Our friends Jerry O’Neill and the Shot Doctor were back at it again on Monday this week. It was a Monday after a major golf event so that meant we were out at Celebration Golf Club in Celebration, FL for another one of their amazing event.
For those of you who have not played Celebration Golf Club, you are missing out on one of the best. It is a great layout and they have some of the best greens in the area.
The event is a two person scramble. Anyone under 60 years of age gets to play from the gold tees. If you are over 60 you get to play from the silver tees. Any ladies playing get to play from the forward tees.
For $55 the event included golf, range balls, lunch and prizes. Everyone ended up winning a prize. The grand prize was 3 day 2 night stay at Ocean Landings Resort in Cocoa Beach. We donated the TactiCool BAMF Golf Bag as well as a Happy Putter from Brainstorm Golf (review up and coming). Other prizes included Volvik Golf Balls, shirts and hats. The golf bag was a huge hit with the players in the event and everyone wanted to win it.
As for the golf. My dad and I teamed up to shoot a 6 under par 66. The highlight of the day was a 160 yard into the wind 7 iron into the 4th green. This par 5 has water down the entire left hand side of the hole. I hit one that covered the flag stick and when we found it, the ball was 6 inches from the hole. This would have been my 3rd career double eagle, had it gone in.
Our 66 put us in a five way tie for first place. After matching the cards we ended up coming in second as only one of the teams birdied the number one handicap hole. Congrats to the team from Shingle Creek for getting the victory trophies.
Dads Say So, while no one in our group pulled a Phil Mickelson in hitting a moving putt, we had a ton of fun. There were about 100 players in the field! This made for a great event with a lot of competition. One of the best things about this event is no matter who you play with, everyone there is going to have a lot of fun. The next event will be Monday, July 23, the Monday after The Open Championship. If you are local or going to be visiting then go to 969thegame.com or celebrationgolf.com to sign up now. We look forward to seeing you there!
