Package includes transportation to and from Bowers Harbor Vineyards. Dave Pelz takes a cue from fishing when he talks about his short-game philosophy. Be assured, Pelz knows the stats. A former senior scientst at NASA with a physics degree from Indiana University who aspired to a career as a professional golfer, he transitioned to golf instruction instead.

His focus on the short game produced the national best-seller, The Short Game Bible , in , and he is widely recognized as a leading expert on the subject. Over the years, Pelz, a contributing writer for major golf publications, has worked with leading tour professionals including Phil Mickelson, who is renowned for his short game. Some are no more complicated than this advice: Always attempt to hit putts 17 inches beyond the hole. You want to learn those nifty pitch shots around the green; you want to be the best sand player or lofted-wedge player in your foursome.

That explains our focus on short-game shots and putting. Our students leave our schools with a working plan and very useful skills and practice regimens for playing every key shot on and around the greens. The Pelz school offers three variations. The premier is a three-day Scoring Game School that includes putting, chipping, pitching, and wedge and sand play instruction, with video analysis.

The two-day program focuses on the wedge; there is no putting instruction. The goal is to teach solid mechanics in the short game plus essential skills from yards and in. Video analysis and practice with continuous feedback are included. Both the three- and two-day schools offer 4-to-1 student-teacher ratios. The one-day Scoring Game Clinic revolves around six hours on the basics of the short game and putting. Students take away a renewed understanding of the key shots necessary to begin on the path to better scoring.

Student-to-teacher ratio is 6-to The Pelz method focuses on turning three shots into two with more consistency. When that happens, scores and handicaps go down. That was the goal for Bruce and Barbara Browne. New to golf, the Saline, Mich. The instructors made it right for all of us. We never felt out of place. We just had a grand time.

Barbara was familiar with the Pelz method, having read his book. Bruce was not, but after attending the school, he started to read it.

Bruce would like to attend the school again to fill in some blanks in his short game. Cooking up the perfect family getaway is a simple recipe. Mix equal parts kids with water, sit back, and enjoy the show. The Hidalgos — Kristin, Ben, and sons Henry, 4, and Teddy, 18 months — make an annual six-week trek from dusty Dallas to the cool climate of Northern Michigan.

Leaving Dallas for several weeks is never a problem, says Kristin, a patent attorney. They chose The Shores because of its access to beach and outdoor pool fun. Since golf is big in Texas, Kristin and Ben treated their friends to a round at The Bear, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course ranked as the 18th toughest in America, according to Golf Digest.

Kristin and Ben, who met on a Dallas street in while both were walking their golden retrievers, squeeze as much outdoor time in as their schedule allows. Their oldest child is cut from the same cloth. After water, there was fire. On Saturday nights, the boys roasted marshmallows at the Beach Club bonfire.

They hunted for fairy houses and tepees behind the Grand Traverse Commons. A family favorite was a day trip to Mackinac Island, where Henry biked 11 miles. When Ben and Kristin were finally able to sneak away for date night, they chose to play The Wolverine again after enjoying drinks and appetizers at the Clubhouse. As the family prepared to head back to Texas, they were leaving with no Petoskey stone unturned up north.

It took months of planning and practice, but Spa Grand Traverse has created an updated menu guaranteed to relax, renew, and rejuvenate. The menu also accounts for differences in client schedules. When reconfiguring the menu, the staff agreed that sticking with a holistic approach, using all-natural and organic products, was a priority.

The company uses sustainable farming and green practices, planting a tree for every product sold. To date, Eminence has planted more than 8 million trees around the world. The Spa also uses Body Bliss, an aromatherapy line made with all-natural materials, Thomas says. The products are free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh chemicals.

There are a lot of fantastic elements here and it comes down to aromatherapy and finding those individual notes that enhance certain sensations and feelings like when you are out walking in the woods and seeing all those textures and colors. We want to give you that feeling of being away and disconnected from everything.

The Spa also expanded services. Its body care options are more plentiful than before, for example, New Northern Nature treatments include organic wild sage and lavender.

The light herbal bouquet recalls the purity of Northern Michigan air and promotes healing and relaxation.

In under an hour, guests can indulge all of the senses with the Northern Nature Body Glow, an immersion in the purifying herbal scents of turquoise sage that concludes with a luxurious application of turquoise sage body butter.

The Northern Nature Body Masque is a wrap in purely moisturizing and soothing locally harvested raw organic honey.
