An invitation will go out soon, which will allow you to sign up and reserve your spot!! Your $45.00 entry fee includes a round of golf, lunch, prizes for best scramble, longest drive and closest to the pin (for both men and women…) For Friends of Pusch Ridge enthusiasts who only want to join us for lunch – the cost will be $25.00. We will be gathering on the lawn adjacent to the tennis courts for lunch, awards, applause for a year full of fun, new friendships, golf conquests, photo’s and good bye’s to our friends that are heading out for the summer.
Watch your email for the formal announcement and reservation form! If the morning scramble fills up, we have the option for an afternoon group.
Cheers to our Friends!!!
Building Family Ties on the Course
One thing that residents who live on Pusch Ridge course have noticed the most this season is the varied age of the players. The group of players that is the most fun to see are families. It is heartwarming to see adults and children play together and have fun as they enjoy the course's beauty and each other.
Golf is a generational sport that can create bonds and relationships for all ages.
As per Matthew Marvich, who authored the article titled "How to Get Started Playing Golf With Your Kids"
"Golf is a generational game. I am not only referring to its origination in Scotland during the 13th century, but more so the generational relationships it will create.
My grandfather played golf, his sons (my dad and uncles) still play, and most of their children (including me and my siblings) play. And now I am teaching my four-year-old son to play. I want my son to have similar memories of playing with his father and other family members. I want him to take this game through his teenage years and into adulthood."
Push Ridge's 9-hole, par 35 golf course is a perfect course for building generational bonds and relationships! It can be played in under two hours which is perfect for children of all ages. Plus, children 15 and under play for FREE after 2 pm daily with a paying adult 7-days/week.
We encourage our readers to bring their families to the course and start building their own unique family bonds. Visit elcongolf.com to book your tee time or call them directly at 520.500.1250. [https://www.elcongolf.com/]
