The Pre Tee Beer Tasting
Summer Friday will begin with a pre- tee beer tasting including seasonal, limited edition and new releases of Brewery Ommegang’s delicious NYS craft beer.
When Is It
Friday September 9th. Play 9 or 18 holes. Pre-tee beer tasting with Brewery Ommegang begins at 1:15pm, shotgun start at 2pm. For golfers playing 9 holes, the tee time is 5pm.
Where Is It
We selected FarView Golf Course for a few reasons. One is, it has been a favorite on the A-List traveling league schedule and a course many in our area have never played or haven’t played often. We love introducing golfers to FarView. Its just 20 min. from Rochester and has scenic views of the Genesee Valley, a storied history (they found one of the most complete skeletons of a Mastodon while building the course which is now on display at the RMSC). Think about that while you are out on the course.
Summer Friday is a 2 person scramble. 2 male, 2 female or co-ed, your choice. Need a partner? We’ll try to match players up. Shoot us an email to [email protected]
The Food Truck
After the round, the 19th hole will be on the deck and hillside overlooking the course, lit by an array of lights in the trees creating a perfect setting for a cold beer and food truck feast. (We recommend bringing a lawn chair or blanket to sit on the hill). The Original Mac & Cheez Food Truck is bar b q-ing up a feast of their famous delicious Mac and Cheez (see it on our best dish list), bbq pork and all the fixings. The full spread of delicious dinner is just $10, or you can order a la carte.
$35 for 9 holes, $45 for 18 includes golf, cart, beer tasting, contests and prizes. Tickets must be purchased by Sept. 2 to be eligible to win the trip.
If you want lunch before your round or need to refuel during the round, the course is offering a $5 lunch special- a zweigles hot dog, beer or non alcoholic beverage and chips.
See you there!
