Course of the month: “The Volcano Hole” at Fircrest Golf Club in Fircrest, WA is where we will be holding the Fivesome Golf Event on May 10th.  A.V. Macan’s original intention of creating a hole resembling the glaciers of Mount Rainier had been lost over the years. Architect Jeff Mingay and superintendent John Alexander were involved in the restoration.
