"My golf pal and I went on a golf trip across the northern states in late August last year. We started in Rochester, N.Y., where we played a couple of rounds of golf. Then we came to Angola. I always wanted to play the campus course, Zollner, but hadn′t had the chance.
It was a beautiful golf course, and we enjoyed playing it. In fact, it rained on us when we were playing hole number 17, but we drove under a tree and waited it out so we could finish. I have played golf at the course southwest of town and at Lake James, but neither compares to Zollner. I only wish it had been there when I was a student.
I bought a Trine golf bag after we finished playing, and have been using it ever since. I am proud to advertise our school. After we finished the round, I toured campus. It is truly a beautiful place, and totally different from when I attended in the early ′60s.
After leaving Angola, we went on to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and across to North Dakota, and then back home via Iowa and Missouri. We played six more courses in those states. Zollner Golf Course was the best course we played on that entire trip! I will always remember my first round there, and hope to play it again soon. I am thinking about a stay-and-play package next time."
