BALDWIN — Pat Ackerberg and her husband Tom live in the ideal spot.

They live during the summer months at the RV resort across from the Marquette Trails Golf Club and are members of the golf course.

“We're here six months of the year,” Pat said. “We're in Texas the other six months. We're from Muskegon but my husband's family is from here.”

They both are active players at the course.

“I used to play in the women's league,” Pat said. “My husband plays in the Wednesday men's league.”

They've played the course off-and-on for about five years.

“This is our main course and we're members,” Pat said. “It's a beautiful course. The greens are so challenging. There's one green where we believe they put an elephant inside it. The course is very well kept.

“We've also played at Hickery and Caberfae.”

They're in the area April through October. They'll return to Texas in November.
