-hole tournament and the final round 286 tied the school mark for one round. High Point won the 15-team event by four shots. The 70 was John’s career best round and was a huge turnaround after opening with 75-85. www.triadgolf.com
“I’ve had three long careers,” he said. “I have to stay busy. If I didn’t, I’d go crazy.” Every Thursday -- weather permitting -- Tise and a group of friends from his church, Fairview Moravian, plays a weekly round of golf at venues ranging from the Triad to the mountains. Pilot Knob Park is, “one of the best,” according to Tise, who also singled out Oak Hollow, Salem Glen, Oak Valley, Tanglewood and Pudding Ridge as among his favorites. “There’s a lot of them,” Tise said. “We play everywhere within about a 50-mile range, really. All of them are real nice courses.” During the summer, the group drives about an hour to play golf at Skyland Lakes Golf Club just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. “It’s usually about 10 degrees cooler up there than it is in WinstonSalem,” Tise said. “It’s worth the (green) fees just to go around and

see the scenery. It’s so pretty just going around.” Tise refuses to act his age. Not only does he live at home and take care of himself, he still drives his car — navigating his way down to Atlanta several times a year to visit his five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Recently, when Tise went to the DMV to get his license renewed, the woman behind the desk was amazed. “She said, ‘You know, you’re 100 years old and you don’t have any restrictions. You don’t wear glasses and you don’t have any hearing problems. You’re good for five more years. When you come back in five years, I want to be here to give you your driving test.’” Three times a week almost without fail, for two hours early in the morning, Tise works out in the Healthy Exercise and Lifestyle Programs (HELPS) — exercise

classes for older adults offered through the Wake Forest University Clinical Research Center. He makes the rounds on all the machines, lifting weights and stretching, as part of a program that is medically supervised by graduate students. Tise has become an inspiration for those around him. “Everybody working out here says the same thing: We all want to be like Lindsay,” said WinstonSalem’s Tom Brandon, who works out with Tise. “He lives with this attitude of gratitude,” said Barbara Lancaster, 80. “He thinks he’s the luckiest person that ever lived, so positive all the time.” Tise had a pacemaker inserted about a year ago. He said he took a few weeks off from golf and “just putted around a little bit,” before rejoining his weekly game. “My goal in life now is to stay out of the hospital,” he said with a laugh.
