2014 Women’s Golf Kick-Off

On April 30th, Radrick Team members joined UMGC Team members and the Women’s Golf Team Coaches to “kick-off” the start of the 2014 golf season.   Hosted at the Golf Teams’ practice facility, The Weisfeld Family Golf Center, female golfers were invited based on their support and participation in the University golf community.  At the event, they had an opportunity to learn what Radrick Farms and the UM Golf Course can offer to “grow the game” among female golfers.  It was a great chance to meet other women that share their passion for golf… and some laughs.

Participants were also given a unique instructional session from our Michigan Women’s Golf Coaches,  Jan Dowling and Mary Mattson, as well as Radrick’s PGA Pro, Mark Rudy. And let’s not forget to mention hors d’oeuvres and beverages! Thanks to everyone for making it an event to remember.

Future Farmers of America

Radrick Farms welcomed the Dundee, MI. chapter of the Future Farmers of America to the golf course on December 9th, 2012.  This group of forty high school students, led by their vocational agriculture instructor, Tom Stahl, hung 30 blue bird houses throughout the golf course and our neighbor’s property at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Robert Noworyta, father of student Angel Noworyta and an employee at the golf course, suggested the chapter assist with hanging the birdhouses.  This endeavor will enable the Dundee chapter of the FFA to apply for a national chapter award. The Dundee Chapter of the FFA returned on April 26th of 2012 to inspect their blue bird houses.  All involved were pleasantly surprised to find that 15 of 30 bird houses were inhabited.
