As the Event Chair of the Windy City Gator Club, I had the great pleasure of putting together the 1st Annual All-SEC Golf Scramble which took place about a month ago. And it was a huge success! So here's the recap:
We had ALMOST every school represented (only one missing was Arkasas) on the big day which made for some great trash talking. One of our amazing sponsors, Gnome Frenzy, provided us with a little guy from each SEC school that we were able to gave away to 11 lucky winners (sans Arkansas). We also had a ton of other raffle prizes and give-aways from our gracious donors and sponsors.
Each player received 18 holes of golf and lunch (Backyard BBQ), along with two raffle tickets, a t-shirt, 2 drink tickets (good for two Sapporos, thanks Pat) and a goody bag with the cost of registration
The weather, well let's just say it couldn't have been any better. The morning started off quite early for the planners/organizers and around 5:00am the sky unleashed a mini hurricane on the city of Chicago! By the time we got out to Tamarack in Naperville around 6:00am it had stopped raining, but was still pretty overcast. At the shotgun start, 8:00am, it was blue skies and sunshine; and remained that way until all the players came in for lunch and awards!
There's plenty we can improve on next year, but I consider the inaugural event one for the record books! If you're an alumnus of any of the SEC Schools, or if you just really like to golf, we hope you join us for our 2nd Annual All-SEC Golf Scramble - (keep checking back as the date is still TBD).
Enjoy the photos, and Go Gators!!
