The Masters

April is full of upcoming golf events.  For starters, if you are a golf fan, The Masters is a week early this year.  The tournament, which is usually played over Easter weekend, will be held April 6th through 9th.  The Masters is what gets me excited about the upcoming golf season.

Exciting News about the Inaugural Men's Stroke Play Championship

We have a new tournament that we are introducing this April.  We are conducting a men's stroke play championship called “The Oak”.  This will be a two-day, 36-hole event played on April 29th and 30th.  There will be flights based on participation, in addition to a net division.  In order to play in the championship division, you must declare your intentions.  If you don’t wish to play in the championship flight, we will put you in the flighted divisions. 

There will be some added incentive for this inaugural event.  We are hosting the Tennessee State Mid-Amateur Championship this September.  As the host club, we will receive one exemption into the tournament.  The winner of this year’s stroke play event, in the championship division only, will receive that exemption.

New Apparel in the Golf Shop

We have some of newest and greatest coming into the Golf Shop daily.  We carry a wide selection of golf shoes from Adidas, Nike, Puma and Footjoy.  We have men’s and women’s shirts from Footjoy, Adidas, Peter Millar, and Donald Ross.  Golf bags from Callaway, Sun Mountain, and Titleist are now available.  If you are a Grizzlies fan, we still have a couple tee shirts left before the playoffs.  Some new things coming in April include: embossed belts from NexBelt, headwear from Pukka, sunglasses from Oakley and Maui Jim, and shoes from Skechers. 

Come join all the fun this April!

Keep the birdies rolling,
