In an upcoming Michigan Golfer TV show, our host, Bill Shelton, interviews Ray Hearn about some of his new projects. One that Hearn could not stop talking about was his new Strategic Fox course at the Fox Hills golf complex in Plymouth. It was a tremendous challenge for him to design the facility and he was delighted in the way it turned out.
Hearn has built a 2,554-yard, par-3, 18-hole championship course that allows any caliber of golfer to use each club in his or her bag. He has taken the entrance to the Fox Hills complex and put an inventive practice range to the right hand side and placed the new Strategic Fox course on the left side. The practice area features a driving range on either end, a superb chipping area and a wonderful putting green. The 18-hole course features holes ranging from 91-195 yards from the gold tees and 50-135 from the red tees. The course is beautifully framed by a 15-foot waterfall between the ninth and 18th holes. In addition, course officials have done a terrific job of landscaping and turf management.
Congratulations go to sisters Kathy Aznavorian and Sandy Mily for envisioning their new course. The duet also garnered some nice ink in the March issue of Golf Business magazine. The article, entitled Sister Act was a member profile that highlighted the new teaching center. Strategic Fox is scheduled for a July opening.
