The Michigan Golf Course Owners Association (MGCOA) has named The Legend at Shanty Creek Resorts the 2014 Golf Course of the Year. The award is presented annually to golf properties that exhibit the “highest regard for variety, playability, and aesthetic appeal.”
“It is always an honor in this industry to be recognized for your efforts,” said Brian Kautz, Director of Golf and Head PGA Professional for Shanty Creek, “and that’s especially true here in Michigan where there are many prestigious golf properties. We’re proud to be among the ‘Who’s Who of Michigan golf.’”
This has been a good year for Arnold Palmer’s masterpiece. Earlier in the year GOLF magazine named it among the Top 20 Public Golf Courses in Michigan (#19), along with Shanty Creek’s other premiere course, Cedar River (#10).
The award will be presented at the Michigan Golf Business Conference held in Mt Pleasant during December 1-3. Said Kate Moore Executive Director of MGCOA, “The Legend is in the limelight due to a long list of accomplishments, community contributions, and exceptional management.”
