Today TheGolfingDads.com played in the Monday After The Majors for SportsTalk 1080 in Orlando at Shingle Creek Golf Club. If you remember back we played in the first event this year after The Masters and had a blast. Today was no different.
The event is hosted by the Ackerman and O’Neill Radio Show on Florida SportsTalk 1080 and they host one on the Monday after every major championship. Brady Ackerman and Jerry O’Neill are two great sports talk hosts who have a love for the game of golf and they love getting everyone together to have a great day of fun, golf and give out a few prizes in the end. TheGolfingDads.com donated a Jones Sport Golf Bag for their raffle today and the gentleman who won it was very excited to get a new bag for him to use.
There were a couple great hole-in-one prizes that no one ended up taking home. On the 7th hole there was a motorcycle, ATV or jet ski from Seminole Power Sports and on the 17th hole someone could have won a Volkswagen Tiguan. At the awards banquet they raffled off a lot of great prizes including a 3 night stay at Ocean Landings Beach Resort and a 2 night stay and round of golf for 4 at Rosen Shingle Creek.
The tournament was $69 to play in and included golf, breakfast, lunch and on course drinks for everyone who played. TheGolfingDads.com donated koozies for everyone to take home with them as a take away today.
We reviewed Shingle Creek Golf Club after The Masters Tournament but were want to say that if you have not played Shingle Creek you are really missing out and need to add it to your must play list if you are in Central Florida or on your next family vacation to visit the area. The course is always in perfect shape and the staff is so accommodating. After our round today the bag drop/valet team had taken our clubs and put them in our cars as there was a storm coming in so they were not sitting out at bag drop. This was a really nice touch to know that our clubs were not exposed to the elements.
The Golfing Dads didn’t win today (we ended up with a 68) but the winning score was a tie with 59! This was an awesome score today. The wind was blowing pretty good and it seemed that every hole was playing in a cross wind.
Ackerman and O’Neill are great hosts and didn’t win today. They came “close” but it was Jerry O’Neill’s drive on 14 that was the deal breaker. Maybe next time they will get their first win.
Dads Say So we had another amazing time today playing in Monday After the Majors. We would like to thank Jerry O’Neill and Brady Ackerman for hosting a great tournament. The 80 or so players who came out today had a great time and were certain they will be back for more fun after the British Open. Even though we didn’t win we did have an amazing time playing an awesome course and having a lot of fun.
