William Land Park GC to host “Suds on the Green”

September 18, 2007

A Message from the Founder of the National Golf League:

Ninth hole will be rockin’ in the NGL

Sacramento, CA The Arena Football concept comes alive this weekend for golf and beer enthusiasts as the Sacramento Eagles go against the five Northern California teams of the National Golf League in a golf tournament like no other. Canopy suites, along with 40 breweries set the stage on the ninth hole with music and exciting “team golf” drama. Suites accommodate 20 adults with cover surrounding the ninth hole like an arena. Enthusiasm and cheering is encouraged in the NGL replacing the stuffiness and polite golf claps. Videographers will be stationed 30 feet high and eight speakers will be pumping music and adrenalin around the “Suds on the Green” event this Saturday at William Land Park GC. With sponsors like Anheuser Busch, Coca Cola, Lexus of Sacramento, Markstein Beverage and Outback Steakhouse, the party begins at 2:00. In the NGL, this ninth hole is worth one point in the best ball competition. It elevates to two points in the alternate shot and then three points in the scramble. The tournament is hosted by the Sacramento Eagles as they compete against the Sonoma Marin Breakers, Valley Zone, East Bay Power, Silicon Valley Drivers and the San Francisco Spin. More information about the event can be viewed at www.sacramentoeagles.com. The NGL website reveals the teams, live scoring and video clips and can be viewed at www.ngl.tv Sacramento’s William Land Park Golf Course, built in 1924, is excited to host this Saturday’s event. Along with the assistance from the Sacramento Eagles, the course has made dramatic changes in preparation for the event. Golf Course Superindendent Bob Cline has been with William Land GC for eight years and is passionate about the event.    Cline commented, “The NGL has prompted these new enhancements needed to support a professional event such as this. My staff has learned new skills in tournament preparation and it is a thrill to see this course now playing at a high standard. The rough has been uncut and has grown to over 5 inches. The fairways are contoured, cut low and the course has been significantly lengthened.”  Shaking his head with a smile, Cline summed it up, “In my eight years here at William Land Park, this course has never looked like it will on Saturday!” The NGL, created in the Sacramento area, now has 18 teams around the western states and has plans of national expansion. The Sacramento event will be the fourth event of the 2007 season in Northern California.
