Area Insider – by David Droschak

Lakeshore’s swan song

fficially located within the Durham city limits, Lakeshore has always been known as the golf course of Research Triangle Park. But there was really nothing high-tech about the public layout built from scratch in the early 1960s by Marvin Utley, his father and grandfather. The 18-hole course measured just 5,719 yards from the tips, had a handful of bunkers and no hole measured more than 500 yards. You could walk 18 on the weekdays with a push cart while munching on a pack of nabs for $25. It was the classic muni. Despite operating on a limited budget over the years, Lakeshore was still able to attract the “big boys” of business in the area like SAS, IBM, Nortel and Glaxo with its corporate nine-hole golf leagues, which still operated up until last year. “That corporate business was A flock of birds sit on one of Lakeshore’s idle driving range targets.

Goodbye Jesse

North Carolina golfing world loses a coaching legend

F

By BRAD KING

ittingly in many ways, legendary Wake Forest University golf coach Jesse Haddock passed away during the week of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Though he never coached Palmer during his historic, three-decade stint at Wake Forest, the program Haddock inherited in 1960 always benefitted from The King’s cachet. Shortly after assuming control of the Demon Deacon golf team, Haddock turned to Palmer, a former Wake Forest golfer who was by then making a worldwide name for himself on the PGA Tour, and asked him to assist the sagging program by funding a scholarship. “Arnold gave us $500,” Haddock said, “and we were on our way.” Palmer’s scholarship helped pave the way for Haddock to recruit

TRIANGLE GOLF TODAY • LATE SPRING 2018

many of the 63 golfers who would achieve All-American status during his recordsetting 32 years at the helm of the Atlantic Coast Conference golfing dynasty. From 1960 until he retired in 1992, Haddock’s team captured three national championships (1974, 1975 and 1986) and finished runner-up another three times. They also won 15 ACC titles, including an amazing run of 10 straight from 1967-76. Haddock was named national coach of the year three times. “We have the best school in the South,” Haddock would tell recruits and he meant every word. He truly bled the black and gold. “Wake Forest College was a perfect place for him for there were dozens of young men just like him, who came with limited means and unlimited dreams,” said Bill Joyner, a retired Wake Forest Senior VP and one of Haddock’s closest friends. “None were more hopeful than Jesse.” Haddock celebrated his 91st birthday in January, yet his health was declining and he was admitted into hospice soon thereafter. He died peacefully the morning of March 14, his wife of 68 years, Kay, and one of their daughters, Dottie Kay Hill, by his side.

Five days following his passing, Haddock was honored at Wait Chapel on the Wake Forest campus with a service attended not only by many of his former players — his “boys” as Haddock lovingly called them — but many golfers who were influenced by his legacy, as well as other former Wake Forest athletes and employees.  A day forecasted as rainy and cold appropriately turned out sunny and pleasant: a perfect afternoon for golf. The altar flowers were black and gold, while the magnolia leaves were handpicked from the old campus in the town of Wake Forest. Nine former players — John Morrow, Jack Lewis, Jay Sigel, Jerry Haas, Logan Jackson, Joe Inman, Billy Andrade, Gary Hallberg and Scott Hoch — served as pallbearers, while all of Haddock’s former players were recognized as honorary pallbearers. Joyner made opening comments followed by speeches from four other former players: Curtis Strange, John Buczek, Mike Brown and Lanny Wadkins. “I know Coach is up there with Arnold,” said Buczek, one of Haddock’s first great players and later a legendary PGA professional. “Arnold, with that great smile of his, is greeting Jesse and saying: ‘Job well done.’” Like Palmer, Haddock was a man of the people. “We would go to tournaments,” Wadkins said. “Every player at every other school would come up and say ‘hi’ to Coach. It was amazing how many other players at other schools respected and loved Jesse Haddock. When you were with Coach, you knew you were with somebody special. He was definitely one of a kind.” “He had an unbelievable talent for remembering people’s names,” Jackson said. “He remembered everybody’s name and I’m not talking about just his golfers. If he ever met you, he would know who you were next time he saw you and ask you how your wife was doing by name. I’ve never known anybody quite like that.” “Coach gave me my greatest gift … a chance,” said Strange, his voice cracking. “My dad had been gone four years when I showed up at Wake, so personally Coach was my father figure and mentor for my three years here in Winston. I respected him so much and hung on to every word.” Unlike Palmer, Haddock was a mediocre golfer at best. He didn’t take up the

