Blind Pig Confessions's Podcast

Apr 7, 2017

Between rounds of The Masters, take a break to tune into this week's episode to hear about one of the most beautiful, as well as toughest, golf courses in the Midwest. 
Located in majestic Northern Michigan in the small town of Onaway rests the UAW Black Lake Resort and Conference Center, a sportsman's paradise and nature lover's dream.  We had the pleasure of sitting with my friend and Black Lake's Event Sales Manager, Alissa and Mike, the resort's resident golf pro.  We get loosened up on a few craft brews available at the lodge which includes Bell's Oberon and some ice cold Leinenkugels.  Mike details the magnificent golf course which was designed by Rees Jones himself and soon after the storytelling begins.  Dougy Fresh gets a little nostalgic of growing up just up the road in Cheboygan, Michigan, Mike tells a chilling experience of falling through the ice, and we explain to Pat the meaning of "toehead" and "two tracking". 
If you're thinking of where to take the family on vacation this summer where you can take in a bit of nature, plan a wedding or a reunion, tune in to hear about this amazing facility nestled in a thousand acres of high wooded land and evergreen terrain of the shores of Black Lake. 
Dougy Fresh and Alissa had some old friends(Kurt Derhammer & Alex Chasse's pop, Bob) join for the last 20 minutes of the show to toast with a few shots of whisky and reminisce. 

Lots of shout outs which include:  1991 Cheboygan Area High School 20yr Reunion, Michelle Dickey, Ryan Douglas(who refused to get on a mic), Downtown Johnnies Tavern Cheboygan, Benjamin K. Slocum and Beard's Brewery, Short's Brewing Company, Cheboygan Brewing Company, Clam Lake Beer Co, Round Barn Winery, Distillery & Brewery, Journeyman Distillery, Founders Brewing Co., Petoskey Brewing, Eddie Renner, and Adam Drake of the Black Lake Resort
