The fourth sentence read: "Season passes, weekday only passes, weekend only passes, punch cards for 9 or 18 holes and daily 9 or 18 hole greens fees are all available." It now reads: "Season passes, punch cards for 9 or 18 holes, and daily 9 or 18 hole greens fees are all available. A practice range is on property as well as two practice greens." The sentences that read "... TechFit benefit to discount their season pass price as well as payroll deduction. These programs are only available for MTU employees." Now read: "... TechFit benefit to discount their season pass price or punch passes. Payroll deduction is also available for Michigan Tech employees only." The sentence that ended with "... Par and Grill." now reads "... Par and Grill, club storage, and a shower area."
