Recession Be Damned, Tee It Up In Vegas!

Three OB Sports-Managed Golf Clubs Rollout Golfer Stimulus Plan

Angel ParkIn the dark days following one of the largest financial catastrophes of the past 100 years, which included a triple-7, single-day drop in the Dow Jones, the federal government saw fit to bail out the very people and institutions responsible for the collapse while doing little to help those of us most affected by this meltdown.

Well, the folks at OB Sports think it’s high time their loyal constituency receives a little love in these trying times, which is why they created the Golfers Stimulus Plan. Aliante, Angel Park and The Legacy have joined forces to provide golfers with innovative money-saving programs that are sure to get golfers back on the links before you can say Credit Default Swap.

First of all, they decided to roll back green fees to where they were a decade ago; so now you can “Golf Like It’s 1999.” Say goodbye to “the green fee formerly known as $159,” and say hello to a more attractive $99 rate. Simply book online at AlianteGolf.com, AngelPark.com or TheLegacyGC.com

Their double and triple-play packages allow you to play two or three rounds of golf at any combination of Angel Park, Aliante and The Legacy and save. Just to sweeten the deal, they’ll throw in a complimentary rental set if you tee up the triple-play package.

These are only a few examples of the innovative practices OB Sports is using to ensure that their valued guests climb out of the current economic morass with their affinity for the game of golf intact. Visit AngelPark.com, AlianteGolf.com or TheLegacyGC.com to explore the many other ways to can get connected.

ALIANTE GOLF CLUB: TAKE YOUR GAME TO NEW HEIGHTS

Aliante Golf Club first took to skies above North Las Vegas back in 2003; and ever since, it’s been gliding along boosted by warm desert breezes on its way to special distinction among locals and visiting golfers alike.

Renowned golf course architect Gary Panks started with raw rolling desert which he skillfully transformed into the neatly contoured layout, punctuated by sweeping views of the rugged Sheep Mountain range. Challenges abound at Aliante as the golf course calls for numerous risk/reward decisions during the course of your round. Tipping out at 7,022 yards from the back tees, players must strike the ball well to score. As a fine player in his own right, Panks created a golf course that players of his caliber will thoroughly enjoy without alienating the rest of us chops. Strategically speaking, the golf course is guarded by a lava-rock-filled arroyo that snakes through the property as well as several tactfully arranged bunkers designed to gobble up wayward shots.

Like the rest of the OB Sports flock, Aliante is true to its pledge to offer the BEST RATE GUARANTEED to anyone who books online at AlianteGolf.com. Or to book by phone, call 877-399-4888.

ANGEL PARK: LAS VEGAS’ MOST COMPLETE GOLF EXPERIENCE

There’s more than one reason why Angel Park Golf Club is widely considered as “Las Vegas’ most complete golf experience.” For starters, Angel Park has 36 holes of championship golf designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer - Palm Course and Mountain Course - that have garnered many accolades over the years including “Best Public Golf Course in Las Vegas” in the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Reader’s Poll for an unprecedented 12th consecutive year and a whopping 14 out of the past 15 years.

And recently, both golf courses underwent a makeover designed to transform what was a parkland style facility into a modern desert-style track. The results are breathtaking. Not only did this undertaking deliver an eye-catching product, it added risk/ reward elements in addition to more eco-friendly benefits.

If you think that’s a complete golf experience already, it’s just beginning. There is also the 12-hole Cloud Nine Short Course, a 9-hole natural grass putting course and a fully-equipped practice facility, all of which are lighted for evening enjoyment.

Angel Park is the ideal venue for events of all sizes; in fact, it was named “One of the Top 10 Golf Courses in the Country” for tournament services by the National Association of Golf Tournament Directors. The Southwestern-style clubhouse is a great location for a variety of functions like tournament award banquets, corporate meetings, weddings receptions and more.

LEGACY GOLF CLUB – THE CLOSEST THING TO A SURE BET

Designed by acclaimed golf course architect Arthur Hills, The Legacy Golf Club can best be described as a blast to play. It tips out at 7,233 yards, allowing low handicappers to “stretch their legs” while offering multiple tee boxes to accommodate players of all abilities.

The par-3 10th hole at The Legacy is one of the most recognizable in Las Vegas. Each tee box is carved into the shape of a playing card suit - Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades. Also notorious is the exciting stretch of holes from 11-13 known as the “Devil’s Triangle.” Eleven is a straightaway, ball-striker’s par 4; 12 is a severe dogleg left with options galore, and 13 is a drivable par 4 with a huge lava rock-filled arroyo running along the left side. If you’re down a few holes coming into this triple-threat, you should press. If you’re ahead, watch out.

The Legacy Golf Club

In addition to great golf, The Legacy has become synonymous in Las Vegas for providing country club-style services and amenities to daily-fee golfers. Golf Digest selected The Legacy as one of the “Top 10 Courses You Can Play” in Las Vegas. Other accolades and awards include “Best Golf Course in Southern Nevada” in the Las Vegas Review Journal’s internet poll, “Top 500 Courses to Play in America” by Golf Digest and “Best Course in Southern Nevada” in Nevada Magazine’s Reader’s Poll.

A popular venue for numerous golf tournaments and golf outings, The Legacy has hosted the local U.S. Open Qualifier as well as several American Junior Golf Association events, where the PGA Tour’s future stars earn their wings. In fact, notable names such as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson both competed for top honors at The Legacy back in the day. Although The Legacy is well known for competitive golf, it’s also a great setting for casual events like corporate outings, charity golf tournaments and social golf events. Plus, due to its close proximity to the airport, The Legacy is a convenient stop for air travelers.

Curb-to-curb service is just another example of the many ways group-golf coordinators can customize an event to suit the needs of their golfers. Add this to an events staff with a flexible will-do attitude, and a successful golf outing will certainly result. But the professional events team doesn’t just cater to huge golf tournaments, give them a call to find out how they can make your event one to remember – large or small.

The guys at OB Sports know golf from both the player’s perspective and from the management perspective. You could say their passion also is their profession. This unwavering devotion to the game lies at the heart of the Golfer’s Stimulus Plan happily teed up to those kindred spirits who, in the face of gloomy economic news, refuse to be relegated to the sideline. Instead, they’re gathering their golf buddies and heading for the golf course in droves. To sum it up with a phrase that any self respecting golfer can relate to: Let’s just take it one shot at a time.
