47th SNF Mid-Winter Golf Tournament
February 12-14, 2015
SNF Lodge 40 with St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church
The 47th Annual Mid-winter Golf Tournament in Phoenix kicks off in 5 weeks on Wednesday, February 11 with registration at the Church hall that evening. It won’t be long now before we are eating and drinking and enjoying great music with all of our friends from the across the US and Canada. So, if you’re tired of that winter chill it’s not too late to make plans to join us.
The early-bird raffle deadline has come and gone and we will be announcing the winner in the next issue and on Facebook. The next important date we need to remember for those of you that missed the early-bird is Thursday, January 15, 2015. We will not be able to accept any entries after this date. Phoenix will be a busy city next month with all of the sporting events taking place and we will have no “wiggle room” for any of the deadlines we have been given. This goes for the hotel too so please note the deadline for reservations below under the hotel information. (The golf registration / entry form can be found in this issue of the American Srbobran or you can register on the SNF website.)
GOLF COURSE INFORMATION:
You will LOVE the Whirlwind's two 18-hole championship golf courses (Devils Claw & Cattail) managed by Troon Golf. Spectacular mountain ranges and unspoiled desert landscape surroundings will give you an exclusive feel. Not a single home or backyard to be seen! The best golfers in the world have tested their skills at Whirlwind during the many PGA tournaments that they host. Golf Week Magazine rates both of these courses in the top 25 for Arizona courses.
We have reserved practice rounds for both Tuesday and Wednesday. Please email or call George Momich to reserve your spot. Tuesdays practice round will be on Devils Claw and start at 11:00 am and the cost is $100 per golfer. Wednesdays practice round will be on Cattail and also start at 11:00 am. The cost of the Wednesday round will be $115 per golfer with dinner included at the Church hall later. Please keep in mind though that we have to release all tee times not used for the practice rounds by the entry deadline of Thursday, January 15, 2015 also.
Reservations are pouring in and our block is filling up. I think we all agree that this is a great property for our event. It is only 2 blocks (easy walk) from St. Sava's Social Center and only a 20 minute drive to the Whirlwind Golf Club.
The deadline for the special rate of $122.00 per night for SNF golfers & guest is Saturday, January 10th. Please make your reservations right away. We have a hotel internet link set up for golf tournament attendees that makes it very easy to make your reservations. It is http://www.radisson.com/snfgolftournament. You can also call 1.800.333.3333 to make your reservations. Don’t forget to mention “St. Sava Golf Tournament."
HOLE SIGNS & TROPHIES:
Don’t think you will be able to make it to Phoenix for the tournament but want to surprise your friends with a greeting on the course? Why not sponsor a hole with a sign? We are also looking for individuals or groups/organizations as trophy donors and presenters. Anyone interested in either of these ways to participate in the tournament may contact George Momich (see contact information below).
Fun at Night
St. Sava’s social center will be the place to be from Wednesday – Saturday night. Dinner menus and music are being finalized and we will have that information to you soon.
For some of you looking to unwind a bit, also located at the Whirlwind Resort is the world class Aji Spa offering authentic Native American Healing. The Spa has offered our attendees a 10% off spa services from Tuesday through Friday of tournament week. You can find more information and a flyer that is needed for the discount on our Facebook page or contact Donna Vudrag for more information.
Phoenix also hosts some of the best shopping, hiking and sightseeing that there is to offer. You don’t have to be a golfer to attend the Mid-Winter. Come and enjoy our great city and all of the things that it offers.
As always, we look forward to hosting all of our friends from near and far with the great Phoenix hospitality that keeps bringing everyone back year after year and keeps this Mid-Winter Tournament growing.
