    Businesses Around Golf on Straight Down the Middle

    in Golf

    Golf is a very large and diverse business category. Many businesses are directly related to golf and develop or manufacture products that are directly related to the golf industry.
    Still others might be said to be on the periphery of the golf industry but none the less have strong ties to golf due to the nature of thier business.
    Such is the case with today's guests. 
    The first is Brix Wines. Bryan and Nancy Franks  have opened an upper end wine and beer establishment in Carefree, Arizona. Surrounded by large homes, beautiful scenery and high end golf courses they are rubbing elbows with people that are golfers and wine connoiseurs. 
    The other indirectly related business is Dr. Bret Wilson of Bell West Chiropractic. Bret regularly treats weekend warriors that have failed to take the proper precautions and preparation for a round of golf. He will give us some simple preventative steps to make our round more enjoyable.
    The third member of today's show is Kathi Haas. Kathi is co-founder of a portable golf cart seat cover. CartButty is designed to make sitting on hot or cold vinyl cart seats more enjoyable.
    Join us for interesting conversation with today's guest line-up.

    Coach Chris Hazelton

Our school opened six years ago with a freshman student body. Only  one player play golf  over multiple years and finish his senior year as a member of the team, keeping players is challenging.  Next season will be the first season that we will start with the same top 5 that finished with  the season prior.
    The Coach is an Arizona native and grew up watching his dad play who was and still is an outstanding amateur. He thoroughly enjoys coaching golf and is always thinking ahead to the next season as to how he can be a better golf coach.  He has also taught his son how to play the game just ashis dad taught him, and this past season his son played for him as a freshman.
