Flora-dale resort silver lake MI
« on: March 02, 2013, 06:07:08 PM »
If you don't know, I collect old postcards and brocures of silver lake area.  I just got a new one I thought I would share.  This is Mac Woods resort before it became mac woods dune rides.  I don't have an exact date but from the info on the brocure I'm dating it to 1947-1948 unless someone had more info I think that is correct.

Those are cool :thumbsup:  But does any one know what CROLF is ?  List on the bottom of the AD alone with the swimming, boating, Dancing?, Golf.  Maybe it's a early version of Croquet Game?

Crolf

Combination of golf and croquet. Played in rougher courses with large dish shaped holes.

There is a crolf course near Silver Lake Michigan (or was back in the late 40's and 50's)
