Springfield hosted its first golf tournament under the new ownership. The format was a 2-person scramble, combined with the score from a randomly selected touring professional in the third round of the 2018 PGA Championship. Much like the actual PGA Championship, this event was an exciting and fun-filled day!
There was a good mix of residents, members and local players, with a pairing of one member and his guest winning, with the help of a great Saturday round from ASU’s John Rahm and his -4.
The event raised money for the Boys & Girls Club, which has a fundraising event in September! An event that is sure to be a huge success, as one of our owners is helping with the committee. For more information, CLICK HERE!
As for our event, we had closest to the pin contests, long drive for both men & women, a closest to the pin in 2 shots and a longest putt made. Everyone had a great time as we followed up the golf with a BBQ lunch in the Eagle’s Nest as we sorted out the leaderboard and handed out prizes. Some adult beverages were consumed and laughs echoed throughout the facility.
Our next event, held on September 22nd, will be a Junior/Parent event. Encouraging kids to have fun in a “relaxed competition” of 9 holes of golf, followed by food and fun! (Do you see a theme here, F-U-N!) Hosted by new Director of Instruction, Char Carson, you can find more information about the event on our Tournament & Events page and more about Char on our Lessons page!
Thank you to all the folks that came out to the facility lately, we hope you are noticing some of the work being done! I know we have been hearing from quite a few of you and we really do appreciate the words of encouragement and compliments!
Stay tuned for details on our next event…
Superintendent’s Revenge, with some tricky pins and super fast greens! (Not for the faint at heart) (It’s not really that scary)