game until the year before he took over the golf program. “He didn’t know much about the swing,” Jay Haas said. “But he knew what made people tick.” “His strength was he was a really, really good mental coach,” Jackson said. “He was sharp enough that he would watch a player all the time and he would know what he was doing when he played well, so when you started playing poorly he could pull you aside and tell you what you were doing different. That was a very easy way to get back on track.” “Coach Haddock was a true innovator in sports psychology,” said current Demon Deacon golf coach Jerry Haas, another of Haddock’s former players. “He was a master at handling players and knowing all the right buttons to push. He was strong and tenacious and he expected that from his players.” “He got them to be great when it counted,” added former N.C. State coach Richard Sykes. Haddock famously hated long hair and facial hair. “We’re going to look better, act better and play better than our competition,” he told his players. One year, a highly recruited freshman arrived on the Wake Forest campus sporting an impressive moustache. Haddock offered to show the newcomer and his teammates the Wake Forest “Wall of Fame” featuring framed photos of some of the program’s best players: Palmer, Billy Joe Patton, Sigel, Jack Lewis, Wadkins and others.

Continued on page 7 www.trianglegolf.com


Haddock from page 6 After he got through a dozen players, Haddock asked, “Anybody seen a moustache yet?” “Nobody said a word,” Jackson recalled. “But the next day when the kid showed up he was the cleanest shaven guy you’ve ever seen in your life with a fresh haircut.” ❖❖❖ A tobacco farm boy from Pitt County who grew up in the heart of the Depression, Haddock first set foot on the old campus in the town of Wake Forest in 1944 for what proved a short visit. He was drafted shortly thereafter and spent the closing days of World War II in Germany with the Third Army. Haddock returned to Wake Forest in 1947 and never left. He took a job in the athletic department to help pay for his education, running errands for athletic director Jim Weaver and basketball coach Murray Greason, while driving around legendary Wake Forest football coach Peahead Walker. In 1952, Haddock became the first in his family to graduate from college. Business degree in hand, Haddock began to rise through the ranks of the Wake Forest athletic department. When Horace “Bones” McKinney found that coaching the Wake Forest golf team took up too much of his basketball time, he turned it over to Haddock, who was then an assistant athletic director. From that point on, Haddock would define the role of collegiate golf coach in the modern era — putting the Demon Deacons’ golf team on the national map and molding the early careers of many future greats. Twenty of Haddock’s players would go on to play on the PGA Tour and 15 on the Champions Tour. The program’s first national title came in 1974 when Strange, a 17-year-old freshman, drained a slick, downhill putt for eagle on the final hole to clinch the championship. The following year’s squad, led by Strange and Jay Haas — along with second-team All-American Bob Byman and third-team All-American David Thore www.trianglegolf.com

— may have been the greatest team in college golf history. The Demon Deacons won seven of nine tournaments that season with an average margin of victory of 27 strokes and won the NCAA title by 33 strokes, shattering the previous record of 19 and causing tournament officials to restructure the way they ran the championship. Wake Forest’s dominance in the 1970s even forced other ACC schools to upgrade their programs to avoid such embarrassment. “Coach molded us into a family,” Strange said. “Family and team always came before individual success.” “We carried ourselves and we played a lot of good golf because we were representing him and Wake Forest,” Wadkins said. “I think it was in that order. He was

always there for all of us.” Every year when April rolled around, Haddock would hold court under the old oak tree outside the Augusta National clubhouse. In 1988, Wake Forest produced nearly a quarter of the field that made the cut at the Masters. “To stand under that oak tree at Augusta National with Jesse was like standing on the porch of the Vatican with the Pope,” Joyner said. “I met Vice President Quayle and Nancy Lopez within 15 minutes of one another. And they came to meet Jesse.” In his later years at Wake Forest, the Haddocks started the Jesse Haddock Golf Camp. Young golfers came from all over the world to learn the finer points of the game from Coach Haddock and many of his players. “Beyond our Wake Forest golf team family, he touched so many young lives literally across the world,” Brown said. Haddock was known as a gifted conversationalist and he loved keeping up with his boys. Jackson once told Strange he

