I is tough to win a golf club
championship. It's even tougher
to win two — in the same sea-
Birmingham resident and Garden
City dentist Michael Reich accom-
plished that feat this summer, winning
the club championships at Plum
Hollow in Southfield and at the
University of Michigan alumni course,
Raderick Farms in Ann Arbor.
Reich, 46, who plays golf 3-4 times
per week and is a 1 handicap, is a
member at both courses. "There's a lot
of guys out there who play better than
me," Reich says. "This game keeps
you humble.
Although he plays a lot, Reich says
his family comes first. He and wife
Annette have a daughter, Erica, 13,
and are active at Temple Shir Shalom,
where he is a vice president. He is
believed to be the first Jewish golfer to
win the championship at either course.
Winning at Plum Hollow was a spe-
cial thrill for Reich. He caddied there
as a youngster. According to his friend
and golf buddy Rich Leebove, Plum
Hollow has 90 single-digit handicap-
pers. Forty-five played in the medal-
play qualifier, followed by match play

"The American Technion Society fellowship allows me to concentrate

on my research. I hope one day to come back to the Technion and

make my own contributions, to Israel and the world."

and the 36-hole final.
At Raderick Farms, Leebove says,
Reich had to defeat some "flat bellies
who play college golf at nearby
Eastern Michigan University as well as
some pretty tough competitors who
belong to the club."
Reich has been building up to his
two championships. He made it to the
semi-finals at Plum Hollow in 2004
and was a finalist at Raderick Farms in
2003. ❑
