Okay, so it’s winter, well sort of… it has been a strange one. One day it’s 15 degrees and snow, a couple days later its 50 degrees and sunny. Its made for a fun winter for golf. The course has been open a few days when it’s thawed out and not raining, but at Meadowbrook you can play golf any day of the year.

How’s that you say? Well I’m glad you asked! We have indoor golf. That’s right Meadowbrook has 2 state of the art, indoor golf simulators. You can play golf any day, rain or shine. We have 100 courses, including Spyglass Hills, Bay Hill, Firestone, Pebble Beach and so many more. Just call the ProShop or book online and you can be playing golf at your favorite Hawaii, California, or Florida course. And all this for just $15 1/2 hour. Not $15 per person, NO! $15 for 1/2 hour of simulator time. When you combine that with the money you save on airfare, WOW what a savings, and no jet lag!

On another note I want to take a moment to talk about one of Meadowbrook’s favorite staff members, Patty Wagner. Patty is a very important part of the Meadowbrook team. She has worked in the ProShop for the past four years and before that, Patty was the Finance Director for Meadowbrook when it was a country club. Okay…so Patty wouldn’t want me to tell you just how many years she has worked at Meadowbrook, so I won’t. I will simply say that it is going on four more years than half a century…you can do the math, and hopefully that will keep me out of trouble with Patty.

And while I’m telling things about Patty that she might not want me to tell, let me add this. Patty has recently been inducted into the Women in Aviation International Hall Of Fame! What you say? Again I say, glad you asked. Patty is a multi-rated pilot who has received FAA Master Pilot Award for 50 years of Aviation Expertise, which in itself is a great honor.  But the rest of the story…Patty is an airshow legend. That’s right our Miss Patty, sweet, quite, unassuming, Golf Staff person, is a Wing Walker! She along with her husband Bob, performed on the airshow circuit for many years. They have performed in 47 states, Canada, and South America. While most of us say we hate to fly or we fight off air sickness, Patty stood on the top wing of a bi-plane while Bob did aerial acrobatics! So, the next time you fly and you think maybe your seat is too small, or the person in front of you is a jerk, maybe remind yourself that at least your inside the plane.

That old saying about judging a book by its cover fits pretty well about here.  And the next time you see Patty, maybe say congratulations on her great honor, I know she’s my hero!

Oh and don’t tell her, but I have a video of them flying. So just ask and I will show it to you (but keep it quite, don’t want Patty to hear about this).
