15 min read
Put a bow on summer 2017 with a long (romantic maybe?) weekend of golf, wine, food and fun at one of Central Oregon’s most beautiful destination resorts, Black Butte Ranch.
The 2017 Grapes & Golf Couples event happens September 14th-16th and includes a friendly (but competitive) tournament on both of Black Butte’s championship courses, Glaze Meadow and Big Meadow.
The event kicks off Thursday evening with a wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres reception. Friday provides the first tournament round of golf at Glaze Meadow, best ball format, and an exquisite four-course wine dinner at the award-winning Lodge restaurant. Participants tee off on Saturday for the final tournament round at Big Meadow, Stableford format, followed by a barbecue awards luncheon. Tee prizes, gifts, and gross & net prize payouts are all part of the event.
Lest you think it’s not a competition – this year’s tournament winners will win a VIP experience at the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The prize includes two passes for Feb. 8th or Feb. 11th, parking and full access to a hospitality tent on the 18th fairway that features chef-prepared meals, open bar, cigars, etc. This is one of the most popular events on the PGA TOUR, so this prize is huge!
