Bob Vokey Launches New HandGround Program on Vokey.com

CARLSBAD, CA – Master Craftsman Bob Vokey is now offering the tour grinding experience to all golfers through the introduction of the new HandGround program on Vokey.com.

For golfers seeking tour-level customizations such as additional heel relief, a squared up leading edge, or Bob’s popular tour grind, the HandGround program is the answer.

For the last year, Bob has personally trained two grinders on all of the performance and profile adjustments that have resulted from his more than two decades of work with the world’s best players.

Bob will oversee the entire HandGround process – located in a new workspace adjacent to the Titleist Tour Department, inside the Titleist Golf Club headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif. – and, from time to time, will also grind HandGround orders himself.

HANDGROUND OPTIONS: In selecting the HandGround option – currently available on all Vokey SM7 Raw models, the preferred finish of tour players worldwide – golfers will be able to choose from a variety of performance and profile adjustments (two adjustments maximum).

  • Performance adjustments: As course conditions change, tour players make adjustments to their wedges to improve turf interaction by grinding material off the sole of the wedge. These grinds allow the player to change the wedge’s playing characteristics based on their unique swingtype and course conditions resulting in finely tuned performance.
  • Profile adjustments: Having the right head shape inspires confidence. Voke works with tour players to dial-in the head shape that fits each player’s eye. Profile adjustments allow the golfer to design a confidence-inspiring head shape by grinding material off the profile.

Brand Initiative Promotes Native American Golf & Culture Travel Experiences

WORLEY, ID NAGolfCourses.com today announces that Circling Raven Golf Club – an amenity of Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel, tribally owned and operated by the Coeur d’Alene’s – joined the Native American Golf & Culture Travel brand membership program and its proprietary website.

Native American courses are most often pristine, with no surrounding development. As the Creator intended. Native American courses reflect tribal culture and traditions. Cultural assets and experiences include tribal art, pow wows, history, food, tours, and more. The golf is superb, as are the affiliated hotels, resorts, casinos and cultural immersion. However, they’ve never been branded collectively.

Circling Raven is an 18-hole course routed through 632 acres of pristine Palouse country. With no surrounding development, this award-winning Gene Bates championship design pairs ingenious holes with stunning scenery and solitude. Many who play the course, which includes a first-class golf shop and excellent restaurant with bar, claim it as an immediate member of their Top 5 all-time golf experiences.

Golf is just the start of the leisure options at Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel, which is currently renovating its casino with a planned Spring 2019 unveiling. Other amenities include the full-service spa, restaurants, retail and coffee shops, spacious rooms with inspiring Native American décor, and more.
