New partnership fuses family golf, fitness and recreation offering an unprecedented value through GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs.

Sioux Falls, South Dakota (December 11, 2013) – With family time at a premium, a renewed awareness of the importance of fitness and people of every generation feeling the economic crunch, the time is right for a new model for living well. That model is GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs.

This new venture is a fusion of family golf, fitness and recreation that offers an unprecedented value and an opportunity to get together, have fun and get fit – all at a family-friendly price. Convenient and affordable, it invites members to “Enjoy the GreatLife.”

According to President Thomas P. Walsh, Sr., “Our mission is to enrich the lives of families and individuals through golf and fitness. We will be the best in value, convenience and hospitality.”

GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs brings together some of the finest golf, fitness and retail resources including Bakker’s Crossing, Central Valley, Rocky Run, and Willow Run golf courses; EmBe and Sioux Empire Fitness; Golf Addiction (offering discounts on golf simulators, golf leagues and golf instruction); Austad’s Golf (operating pro shops in all facilities); and Mike Malaska, renowned golf teacher and author. With more partnerships in the works, the company expects to expand membership benefits by adding more courses and clubs.

A resource center in each club will connect all courses, fitness centers and partners to keep members informed of opportunities for training, specials, clinics, events and news. This hub will also allow members to book tee times for any affiliated course from any of their facilities.

GL Management, L.L.C. will offer affordable family and individual memberships that include unlimited access to its golf courses and fitness facilities all year long with some open 24/7. The membership will allow members to workout or play at any of the golf courses and fitness centers affiliated with GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs.

A great opportunity to utilize golf courses and banquet rooms that are virtually empty throughout the winter months, GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Club will convert these facilities into full fitness centers with state-of-the-art equipment, steam rooms and some with swimming pools.

“Just as we have done with our Burger King® restaurants as the best franchising in North America, our goal with GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs is to be ‘simply the best’ with facilities, programs and people – making a difference in people’s lives, especially children and families,” said Walsh.

GreatLife will also offer professional training and coaching for various sports at a variety of their facilities. Mike Malaska, 2011 National Teacher of the Year and Worldwide Director for Jack Nicklaus Golf Academies, will be partnering with GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs in this revolutionary endeavor.

Local LPGA pro Kris Tschetter is joining the GreatLife Malaska Golf & Fitness Clubs team as spokesperson. “Along with our philanthropic partner EmBe, we will support and develop programs to strengthen EmBe’s mission and efforts to positively impact the lives of girls and young women,” she said.
