Back from Florida: Snow Still on the Dye Course




Today’s entry comes from Dave Harner, Director of Golf

I thought by heading to the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando last week I missed all the snow. But with snow again this morning, it looks like it’s going be around for awhile. I have to say I did enjoy the near perfect weather in Florida.

While we were there, we co-sponsored a media event at Legacy Club in Longwood, Florida. Pete and Alice Dye were our special guests. We had a chance to promote the opening of the Dye Course in April to the group of over 100 people. Pete took questions from the media and then spent some one-on-one time with journalists. Excitement for his course at French Lick is definitely starting to build.

Both Pete and Alice played in the tournament and had a great time. It was good to get out on the course and hit a few balls even if the company was better than my score.

While at the show, we were able to find some great new ideas for the golf shops as well. You will see all of those when you visit this season. Look forward to seeing you soon!
