Dear Members and Guests,
As ClubCorp continues through its milestone 60th anniversary year, we are celebrating with special programming, offers, and activities at our clubs, and, of course, focusing on our mission of Building Relationships and Enriching Lives. Connecting friends, families, and communities continues to be a priority. From beer and wine tastings, business forum luncheons, roundtable discussions, and cocktails for a cause to Family Fun Day and Friday Night Out activities, poolside barbecues, and game-day watch parties, our clubs offer all types of programming to help you connect in areas important to you. The clubs always are looking for new and creative ways to help you connect with other members. If you have an idea for a Member Connect event or program you'd like to see at your club, please email your club's general manager or me.
This year also marks the 30th anniversary of our National ClubCorp Tournaments. What started as one tournament in 1987 with 43 teams has expanded to five national tournaments that include both tennis and golf with more than 1,000 members and golf and tennis professionals participating. The Acura ClubCorp Champions Classic, the cornerstone of these tournaments, returns to Pinehurst this September. It's one of the largest private club tournaments of its kind and, in our opinion, the most fun, too.
After an unofficial trial run last year, I'm happy to tell you that we're adding the ClubCorp Parent Child Better Ball national tournament to the mix this summer, and I encourage you to attend. Open to parents, grandparents, and children ages 12 to 18, the three-day tournament will be held July 15-17 at the historic Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. We will absolutely make it a special weekend where you and your child will connect - and you'll leave with a shared experience that you'll never forget.
We look forward to seeing you at the clubs this spring and hope you will participate in some of the many events coming your way.
