Member Spotlight

*NEW* Each Monday, we put the spotlight on an ING member (#MemberMonday). 


Mike Kern has been working at the Philadelphia Daily News almost since the day he graduated from Temple 38 years ago. Mike has won many awards for his writing. He has also covered all but two of Tiger’s major victories. Mike says, “You want me on your scramble team, mostly for the comic relief, but I have my moments both ways. I just used to be better. Now I need the forward tees.”
Last month, Mike and his wife became first-time grandparents, welcoming Brayden James into the world. “Poor kid looks like me, my son Stephen and my mom. Heaven help him,” joked Mike. Mike was the first individual to register for the ING Spring Conference in Biloxi!

Citrus Golf Trail

The Citrus Golf Trail, located just 60 miles south of Disney World, is a collection of great golf courses located in Sebring, Florida that offer history, value, fantastic golf, and the friendliest service anywhere.  With courses that build on the natural beauty of South Central Florida (picture moss-covered oaks and preserves that provide a picturesque backdrop), golfers may find it difficult to keep their eyes on the ball. Wet and dry, sandy and woody conditions combine to create challenging and fun courses for any skill level on Sebring’s fairways. And, Sebring is one of the most affordable golf destinations anywhere in the country, even in peak season, where golfers can stay and play for as little as $99 per person per night including room, golf, and complimentary breakfast.
