Tournament organizers are about to discover that planning an event at Pine View Municipal Golf Course in 2013 is a stress-free process.
The full-service facility caters to groups ranging in size from 12 to 244 by featuring 36-holes, fully adaptable banquet areas and several menu choices designed to satisfy the needs and appetites of all golfers.
And new ideas created to keep things light on the fairways and greens are also being pitched to groups.
“We’ve brought in options like having a larger hole on one of the greens and a putting surface with two holes during their tournaments,” said Ben Patenaude, Pine View’s event co-ordinator. “The whole point of the majority of tournaments is to have a good time, so we’re adding these choices in an effort to produce positive experiences for organizations when they choose Pine View.”
Heading into the 2013 tournament season, the course’s staff has put together packages featuring new additions to the menu and fee prices that can save groups up to 25%.
“We’ve upgraded our tournament experience and our prices go lower for larger groups,” said Patenaude.
Pine View is able to host tournaments of between nine to 288 people on the track’s two 18-hole tracks.
The Main Course is a par 71, 6,679-yard parkland design. The mature style layout provides ample landing areas for tee shots as well as large putting surfaces that are guarded well by bunkers and have plenty of undulations.
The Short Course plays to a par of 64 and measures 4,025 yards in length. Players get to use every club in their bags because the tee-to-green distances vary quite a bit.
“By having two very different courses, we’re able to provide flexible options when we meet with clients,” Patenaude said. “If time is tighter, our Short Course is perfect in that the length and design - it has nine par threes, eight par fours and one par 5 - combine to complete tournaments in less time while still maintaining a fun atmosphere.
“The beauty of the Short Course is its three sets of tee-markers provide for a nice variety of lengths so beginners and casual players can shoot stress-free rounds while low-handicappers are able to work on their iron games.”
And there’s a Short Course 2013 special in play.
“We’ve created a $38 per player package for scramble events on any day of the week that includes a shotgun start and cart for groups of golfers of any size,” said Patenaude. “The cost increases slightly if organizers want to book during peak times on weekend or holiday mornings.”
