Rivers Edge Golf Club’s first event of the year, the Sweetheart Tournament, was a big success. The weather was in the mid 60’s with plentiful amounts of sunshine. The format for the Sweetheart Tournament was a Texas Scramble, Best Ball, with 100% of the players handicap index used. We had a total of 40 participants, issued prizes to the top 3 teams in the Gross & Net Divisions and had a closest to the pin contest for both men and women. The great day of golf was complimented by a wonderful taco bar at the awards ceremony by our great staff in the Double Eagle Grille
Just when you thought it was a wrap; a special surprise was still in store for our participants. We arranged for our digital marketing partners at Zeus Media to be on site taking photos and filming B roll of the tournament. All participants were send a personalized couples photo with a Valentine theme border the following day, February 14th. All participants will also received a video of the tournament.
The icing on the cake arrived February 14th when our Double Eagle Grille doubled down and hosted a special Valentines Day Dinner. The restaurant closed early to begin decorating and preparing for a romantic evening. The dinner was sold out with a waiting list we worked hard to accommodate. Members and residents of Rivers Edge dined in a formal setting with Valentines theme decorations splashed around the clubhouse. The evening was complimented by our very own Donn Stanley as he played music and enhanced the atmosphere.