should call Coach because he hadn’t heard from him in a while. “Give him a call when you have a spare 45 (minutes),” Jackson said. “They were always the nicest conversations,” Strange said, “because he would just reminisce. “People have called him a mentor, teacher and father figure,” Strange said. “He was — and much more.” “He spent five decades of his life teaching, mentoring, offering words of wisdom that apply on and off the course, and instilling confidence in us,” said Buczek. “He loved his boys.” ❖❖❖ Following his retirement, Haddock and Kay briefly moved to Florida to be near their daughter, Sherry, who was suffering from cancer and her husband Jim Simons. After Sherry’s death, the Haddocks took the three Simons boys under their wings, forever changing their lives. “He was devoted to shaping the lives of the young men entrusted to his care,” said Wake Forest President Dr. Nathan Hatch.  Haddock was later enshrined in the Wake Forest University Sports Hall of Fame, the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame and the National Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame. He and Kay were longtime fixtures for Sunday brunch at the same table at Old Town Club, Winston-Salem’s bastion of southern gentility and the longtime home course of the Wake Forest golf teams. “He enjoyed coming out there and seeing

people,” Jackson said. “I think it was a good way for him to stay in touch with the past.” Despite suffering a pair of strokes five years earlier, Haddock seemed to recover fully and he drove his car up until the last year of his life. Several years ago, however, Haddock confided in Jackson that he didn’t feel comfortable going out to Old Town anymore. “I’m just getting to where I forget people’s names,” Haddock told Jackson. “Coach, on your worst day you remember more people’s names than anyone I’ve ever met on their best day,” Jackson told him. Following the service at Wait Chapel, there was a reception for family, special friends and former players at the Haddock House, a $4.5 million state-of-the-art oncampus facility that is part of the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex, dedicated in Haddock’s honor two years ago. The lobby features a large glass display case with championship trophies; wall displays honoring Haddock and Palmer, and a space to commemorate NCAA All-Americans. In the heritage room, visitors can view trophies and search via interactive touch screens to see Hall of Fame members, championship teams, and videos of Demon Deacon greats going back to the 1950s. A fitting monument for a Coach’s life well led. “Coach Haddock embodied what coaching is,” Jerry Haas said. “He was there for the players, but he let you become your own man.”

Breaking down traditional golf barriers Swing Right is Triangle’s first mobile golf club repair service

G

By DAVID DROSCHAK rowing up in Myrtle Beach three decades ago was reason enough for Martin Barrier III to get hooked on the great game of golf. More than 100 golf courses dotted the Grand Strand at the time. What also was a huge part of the golf scene along the popular South Carolina golf destination was Martin’s Golf and Tennis, seven mega superstores that every golf lover at one time or another spent hours wandering through the maze of product lines from gloves to golf shoes to grips. It was golf heaven for those of us who enjoyed the latest and greatest clubs or clothing styles. Barrier was in the unusual position of getting a behind-the-scenes look at the business. His father founded Martin’s. “I guess you can I say I definitely grew up in a golf family,” Barrier says. “Golf is all I’ve ever known and done.” That’s an understatement. At the time in his late 20s, Barrier learned just about everything there was to know about the golf business from his father. After his dad sold Martin’s in 2004, Barrier moved to Raleigh and began working for various golf entities, from Global Golf to Golfsmith to Golf Galaxy to Dick’s Sporting Goods. But life wasn’t the same. So last summer, Barrier, 45, began working on his own golf business concept, and this January launched Swing Right, a mobile golf club repair service. From a working trailer, Barrier hits the road on a daily basis to meet clients at their office or golf course

