Editorial: Hit the links this Friday in Sugar Grove

By on June 26, 2014

Looking for an alternative to your usual Friday afternoon plans? Consider donning your best golf attire and heading over to Bliss Creek Golf Course for the Sugar Grove 2014 Community Golf Outing.

Hosted by the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry, this year’s golf outing will kickoff at 11 a.m. on June 27 with a nice buffet lunch, followed by a shotgun start at approximately 12:15 p.m. The event is open to the public, and is intended to bring together Sugar Grove residents and local civic and business leaders for a day of golf, fellowship and friendly competition, with the goal of raising funds for the Chamber Scholarship program and various chamber projects. So even if your short game needs a lot of work (or is flat-out terrible), at least you’ll be able to enjoy an afternoon of golf with friends. Better yet, you’ll be supporting the village of Sugar Grove. That’s pretty much the equivalent of shooting under par, as far as we’re concerned.

Not familiar with Bliss Creek Golf Course? You should be! It offers beautiful, tree-lined fairways, well-placed water hazards and a challenging 18 holes of golf that can most often be played in less than four hours.
