One of the side competitions on the golf course will be a Beat the Host contest on Hole No. 10, hosted by Inside Golf regular Tony Leodora. Players will get the opportunity to beat Tony's tee shot on the par 3 hole, competing for a long list of prizes. Also, there will be a full set of clubs, courtesy of Razor Golf, for anyone who makes a hole-in-one on the 10th hole.
Immediately following golf, while the scoring for the day is recorded, there will be a trivia contest for guests with another long list of prizes. A complimentary happy hour appetizer buffet will be provided after golf.
The best part about the day is the price. Edgmont has designed the day as a thank you to all of its members and guests who play at the private club on West Chester Pike in Delaware County throughout the year. Price for non-members is only $55. Member prices are reduced from that.
"We have been very fortunate to have so many great golfers support us over the years," said Edgmont CC general manager Pam Mariani. "This is our way of saying thanks. We hope this will be a memorable and fun day for all involved."
