Good Times Roll at “Suds on the Green”

September 25, 2007

The rain far from spoiled the event that day. 

   

                   Sirens “FORE” Eagles

Everyone was invited at the ninth hole where they were under the protection of tents with the best seats in  the house where ever they stood.  Everyone was mingling from other tents laughing and joking during tournament play.  The team members themselves got in with the crowd as cheering and hollaring was heard for that good shot from the tee.

Fun, Fans and Good Times was the atomosphere that filled the air at “Suds on the Green” Saturday at William Land Golf Course. 

 

The Sacramento Eagles hosted its third National Golf League tournament, by far the most fun this blogger has attended in the last three years of NGL Events.  I think this one may have marked a new direction for the league.  “It’s all about the fans” was a true statement that I will go on record saying again.  This particular event I was wearing three different hats.  The first, I was there representing the media, the second a Sacramento Sirens invited guest in support and in cheer for the Sacramento Eagles and the third as a representative for a visiting team that I put on hold until after the days event end.  Letting my guard down, while still maintaining a sense of professionalism as the camera was clicking for what entertained me the most.  This I hadn’t seen at any of the NGL Events in a long time.  The feeling of one with the fans and all the team members of the Eagles, Zone, Power, Breakers, Drivers and Spin.  Laughter and good times filled the air.   Yes, it also could have been due to the Unlimited Beer Tasting, Great Food, Good Music with sponsors such as Budweiser, Coca Cola, Lexus of Sacramento, Markstein Beverage Co., ESPN 1320 AM and Outback Steakhouse.

The crowd also got together cheering on 10 contestants as Lexus of Sacramento offered a $1000 giveaway to sink a 25 foot putt at the ninth hole.  Many other giveaways were also presented by other groups for Rhythm & Ribs tickets at Raley Field, sneak preview of the movie Game Plan, golf ball and tee giveaways at the spin the wheel drawing by Wachovia as well as golf tees provided by The First Tee to name just a few.
