American Dunes stands as a tribute to the birthplace of Folds of Honor and is a world-class venue that goes far beyond the game of golf. American Dunes lives and breathes the Folds of Honor mission: to honor American warriors and provide support for their families.
Through our proud partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation, Team Titleist members recently enjoyed exclusive access to American Dunes for the inaugural Team Titleist Tribute event. If you were not able to attend, here is a look at what the group experienced:
To ensure each and every visitor understands the true meaning of American Dunes, the only way to enter or exit the property is through the Folds of Honor Memorial. After making their way through The Memorial, guests were given the proper Team Titleist event welcome in the form of a hefty tee gift stuffed full of goods from Folds of Honor, American Dunes, and Team Titleist.
After a quick warmup, American Dunes Head Golf Professional, Ian Ziska, officially welcomed the group before kicking off the golf festivities with The National Anthem.
Golf & Competition
Team Titleist wasted no time enjoying 18 holes of championship golf. It would be hard to improve upon the 80° weather with clear skies and a cool breeze off nearby Lake Michigan, but Team Titleist member Ethan D. upped the ante with the first-ever hole-in-one at a Team Titleist official event!
What would a Team Titleist event be without getting to experience our latest equipment? Attendees were divided up to Red, White, and Blue "squadrons" where they cycled between hitting new T-series irons, Vokey Design SM9 wedges, and competing for a Scotty Cameron putter in a 13-hole putting contest.
Jimmy Wisinski, Michigan Wolverine D1 golfer and Titleist staffer, joined the group to host a comprehensive wedge clinic. Jimmy provided key insights to help attendees select proper wedges (loft, bounce, grind) and key tips for tackling short-sided shots from tight lies with trouble long—an American Dunes defense specialty.
As the sun set on American Dunes, the torch burned bright at CAVU Fighter Squadron Bar where the group reminisced on the day over prime rib and live music. Guests enjoyed a few more thrills as we drew names for prizes like a Year-supply of Pro V1 Balls, a set of T-Series irons, TSi drivers, Vokey SM9 wedges, and just about any other premium Titleist product you could think of.
Most importantly, the constant mission fueling this special event never faltered: Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate their legacy.
A massive and heartfelt thank you to Folds of Honor and American Dunes for the extremely gracious hospitality. If you are a patriot that loves golf, and more importantly, our country, treat yourself to the experience at American Dunes: americandunesgolfclub.com