TRIANGLE GOLF TODAY • LATE SPRING 2018

who are in need of regripping, loft and lie adjustments and reshaftings. “It is such a new concept, it’s hard to grasp unless you see it,” Barrier said. “When a service like mobile detailing of cars first came out there was a learning curve for the consumer. Once people got it it sort of caught on and look at it now.” For now, Barrier’s service includes a 25-mile radius from Raleigh, hitting as far east as Clayton in Johnston County and as far west as Chapel Hill. However, Barrier does take on special requests. For example, he recently had a few clients in need of his services in Dunn and Benson. “I guess the biggest challenge has just been a learning curve and getting out the word,” he said. “My background hopefully speaks for itself, growing up all those years in the business and seeing everything in the golf business first hand. It takes the time and effort to build a business, and I really like to treat people like I would like to be treated -- with personal service and touch. I like for them to come into the trailer and carry on a conversation while I’m working on their clubs, getting to know my clients.”

The trailer includes more than 40 different brands and sizes of grips, a grinding wheel, reshafting equipment, a loft and lie adjustment machine, heat guns – “Basically everything you are going to find in a PGA Tour van. I charge clients what you would find at any brick and mortar store. There is no surcharge to come out to their home or business.” Barrier was given encouragement to follow his dream from his wife Stephanie. “She said, ‘You have all of this golf equipment you should think about doing something with a golf concept. We worked on it together,” he said. “The room for growth is to get more people thinking along the mobile concept line,” added Barrier. “When I was setting it up with the banking people they thought this could be a franchise, but that wasn’t my intent going into this whole thing. If the good Lord has me going in that direction then that’s what it will be. Remember, time is now so valuable for everything. This idea sort of solves that problem for busy golfers.” Barrier says he knows of only one other such business in the country in Las Vegas. “This is really so new of a concept,” he says. “I come to you so you can spend more time on the golf course.” For more information log on to www.swingrightgolf.com www.trianglegolf.com

Equipment Room Cary-based Stitch Golf stylishly making its industry mark

P

By BRAD KING erhaps the biggest buzz at this year’s PGA Merchandise Show was generated by Carybased Stitch Golf. Of course, to even be mentioned in the PGA Show’s “best of” category in Orlando is impressive, considering that more than 1,000 exhibiting companies and brands display their wares to 40,000-plus industry professionals from some 90 countries on the Orange County Convention Center’s interactive floor. A golf accessory company with an original focus on stylish leather and knit head covers, along with accessories under the “Dress Your Game” hash tag, Stitch Golf arrived in Florida in late January having recently expanded into handsome, lightweight and detail-laden golf bags, innovative travel bags and equally stylish apparel. The company’s name came from founder Charlie Burgwyn’s precise attention to detail, “down to the last stitch.” Indeed, Stitch uses only highquality material, including durable waterproof fabric, to pair with fashionable color schemes, design and personalization. In November, Stitch announced the acquisition of Fennec Golf, an upscale line of golf clothing built around tech and performance fabrics, tasteful color and a level of attention to detail. The design styles for Stitch’s head covers, bags and accessories meshed seamlessly with Fennec’s soft goods. Stitch’s first splash at the PGA Show came through sheer presence. Stitch and Fennec unveiled adjacent display booths of 2,100 square feet, accented by Stitch’s signature colors of blue, white and orange. Their booths remained among the busiest on the floor during the PGA Show’s three days. In addition, Stitch announced a partnership with Arnold Palmer Enterprises to introduce an exclusive line of products that pay tribute to the legendary golfer. Palmer’s family business selected Stitch to develop this exclusive line of tribute prod10 TRIANGLE GOLF TODAY • LATE SPRING 2018

ucts because they felt Stitch shared Palmer’s attention to detail and commitment to quality. Late last year, Stitch began offering white leather head covers featuring The King’s iconic, multicolored umbrella logo and racing stripes. Soon thereafter, the company released a set of black head covers, three colors of knit head covers, and special putter covers for blade and mallet models — designed for the millions of golfers worldwide who consider themselves members of “Arnie’s Army.” Throughout 2018, Stitch will introduce additional products featuring Palmer’s umbrella logo, includ-

