Brian and Lisa Wilson are living their dream. After a lifetime in golf they have opened up their own golf course and center just five miles north of Midland. Brian, a graduate of the Ferris State University golf management program, worked as an assistant in South Carolina and then at The Pines at Isabella. They always wanted their own place, though, and have worked tirelessly to make that happen. The two young entrepreneurs will have their hands full as they build their new business.
Lisa will handle the proshop, marketing and the books, while Brian will take care of the course and the development of his instructional program. He also will be available for lessons. He is a PGA member and has years of teaching experience. Brian's instructional philosophy recognizes that each players' swing style is unique. He takes the basic fundamentals of golf and applies them to each student to maximize each player's potential. His goal is for the student to have total enjoyment of the game.
Brian is the architect of the facility, having masterminded the practice tee, putting and chipping areas and the nine-hole course. A first impression says he has done a terrific job.
Forest View Golf Center is located near the intersection of US-10 and Eastman Rd., near the Midland Mall. Go north on Eastman approximately five miles to Hurley Rd., then east on Hurley.
