Golfers get ready. Grand View Lodge will be celebrating Golf Week May 28th through June 11th. Dedicating two weeks to the world of golf and the people that love game, the resort will feature a two day tournament, grand opening and ribbon cutting by Fred Boos of the new Lakes 9 at The Pines, golf specials and theme days as well as the introduction of Grand View Lodge’s new online booking app for mobile phones, websites and Facebook.
Festivities will kick off Monday the 28th with a ribbon cutting by Fred Boos at the New Lakes 9 at The Pines. Fred Boos changed the face of golf forever in the Brainerd Lakes Area in 1990 when he brought in legendary golf architect, Joel Goldstrand, to build a championship course. One of three of the resort’s renowned courses, The Pines, will open its Lakes 9 course for the first time this year with new renovations including restricted tee boxes on 14 holes, scenic rock walls, added yardage and major enhancements to the property’s signature hole, Lakes #7.
The ribbon cutting will be followed by the Lodge’s 21st Annual Fred-Mark Charity Invitational, taking place Monday, May 28th through Tuesday, May 29th at the property’s championship courses, The Pines, The Preserve and Deacon’s Lodge. Proceeds from this event will benefit Bridges of Hope, a faith-based nonprofit organization which links families to community supports and resources. The two-day tournament will feature putting contests, tee prizes, as well as silent and live auction items including sporting event tickets, resort stays, memorabilia and leisure packages.
“Golf has always been an important aspect of Grand View Lodge. Therefore, we wanted to create an event that showed golfers not only our appreciation for the game, but also showcase the newest amenities and services that we have to offer,” said Jack Wawro, head pro at The Pines at Grand View Lodge. “From our newest renovations and tournaments to our online application and special prices, we want to show our guests and the public that we love the game just as much as they do.”
Other activities taking place include, the release of Grand View Lodge’s new online booking app for mobile phones, websites and Facebook, allowing golfers to make their tee times, receive specials and track their play throughout the year. The app is available for free download from any mobile app store, search GrandViewGolf or via grandviewgolf.com and the resort’s Facebook page.
Furthermore, discounted prices and free clinics will be offered for young golfers as well as theme days and specials at each of the property’s championship courses. At the main property, Lodge employees will be dressed to honor the great game with a variety of golf-themed activities, including special menu items at several onsite restaurants and golf-themed spa specials.