ing umbrellas, gloves and travel bags. “Our idea is to pay tribute to a man who lived a quality life and had a major global impact on a major sport,” said Stitch Golf CEO Brad King. “The company (Arnold Palmer Enterprises) picked Stitch to partner with. Everything launched will convey a level of quality appropriate to a man of Arnold Palmer’s stature.” King, who decades earlier coached Burgwyn’s high school golf team, originally came on board two years ago to help Stitch Golf achieve its goal of becoming known as more than a “leather head cover” company. A CEO who had sold an office products business to Staples and was seeking a new challenge, King started doing some consulting work — “donating time,” he says, “to see if there was a play” — which led to the formation of a group of golf-savvy partners and investors that helped Stitch recapitalize in late 2016. One of the partners, Chris Knott, founded the Peter Millar clothing brand in 2001. King and Knott, along with two other partners — Alex Sossaman and Rick Hopkins — have taken the business side of the company off Burgwyn’s plate and set in motion an ambitious plan. Stitch has established a connected sales team and has also made its mark on numerous professional tours worldwide. PGA Tour pros Brendon Todd, Carl Pettersson and Dylan Frittelli are carrying Stitch products, along with Scottish U.S. Continued on page 11 www.trianglegolf.com

Amateur champion Richie Ramsay — while many college teams are using Stitch products as well. Currently, VP of Marketing Katherine Collins said Stitch Golf is focused on a trio of themes. “At Stitch we aim to help our customers ‘Dress Your Game’ by merchandising our line of products so you can easily put together items that not only match your bag and what is in it, but also match your style and personality. “We recently launched two new luxury travel bags that play off our motto ‘Arrive in Style’ and with our new apparel we are showing customers that we provide items that are suitable from ‘Work to Play,’” she said. Meanwhile, Burgwyn has been freed up to do what he has done best since launching his dream six years ago: Create. A former Class A PGA club professional and “a design, style and details wonk if there ever was one” according to one publication, Burgwyn regularly travels around Asia to discover new ideas. He recently demoed the Ultimate Garment Bag during an 18-day Asian voyage, visiting eight countries aboard 11 flights. “That’s Charlie,” Hopkins said. “He gets a bee in his bonnet for a look or a style or a fabric and just goes after it. He’s an animal — super detail oriented. It’s really impressive.” King said Stitch grew 200 percent in 2017 over 2016 and expects to expand by another 600 percent in 2018. “We’ve got momentum now,” he said. “We just need to push the gas pedal down.”

Bobby Long headed to CGA Hall of Fame

M

By DAVID DROSCHAK

illions of golfers who tee it up each year across North Carolina have likely never heard of Bobby Long, or know his connection to golf. Even those in the Triad area may have heard his name in passing, but can’t connect the dots. The good deeds that no one ever hears about are endless for Long, a Greensboro businessman who is credited with helping save the PGA Tour stop in Greensboro a decade ago. “Bobby is an incredible person who understands how golf can play a pivotal role in life for all of us,” said Eagle Point Golf Club director of golf Billy Anderson. “I don’t believe there is anyone that uses the game of golf as a conduit to help people any better than Bobby.” Long and David Strawn, a champion of junior, college, amateur and senior golf for more than five decades, will be officially enshrined into the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame in May at Quail Hollow County Club in Charlotte. They join a Carolinas Golf Hall of

Fame that includes such names as Arnold Palmer, Peggy Kirk Bell, Donald Ross, Billy Joe Patton and Harvie Ward. Long, chairman of the Piedmont Triad Charitable Foundation, convinced Wyndham to sponsor the PGA Tour event in Greensboro with a $25 million letter of credit. The Wyndham Championship

has since been transformed in a move back to Sedgefield Country Club in large part to the vision of Long. “When I heard the news that I was being inducted into the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame I felt completely unworthy

because basically my deal has been to be a cheerleader, and all these other people do the work, and do it in such a wonderful way,” Long said. “I am in awe of them, certainly not of me.” Long, 62, stepped in to help one of the nation’s oldest PGA Tour events when no sponsor arose in 2007, helping form a regional coalition of business leaders that included support from not only the Greensboro area, but High Point and Winston-Salem. “While the tournament name included the word ‘Greensboro’ since it was created in 1938, Bobby saw a bigger picture – an opportunity to use the Wyndham Championship to promote Piedmont Triad regionalism and market the metropolitan statistical area as a great place to live, work, expand or start a business,” said Wyndham Championship tournament director Mark Brazil. “As the regionalism effort began to gain footing, companies that would never have done so if it remained a Greensboro event began joining as tournament partners.” The CBS Sports broadcast of the Continued on page 13

