Hey LI golfers,
We've played lots of golf this summer. Yes, there were lots of cart path only golf in the rainiest June on record and lately the Dog Days of Summer have made reaching the 18th tee box a happy occasion.
And after the 18th, there's always every golfer's favorite - the 19th Hole.
The good - and smart people - @ Stonebridge Golf Club, on the border of Hauppauge and Smithtown, have come up a great golf and dinner package.
Starting August 7th, on Fridays, golfer have a chance to play a round of golf and follow that with a great dinner in their nice and relaxed grill room, all for $80.
I've heard of Nine + Dine programs, 9 holes with a 5:00 PM+ tee time, followed by dinner, but this is the first I've seen of an 18 hole + dinner package.
I think it's a great idea. You play Stonebridge's well manicured course with their undulating greens and get to enjoy a fine dinner, just steps from the 18th green. I'm sure we'll see many clubs adopt a similar promotion in 2010.
It's a Win - Win, the golf club keeps the golfer on-site and the golfer can extend their experience with their client or friends.
I've heard that the World Golf Network is expanding to Long Island in 2010. This is a great organization that helps put business executives in position to engage other decision makers, both on and off the course at seven outings, one of which will take place @ Stonebridge.

See you on the tee box.
