Event Description:

Attention lovebirds!  This event is for you.  Join us for this 27-hole scramble over two days, including an incredible retreat-style setting.  Each team will be a 2-person team of “lovebirds” and golfers of all skill levels are welcome.  We’ll play 9 holes on the first day, enjoy free time in the afternoon, and then we’ll reconvene as a group in the evening for dinner, fellowship, and an awesome guest speaker/marriage seminar.  Day 2 will feature 18 holes and the Awards Ceremony & Lunch.    The scramble format ensures that all golfers will have fun and a chance to contribute to the team score and our “bogey is friend” policy promotes pace of play.

The 5-Part “Secret Sauce” includes:

  • World Class Venue:  Currently researching several PHENOMENAL options.
  • Tournament Feel:  First tee announcements, scoreboard, trophies, awards, and contests.
