SLO Golf Card Member Appreciation Event 2011 at Dairy Creek Golf Course

Our Appreciation event was our best so far; third time is a charm! The day started with a bag drop, a bag pipe serenade (compliments of Paul "Piper O' the Pines" Dunn), donuts, checking in, finding your cart, meeting your friends, range balls, and a chance to win free rounds of golf playing our miniature golf course on the putting green.
On the Course we had a few suprpises in store for our guests that differ from what they usually expect when they come to Dairy Creek! Some of the greens had mulitiple holes cut into them, one being the regulation 4 1/4" hole and one 6" hole. There was a straightest drive competition on #5, popcorn and wine on the 8th tee box, blackjack on the 10th tee to determine what tee you would hit from, closest to the pin on #13, three reverse shortened holes on #14, #15, and #16, and a chance to accept an aspiring pro's (Eric Olson) drive on #17.
All in all the day went exceptionall well with the culmination at the restaurant and bar with a fantastic buffet of tri tip or chicken masterfully prepared by the chef's alongside of a spring tossed salad, potatoes, steamed vegetables, rolls, and a plethora of cookies for dessert. The awareds were MC'd by Cody Van Dorn and went very well this year with great crowd participation. The winning gross and net teams each won 8 rounds of free golf and the 2nd place gross and net teams each won $100 gift certificates for the restaurant and bar. Over all nearly $3000 worth of merchandise and free rounds of golf were given away at the event! If you did not get a chance to play this year put the event on your calendar for next year as will not want to miss out again, trust me!
