Get ready to tee up and fill up with us at this year’s Golf & Wine Fest beginning this Friday, May 17 with featured events through Sunday, May 19. Whether you’re a golfer, wine enthusiast, or just enjoy the beauty of magnificent golf views, the 2013 World Golf Village Golf & Wine Fest will be a great chance to unwind and enjoy time with friends.
Not only will guests enjoy wine, golf, and plenty of fun, a portion of all proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society through its Annual Relay for Life event (World Golf Village Chapter).
A group of friends and I met up last Thursday at the Renaissance Resort to enjoy excellent food, wine, spirits and the very talented Sinatra-esque singer, Wade Tower. Renaissance Hotels around the world participated in the “2012 Global Day of Discovery” on June 7th to encourage people to “Get out and Discover” something wonderful on June 7th, but as Assistant General Manager of the Renaissance of World Golf Village Paul Daum put it, “We got the best entertainment!”
Contest draws 1,268 entries and plenty of water cooler chat!
We knew we’d have some entries when we created the new Name It, Play It contest but when the entries climbed to over 1,000 we were pleasantly surprised. The contest also generated a lot of buzz. We heard neighbors talking about it in the fitness center, it was discussed on the golf course and we even heard chatter about it in Publix. And then there were the emails…let’s just say some people were passionate about their entries. In the end, the entry with the most votes (591 to be exact) was Kingpin which cleverly speaks to Arnold Palmer’s nickname as The King and, of course, the golf pin.
