Bedford Hills Golf Course, Temperance, Michigan

Bedford Hills Golf Club is a 27 hole course in Temperance, Michigan. The three nines are named the Wolverine, Buckeye and Irish.

It is a tight course, with some rather convoluted and often confusing routing. I don’t know that I’d make the trip to play there again, but it was well kept and a good bargain.

TaylorMade RSi1 Irons

TaylorMade RSi1 4-PW, AW Iron Set with Steel Shafts

TaylorMade continues its relentless release cycle with the RSi1, which features two slots near the heel and toe fo the club face that provides a uniform flex across the face. This design is supposed to provide better ball speed and more consistent distance on off-center hits. The 3 - 7 irons have an “improved speed pocket,” building on last year’s design changes.

“We’ve taken everything we’ve learned about Speed Pocket Technology and have been able to apply it into the face. Face Slot Technology provides greater consistency across the face, giving players improved performance on mis-hits. And you can only find Face Slots in RSi.”

The clubs have also added “multiple dampening systems” to improve sound and feel.

While TaylorMade has taken a lot of criticism for its seemingly unending releases, I think you do have to give them credit for constantly pushing ideas and technology.

Ecco Biom 2 Golf Shoes

ECCO Mens BIOM Hybrid 2 Golf Shoes - Concrete/Royal

I’ve become a big fan of Ecco’s spikeless biom golf shoes. They are incredibly comfortable to walk in, and I sense no performance difference between the spike-less and spiked shoes. Of course, I’m not swinging at 110 mph either. If I was, I might feel the performance difference. But I don’t, and I don’t.

Ecco’s Biom 2 spikeless shoes are designed as an improvement over their original “hybrid” shoe (which I think is already a classic).

The Biom 2 is designed to be lighter, while bringing your feet even closer to the ground. At the same time, Ecco says it has improved the outsole to be harder in the areas that need stability, while being softer in areas that require comfort.

The shoes feature:

  • Hydromax provides superb resistance to weather and perspiration
  • Yak leather uppers: extremely strong leather, lightweight, and highly breathable
  • Two sets of laces that match the outsole or the upper
  • E-DTS Hybrid technology: TPU dual-density outsole provides 800 traction angles and excellent grip
  • Performance-enhanced inlay sole: anatomically shaped with silicon print for better grip and stability

    Full press release follows:

    Shanty Creek’s Arnold Palmer-designed “Legend” Golf Course was named the Michigan Golf Course Owners Association Course of the Year for 2014.

    Shanty Creek, in Bellaire, Michigan, also is listed as among the Top 50 Resort Courses, and has a 4.5 star rating from Golf Digest.

    I’ve not managed to play and review Shanty Creek’s courses yet, so I guess I’d better put it on my priority list for next summer.

    Basic Golf Shirt Review

    Basic Golf Shirt Grade: A Teacher’s Comments: It would get an A plus, but it’s too “hip” for this 40-something guy. (Is “hip” even a term anymore?) The Basic Golf Shirt isn’t. Basic, that is. Rather, it’s a high quality, reasonably priced—and dare I say…
