Chance of a lifetime still available

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Ever dream about what it would be like to tee it up with some of the most legendary names in golf?

According to Turkey Mountain Golf Pro Chuck McNeight, tournament director of the Horseshoe Bend Invitational, a few spots are still open in The Legends Tour pro-am stop scheduled for Sept. 28-29.

"We're going to have a limit of 14 teams and we do currently still have room for those wanting to play in the pro-am," he said.

The investment is $6,500 per team, with teams made up of a Legends pro and four amateurs.

"That's a really good price to get a chance to play with these legends," McNeight said. "With the PGA Tour and Champions Tour, you're talking about between $20,000-$40,000 per team to play in a pro-am. So this is a real sports marketing bargain for both regional businesses and golf enthusiasts."

In addition to playing at the Golf Course on Turkey Mountain with the Legends players, pro-am teams also receive four commemorative gift bags, eight tickets to the pro-am draw party, invitation to the golf clinic on Sept. 28, plus two days of interaction with LPGA Hall of Famers in town for the tourney.

For more information on sponsorship opportunities or participation in the pro-am, contact McNeight at 870-670-5252 or at mridporshop@centurytel.net.
