SVS Vision Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
Though the layout is welcoming to all golfers—from weekend warriors to players with scratch handicaps—danger is never far at Rattle Run Golf Course. Pine forests are an ever-present threat, lurking just outside the primary cut of rough, beyond most of the greens, and in flashbacks triggered by pine-scented air fresheners. Meanwhile, 78 bunkers and several water hazards enter the picture on 15 of the 18 holes, ensnaring many golfers who play more aggressively than skill and conditions permit. On the other hand, those golfers who can keep their golf balls on the short grass likely find these rugged natural features to be picturesque, and choose to admire their beauty over drinks on the clubhouse's wrap-around balcony.
