*This past mid-October, Leo Shen, part-owner of Izatys Golf Resort, invited 20 of his Chinese friends from the Twin Cities to join 20 local golfers for an afternoon of golf which he christened the “USA/China Golf Match.” 

Among those 20 guests of Mr. Shen was Frank Xu, head of the Minnesota Chinese Golf Association, a group of nearly 200 Asian golfers who regularly frequent mostly public courses in the Twin Cities area. It was the hope of Xu and Shen that this tourney hosted by Izatys might become an annual event, attracting many more members of the MCGA to take in the challenge of playing the professionally designed Izatys 18 holes.
