ClubLink Florida Pro-Am
07 NOV 2017
Why should you play in ClubLink’s Florida Pro-Am?
Do you like to golf? Do you like to have fun? Does doing both in Florida in December appeal?
Then maybe the better question is, “Why shouldn’t you play in ClubLink’s Florida Pro-Am?”
There’s a misconception that you have to be a top-flight competitive golfer to play in a pro-am. The reality is that is why amateur participants play off 90 per cent of their handicaps, no matter what that handicap is.
Sure, the competition is a major reason for the four-day tournament Dec. 3 to 7 at three ClubLink courses, but having fun and enjoying the camaraderie is at the heart of the experience.
“If you don’t have fun there, then that’s on you,” says ClubLink Member Marty Sullivan. “It’s really a great holiday. The weather is great, the courses are great, and you get to meet so many people.
“That, to me, is really the essence of ClubLink. Getting to know your fellow Members in such an enjoyable environment. There’s the competition for a few hours each day but the majority of your time there is just enjoying yourself with the other people.”
Vince DiRisio, who has been at every Florida Pro-Am since the event’s inception agrees.
“Like me, most of the people who go aren’t the best of golfers but the highlight is always the good times, the laughs, a few drinks around the pool, going out for dinner. The emphasis is on having fun.”
Fun aside, DiRisio, who is the national key account manager for Labatt (the event’s beer sponsor), has also seen a business opportunity offered by the Florida Pro-Am. “What better way to entertain clients? You get to play some wonderful courses and you get to socialize with them and get to know them better. “
Highlights of the Florida Pro-Am experience include four nights’ accommodation at the Marriott Coral Springs Hotel and Convention Center and two rounds at TPC Eagle Trace and one each at Palm Aire Golf Club and Woodlands Country Club.
Your package also includes an opening-night reception, a Hertz minivan for your team, breakfast and lunch each day, and more. Special pricing on WestJet flights to Fort Lauderdale is available for participants.
