Apr 08, 2011
BANNER ELK, N.C. --- In this week's episode of
"Minute with Mac," Coach Mac featured the Lees-McRae College men's
golf program. This is a behind the scenes look at the program and
some of the local talent that make up this record setting team.
Also in this week's episode, Mac tied in the rich golf heritage
of Banner Elk, N.C. with that of Augusta National in southern
Georgia. Mac mentioned course design and history, as well as
current Augusta National Superintendent Brad Owen and his tie to
the Banner Elk community.
Continuing our theme, current Lees-McRae faculty member Laura
Padgett's father, George Cooke, shares a tie to the famed Masters
course. Cooke spent 32 years as the superintendent at the historic
Linville Golf Club and it was during his time at Linville that
Augusta National general manager Clifford Roberts visited the old
course, taking back design ideas with him to Magnolia Lane.
