Because of the shorter warm weather season here in the midwest, seeing celebrity outdoor sports professionals is sometimes at a premium. This is particularly so in the world of golf. That is why, when the opportunity does arise, we need to take advantage of it.
On September 7th - 13th, 2009, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club located in Lemont, Illinois, is going to be the host to the BMW Golf Championship. It is the ever-important 3rd leg of the 4-part play-off tournament for the FedEx Cup on the professional PGA Tour.
Seventy of the best golfers on the PGA tour are going to be in attendance for our viewing pleasure. If you've never been to a major golfing event, this event is one of the best. Competition is always tight and the outcome always exciting.
Even if you're not a huge golf fan, this event can be something to behold. The layout, architecture, and landscaping of the course is spectacular and the crowd is always amiable and fun. Bring your walking shoes and come prepared to take advantage of some great September weather while walking the beautiful course.
The tickets to the practice rounds are a bargain at $10 per person. It's hard to see top-notch sporting professionals any more cheaply and this close-up. These rounds can be particularly fun, as at times you can hear the banter between the golfers and the crowd. The comraderie and the good-nature ribbing going on between the participants also makes you feel as though you're getting a much more personal insight into the personalities of these men.
For business persons this can serve as a great outing for referral partners and customers. It's a great way to say "thank you" for the business you have generously received. I've found that those that have attended with me in the past really enjoyed the day's activities and sights and our personal relationships have been greatly strengthened through such events.
