030 – American Dunes (feat. Doug Bell)
Featuring Doug Bell
What do a fighter pilot, mag wheels, Jack Nicklaus, Lake Michigan and a mission so powerful it touches the very soul of America have in common? An unbelievable new bucket list golf destination, of course – American Dunes Golf Club!
On the eastern shores of Lake Michigan lies the historic Grand Haven Golf Club which was transformed into a national treasure. Sculpted through the deep sands. Inspired by a passion for America. Built to honor American warriors and fund the legacies of their families. It’s a place of gathering for patriots who share Mr. Nicklaus’ love of the game. And our country.
There is no place like this in America. This is for America. American Dunes.
In this episode we’ll talk to the General Manager of American Dunes, Mr. Doug Bell as he tells the story of how a vision became a reality from Lt. Col. Dan Rooney, a PGA Professional, a F-16 fighter pilot with three tours of duty in Iraq, a husband, a father to 5 girls, and the founder of Folds of Honor Foundation.
The vision for American Dunes transcends golf, serving not only the mission of the Folds of Honor but also as a safe haven for veterans and their families to find rehabilitation through the greatest game ever played. Jack’s game.
