Golf and Fitness Q&A with Valerie Saucier of the MAC

Summer is here! And we can look forward to some long days spent outdoors. For many, summer is the time for outdoor sports– softball, pick-up basketball, running, swimming. It’s easy to stay fit when you can just play outside, right? But what about golf? For a sport that requires outdoor play, it doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being physically demanding. Professional golfers have been known to drink and smoke on the green, and even to be unhealthily overweight. Not exactly common in the larger world of sports.

But it seems that the sun may be setting (or maybe already has set) on the era of unhealthy golfers. These days, anyone planning to play seriously should expect to be as fit as any other athlete– at least that’s the word from Valerie Saucier– the golf fitness trainer and expert at MAC Wellness.

Baltimore’s Country Clubs: Survival Skills 101

When a Baltimore private school family with several children applied for financial aid, the school politely suggested they reapply – after you have quit your country club. The story is true, and not even that uncommon, according to admissions staffers. It simply underlines the fact that for many well-off Baltimoreans, membership in a one of the area’s many country clubs  — Elkridge, Greenspring, Baltimore Country Club, Suburban, Caves Valley Golf Club, to name just a few — has been a part of life for as long as memory serves.

The bankruptcy last November of the Chestnut Ridge Country Club  has brought home to Baltimore the realization that club memberships are, in fact, a luxury that many people are having to reconsider in a down economy.  At clubs nationwide, members are quitting – a fact that can accelerate a club’s demise because, in the words of attorney Alan Bloom who represented a group of former Chestnut Ridge members, “It’s like a Catch-22. Every time someone leaves, dues go up.” And thus can begin a death spiral of less service, falling upkeep and further attrition.
