Merry Christmas from Greatest Golfer Central. The holidays brings the end of 2018 and the launch of 2019. That’s cool this year because we’re closer to this truth:
10 Summers of Greatest Golfer of the Valley.
10 Years. Our second 9 holes. (Not our back 9!). Our youngest Greatests next year were just starting to swing a club when Greatest launched. Below is your first look at the projected 2019 Greatest Turns 10 calendar.
Our friends from all these years are returning — Farmers National, The Lake Club, Mill Creek, Covelli Enterprises, Superior Beverage. All our other courses are coming back. New courses are joining. We hope you’ll come back. Take special note below of Friday, May 17 at The Links and also take note of Thursday, Aug. 15 at Tippecanoe.
We also hope some of you with businesses will help us grow. Our invite to you now is to look at your 2018 year-end budgets and 2019 promotions plans. Funding all of this golfsanity needs help. If you have room in your budget, think of Greatest. Email us now to craft a path.
We have created a host of low-cost sponsorships that start at $800 and proceed up to $3,000. All of them are varying levels of Greatest. All of them include your play in the 2019 Greatest. Just sponsor – and you are in.
