WILD GOLF @ Copper Creek:
Over the hills, through the woods,
up the creek and into the cup
The May 19th exhibition of Wild Golf
at scenic Copper Creek Golf Course
in Farmington, Michigan marked the
first time Wilderness Golf has been
played in rounds of mixed doubles,
that is, one gender of each per side.
As teams negotiated the course's
challenging hills and valleys in
their determined quests to be first
to the hole and in, it became readily
apparent that this was not the
serene walk in the woods
Mark Twain so wryly chronicled.
This was Man versus Man.
Woman versus Woman.
Man versus Woman.
All against the stopwatch,
toe to toe, helmet to helmet action
never before seen on a golf course
-- every stroke adroitly and
admirably covered by WDIV,
the Metro area's high profile,
mega-ratings NBC affiliate.