Bobby Long from page 12 Wyndham Championship now reaches nearly a billion people in 225 countries in 32 different languages. “Mark (Brazil) and his team are incredible, and have been relentless in everything,” said Long, who grew up playing golf at Alamance Country Club. “They really do all the work, but then look at the community leaders, because the old GGO was predominately Greensboro and now the vast majority of the money comes from outside of Greensboro. I can’t sing their praises enough.” “The world gets a look into the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina, and that kind of exposure of golf in the Carolinas is truly priceless,” added Brazil. “When Bobby saved our PGA Tour event, he also saved many charitable organizations that benefit from it each year. Had the tournament gone away, their donations would have followed.” One such organization is The First Tee. Long is one of the top donors for The First Tee of the Triad and is perhaps THE major donor of the First Tee of Wilmington. “I’ve been pretty fortunate, so think about these kids who don’t necessarily have the same access and opportunity like I did,” Long said. “It’s a wonderful thing to try to

enable them to have the same chance I did. I was sort of born on third base by comparison. Why not try to give them a shot?” Long even stepped up more than a year ago when the Wells Fargo Championship was in need of a temporary location outside of Charlotte as the PGA Championship was going to be conducted at Quail Hollow in the summer of 2017. Long helped broker a deal at Eagle Point outside of Wilmington, where he is one of 20 founding members. The “new” Wells Fargo Championship was a rousing success along the coast. “Bobby saw the importance of keeping the Wells Fargo Championship in the state of North Carolina,” Anderson said. Anderson has been at Eagle Point for 17 years and has seen the club grow to 55 employees and 45 caddies. “I personally feel all of us are family,” Anderson said. “This culture has been single handedly created by Bobby and is a second image of his beliefs and his character.” Long is one of three children and began playing golf at the age of 5. He is now a 5-handicap. “I’m a middle child and my older sister is just a year and a half older, and she is extraordinary at everything and I completely deferred to her and when I was a little

kid,” Long said. “My parents said ‘He’s never going to think he’s ever any good at anything because she excels so much, so we’re going to encourage her to play tennis and have him go play golf. No matter how bad he is we’re going to tell him he’s great and maybe that will be contagious to other stuff so he’ll have some confidence.”’ Long grew up with current two-time defending CGA Senior Four-Ball champion Jim Grainger at Alamance Country Club. “We were best friends growing up and he and I played virtually every day that golf was in season, so to speak,” Long said. Some of Long’s fondest golfing memories aren’t sharing photos of stars such as Sergio Garcia or Davis Love, but of quiet, meaningful moments on the golf course with his wife Kathryn and son Robert. “I had so much fun playing golf as a kid, so I was hoping that my kids would like to play, but I didn’t want to push them to play,” Long said. “Our son took to it pretty well, in fact Gary Williams was an assistant at Greensboro Country Club and he would take Robert out and play two holes with him one day a week. He was such a cheerleader that my son would beg me to take him to the practice tee so he could get ready for that next week. He got to be a pretty good player.”

And when I asked Long about a best career round, he once again deferred to a family tournament he played at famed Seminole Golf Club. “A round that sticks out was we were playing as a parent-child team that has a lot of good players,” he said. “It was a tournament where you both tee off and he hits my drive and I hit his drive and we pick the best one and we alternate the best shot in. My wife wanted to play with Robert, too, and so did I, so they let us play as a threesome. The threesome tied for second in what Long calls his golfing “magic moment.” Timothy Neher, the president of Seminole Golf Club, may have summed up Long’s contribution to golf best: “Bobby’s humanity, coupled with his low-key and inclusive manner enable him to accomplish so much but also encourage others to engage and contribute – truly special gifts.” Founded in 1981, the Carolinas Golf Association Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have contributed to the game of golf and have a connection to the Carolinas. The plaques commemorating all of the inductees are housed in the convention hall of the Carolina Hotel of Pinehurst Resorts.

