Garland, 52 Years and Counting
Garland will be celebrating its 52nd anniversary this summer. The Michigan Golfer Internet Television was on hand to capture the 50th anniversary. We are offering this encore show to remind everyone about what an amazing person Herman Otto was. Viewers will see the ever-young Hildegard Otto, now in her 90's, take a pretty good cut from the tee box as she started off the day's activities. We also interview owner Ron Otto, GM Barry Owens, former golf pro Lee Woodruff and a host of others who have contributed to the fabulous history of one of Michigan's most storied resorts. Our guest host for the day is Jim McIntyre, a friend of the Otto family and a VP with Knorr Marketing in Traverse City.Everyone talks about the beauty of Garland with its terrific landscaping, beautiful trees and its abundant water. Many do not realize that when Herman Otto began Garland, it was a wheat field and there was not a tree on the place. Enjoy our story about one of Michigan's famed resorts.
