On Friday, November 5, the Second Annual Grand Lagoon Golf Tournament takes place with a 9 a.m. Shotgun Start (Registration at 8 a.m.) held on the Nicklaus Course at Bay Point Golf Club located at the Sheraton PCB Resort. After the tournament, an Awards Reception sponsored by Makers Mark Bourbon takes place at the Club House (Bar 72). Makers Mark will be offering several of their High Mark, signature bourbons, and awards will be announced during the reception. Cost is $550 per team; visit GrandLagoon.com to register your team.
The following day, mark your calendar for the Sixth Annual Grand Lagoon Bloody Mary & Music Festival on Saturday, November 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the beautiful grounds of Sheraton PCB Golf and Spa Resort. Several Grand Lagoon bars and restaurants will compete for the title of “Best Bloody Mary in the Grand Lagoon.” Both a popular vote by guests of the event takes place, as well as by a panel of secret judges, who decide which establishment will be crowned the “Big Tomato” and awarded the impressive four-foot, tomato-topped trophy to keep until next year’s event.
Sheraton PCB Resort is the current champion; you can bet they will bring the trophy with every intention of leaving with it as well. You can also bank on the fact that all the other participating bars and restaurants have cleared a spot to rest the trophy for the coming year. It’s a friendly competition, but it’s fierce. Creativity is the name of the game, and these Grand Lagoon businesses come to win! Purchase tickets at GrandLagoon.com.