Grandover Resort: A perfect setting for a national championship

M

By DAVID DROSCHAK ethodist men’s golf coach Steve Conley has fond memories of the last time his team was on the big stage at Grandover. Sure, his team won the 2015 Division III national championship at the Greensboro resort, but the title and trophy presentation was only half the experience. “The staff at Grandover really wants us there and they are always very accommodating, and that means a lot to us,” Conley said as the highly-ranked Monarchs will join Guilford, Greensboro College and others in mid May for the fourth Division III men’s golf national championship here since 2011. Since opening in March 1996 behind the vision of Joseph Koury, Grandover has been one of the state’s top boutique hotels and has stayed true to its founder’s desire to put customer service above the beyond anything else. Koury built an empire over 40 years that included the Four Seasons Town Centre, the Holiday Inn Four Seasons, the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center, thousands of homes, hundreds of apartments, six shopping centers and two golf courses at Grandover. He passed away in 1998.

“I was privileged to have known Mr. Koury, and his goal and dream of Grandover was to create an atmosphere of home and resort – a place where folks can come and enjoy a couples getaway or corporate meeting, and he built two fantastic golf courses for people to come and enjoy – really for all of us to enjoy,” said director of golf Jonathan York. “That same philosophy thrives today. Over the years we’ve been steadfast in providing a quality product on the golf courses and staffing.” York was born and raised in Greensboro, went to high school and college here, and is an anomaly in the golf business. He has been at Grandover since Day 1, having just celebrated his 22nd anniversary at the resort. “Why would I want to go anywhere else? Look what I have here,” he said. “I am blessed. It is just a tremendous organization to work for. Come to work and then go home and spend time with your family. I am very happy here. “And I am proud of the longevity of the staff here with me. Our head golf professional has been here for 20 years. Him and I together for two decades - that just doesn’t happen much. And our merchandise buyer has been here 18-19 years. We all know our roles and we manage them with respect. That is what keeps us going.”

The more than 230 Division III players will tee it up on the West and East courses May 15-18. The East Course is coming off a green renovation project that York said was needed after two decades, switching from bent to Bermuda grass. “I love Grandover Resort for several reasons,” Conley said. “First, it is in North Carolina, which usually has nice weather in May. Second, both courses are good layouts, especially the East course where we play three of the four rounds. Third, the practice facility and the course conditions are excellent.” The East Course is a beast from the tips at 7,250 yards, placing a premium on driving the ball well and in the fairway. The par-5 finishing hole is one of the more picturesque in the state, with a large lake with a waterfall guarding approach shots. York says the greens on the East Course are what he calls “a little more vertical. So, if you miss the green you are going off into some catch areas or bunkers. So, getting up-and-down on the East Course is a little more challenging.” The West Course is more lenient off the tee, a little more of a placement course, and the greens aren’t quite as severe. “We love to hear that argument, about which course is better,” York said. “We have two fantastic products out here.”

In addition to the greens project recently completed on the East Course, Grandover has also refurbished the 247 rooms in its intimate hotel, and updated its spa. York says several other yet unannounced projects are also in the pipeline. And because of its close proximity to Sedgefield Country Club (2 miles away) Grandover has forged a great relationship with the Wyndham Championship each summer. “It’s nice to have a huge, first-class resort in the back yard of the Wyndham Championship,” said longtime tournament director Mark Brazil. “Wyndham Worldwide takes out a large part of the hotel for their guests, a lot of the players stay there, some of our bigger sponsors stay there, and we host two youth golf clinics on the practice range so logistically, it’s very helpful.” The Grandover exit is right off Interstate 40-85, about an hour drive from the booming western Wake County towns of Apex and Cary, and less than an hour and a half from Charlotte. ““We love showing the place off,” York said. “We like to tell people in North Carolina that they have a beautiful resort right in their backyard.

