CHECK IN MICHIGAN’s hospitality and tourism members, met up on the green of St. Ives Golf Course at Tullymore Golf Resort in Stanwood, Michigan for CHECK IN MICHIGAN’s annual golf outing on August 9.
Teams consisted of first time and avid golfers from across the state and industry. The day was spent in the pure Michigan outdoors where golfers were able to socialize, network and have fun with some of Michigan’s knowledgeable hospitality and tourism members, attractions, CVBs, industry vendors and suppliers, and other industry partners.
CHECK IN MICHIGAN takes hospitality as serious as its members do offering golfers a bloody mary bar, beverage cart, lunch, swag bags, golf balls, a putting contest, mulligans and an option to “Play the Pro’s Ball.” This year a putting contest sponsored by Chase Creative offered teams the chance to win a 2019 Golden Passbook to use during the 2019 golf season. The day ended with golfers gathering around the 19th hole to distribute the annual awards and a few new ones. Some of the awards at this year’s event included best dressed and most lost balls.
Contest winners include:
Ladies’ Closest to the Pin Liz Kondik, Grand Traverse Resort & Spa
Men’s Closest to the Pin Bob Ranck, MDOT
Ladies’ Longest Drive Terese McInnis, Traverse City Tourism
Men’s Longest Drive Ryan Wilkins, Residence Inn by Marriott Ann Arbor Downtown
