Here, General Manager Bruce Grundlock shares some his favorite aspects of the game with Urban Agenda Magazine: 

UA: How long have you been playing golf?

BG: I have been playing golf for more than 20 years.

UA: What is your favorite aspect of the game?

BG: That you are your own judge.

UA: What makes your course unique?

BG: The number of bunkers we have on the course.

UA: What is your favorite hole on the course and why?

BG: My favorite is hole number 16, because it has a drivable par 4.

UA: What type of equipment do you recommend?

BG: I recommend Titleist equipment.

UA: Have you ever competed professionally?

BG: I have played in mini tours across the United States.

UA: What tips and tricks can you share with readers to help them develop their game? 

BG: The best tip I can give is how to best hit out of the bunkers. Players want to take their swing path from outside to inside, with an open stance. Most people try to hit a bunker shot with the same swing path and stance as their regular golf swing, but that is incorrect.
