Father’s Day- A Special Time Spent Together

Father’s Day is right around the corner…and while it’s too late to attend our event this July at Pebble Beach, you can still sign up for the Cleveland Father/Son event in December. It’s a unique opportunity to play Pebble Beach and the surrounding courses located along the Monterrey Bay. Wouldn’t you like some quality time playing golf with your Father, Son or Daughter? Here are a few testimonies from our past attendees, many who have come back year after year.

Pinky and Gentry Pelham

I told Dick it would truly be my pleasure to write about the Father Son tournament at Pebble Beach. I said this because it is always one of the best times I have playing golf. To get to spend four days with my son playing golf in one of the best places in the world is truly a joy to me. The friends Gentry and I have made and the memories we have are extra special because we share them. I can only hope that Gentry and I continue to participate in the Tournament for many years to come. Pebble is a special place but it is even more special sharing it with your son! Pinky Pelham

Mike and Brad Furry

We have played in the World Pro-AM Father/Son event 17 times. As time goes on, the chance to be together is limited because each person is busy. We have a very large family so individual time is limited. This event allows us to catch up on each others lives. We both looked forward all year long to spending time together at Pebble. Each year has been very special, though the year we won our flight gave us both a great feeling of accomplishment. Just the competition alone is enough to bring us back so many times. Thanks to both you and Gordon for all your efforts. Sincerely, Michael Furry

Father/ Daughter Team Makes Memories

Team Net Champions Father/Daughter division, Kalyn and Bill Dodge from Irvine, California.

For the past six years Bill Dodge and his daughter Kalyn have participated in the Father/Daughter division of our golf tournament event at Pebble Beach. We had a chance to catch up with this team recently and found out why this tournament has been so special.

Dick Farley (DF): What made you choose this Father/Daughter event?

Bill: After Kalyn's second year in competitive golf, and having played a couple of scrambles we seemed to team up well. I wanted to play more golf with her at a competitive level and (wanted to play) some place special to reward her for all of her hard work. Your tournament was the perfect combination of all of the things I was looking for: 1) time with Kalyn, 2) Competition and 3) playing somewhere special like Pebble Beach.

Kalyn: For me, I wanted to play a tournament with my dad and the thought of playing Pebble (Beach) was hard to resist.

DF: What has this tournament meant to both of you?

Bill: It has meant more time together just having fun, laughing and talking. Making memories that will last a life time... We were already very close to begin with, this has brought us closer and given us something that we can do together for a very long time.... I can't imagine ever missing the Father/Daughter event.

Kalyn: It has meant so much to spend time with my dad.

DF: How important was the time spent together?

Bill: Since we have been coming for 6 years, the time spent has become more important as she has gotten older. Now that she is away at school during the year, and with short breaks and many friends to see when she comes home, this is the only true Father/Daughter (time) with no outside distractions that we have other than golf practice sessions. We have created so many memories that will last us a life time playing at the Father/Daughter tournament. We laugh, we grumble, we fight, we talk trash but most of all we have an absolute blast doing something we both love and will cherish forever. Thank you for keeping this tournament running, it has become an integral part of our lives.

Kalyn: The time we spent together has been unimaginable, irreplaceable, unforgettable. So many good times to count, (it's been) the best golf of my life.

If you would like the opportunity to make some unforgettable memories with your son or daughter while playing world renowned courses such as Pebble Beach, check out our tournament site. We would love to have you join us at one of our events!

Course Changes at Pebble Beach

Looks like Pebble Beach Golf Links are in for some major changes. Brian Hewitt from The Golf Channel writes the following:

On the sixth hole of the second round of the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Tiger Woods famously and impossibly hoisted a 7-iron from a nasty lie in the deep right kikuyu rough to an uphill green from 202 yards. The ball stopped less than 15 feet away.

Just like that, golf history and Tiger Woods lore had yet another snapshot framed inside the natural beauty of the Monterey Peninsula. “This is not a fair fight,” said an astonished Roger Maltbie from the booth on NBC’s live broadcast. It was a shot that makes all the Top 10 Tiger Woods lists. And it is a shot we will never see again.

The good folks who run what is arguably America’s most famous golf course have altered the hole. Significantly.

Moreover, they are in the process of changing the entire golf course. Significantly.
