Unemployed workers in Michigan got a bit of good news this week when Heather Highlands Golf Club in Holly, Mich., announced it would give a free round of golf to the jobless Michiganders and their children this week.
From April 27 to May 1, the club offered no-cost tee times to those who could offer proof they were out of work, such as by providing their Michigan Unemployment Insurance Card.
“A lot of our business is with automotive employees and that’s the industry that’s been hit hardest,” said Ben Feliciano, Heather Highlands’ manager. “It’s just a way to try and get people’s minds off it. Everybody feels the pain of what’s going on in the state.”
Heather Highlands is no stranger to offering free golf. For more 20 years, the course has held Golfer Appreciation Days at the end of the season where everyone plays for free.