Mishoe leads Guilford’s leap in NCAA ranks

TRIANGLE MENS COLLEGIATE CHECKLIST

J

By STEVE WILLIAMS ames Mishoe had an outstanding junior career playing out of Prestonwood Country Club and showed his potential in a larger stage with a tie for 32nd in the 2014 North Carolina Amateur as a rising high school senior. He landed a scholarship at UNC Greensboro and played in five tournaments as a freshman in 2015-16, notching one top-10 finish. After not competing the following season, he transferred to Guilford College and has made an immediate impact for the Quakers, who have their eyes on the NCAA Division III Nationals that the school will help host at Grandover Resort in Greensboro on May 15-18. Mishoe’s debut at Guilford came in a dual match victory against Transylvania University in early March, where he was medalist at PGA National in Florida with a 72. He followed up with a victory in the Jekyll Island Collegiate Invitational with a 10-under-par 206, leading Guilford to second place in the team standings. The field featured 30 teams, including 13 of the top20 in the Golfstat.com NCAA Division III head-to-head rankings. Mishoe’s 67-70-69 tally produced the second best 54-hole total in Guilford history. He had 18 birdies along the way, including a 5-under 31 coming in to complete his second round. The Quakers followed up in late March with their fourth tournament title of the season, traveling to California to capture the 16-team West Cup at Sierra LaVerne Country Club. Mishoe’s individual fourth was highlighted by a final-round 71 that helped Guilford edge host LaVerne by two shots in the 54-hole event. In seven rounds, Mishoe is averaging 71.0, and he leads the Division III national Golfstat rankings that were updated in early April. The successful March road trips to Florida, Georgia and California helped Guilford take a huge leap in the Bushnell/ Golfweek Division III Coaches Poll. Previously ranked 13th, Guilford climbed to No. 5. In-state rival Methodist tops the list. In the Golfstat relative rankings, St. Thomas University of Minnesota is first, Methodist second and Guilford eighth. The Quakers had a test run at the NCAA championship site in early April, playing host to the Division III Match Play Invitational at Grandover. They won three of four matches for a third-place finish. Guilford is off until the Old Dominion Conference Championship at Bryan Park on April 23-24, their final tournament before the nationals. 20 TRIANGLE GOLF TODAY • LATE SPRING 2018

Tiger is back, and good for him

F

By DAVID DROSCHAK

ull disclosure here, Bets. I have never been a Tiger Woods fan and I never will be. I know “never” is a strong conviction. Some of my inner animosity toward Tiger stems from my two decades as sports editor of The Associated Press in North Carolina and covering Woods in several Majors. I still don’t like folks who make my job more difficult, and Tiger was at the head of that list back in the day. He was mostly condescending and petulant to reporters. Think of the polar opposite of Arnold Palmer and that was Woods in a nutshell. He appears to have mellowed over the last five years of true turmoil. Plummeting from No. 1 in the world to 656th, getting caught up in a sex scandal and losing millions in sponsorship money can humble even the most self-centered people. I will argue that Woods was never really “good” for the game, no more than Michael Jordan was “good” for the NBA or Wayne Gretzky was “good” for the NHL. All great, yes, but why exactly was each so “good” for the game? Did they make tons of cash? Sure did. Did others like TV networks make tons of 22 TRIANGLE GOLF TODAY • LATE SPRING 2018

under the pressure of playing a game. You don’t have to be glued to the screen to see what Tiger is doing. PGA Tour coverage is torture. It doesn’t matter who is leading, there is only Tiger. That brain under his grey balding head took a wrong turn on the 16th hole at Bay Hill. I knew as soon as he swung so hard that he risked snapping his back fusion that the ball would be offline. One ball out of bounds and his day was over. Nothing new here; he could have continued winning tournaments with a 3-wood and an 8-iron, he just couldn’t stand being out driven by the younger players. So foolish. Imagine what Mr. Palmer would have said to Tiger as he came away knowing his own choices had lost the tournament he wanted so much to win. Tiger said it was because he didn’t commit. Oh, he committed. He just let his 1999 brain run his 2018 body. So, it appears that we have similar opinions about Mr. Woods. My guess is he will win again. Not so sure about a major. TV may ignore Casey, Reid, and Thomas, but that doesn’t mean they won’t come away with the win. www.trianglegolf.com
