  7. The Hunt for the Reds of October

    Comments Off on The Hunt for the Reds of October
    October 2016
    Leelanau Peninsula has become well-known for its Riesling and other cool-climate white varietals and blends. What is often overlooked, however, are the high-quality red wines being grown in the region. To help get beneath the surface, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail hosts a fun event to explore and discover great red wines of Leelanau Peninsula.
    The Hunt for the Reds of October takes place weekdays during the month of October. For the entire month of October, your $10 ticket gets you a complimentary pour at each of 20+ participating wineries offering diverse red wines: big and bold Cabernet Francs and Merlots, aromatic and spicy Pinot Noirs and many more.
    In addition, the event benefits the American Red Cross of Northern Michigan with $5 for every ticket being donated the cause. Great wine for a great cause? It doesn’t get better than that!
  8. Cross Country Tournament at Manitou Passage Golf Club

    Comments Off on Cross Country Tournament at Manitou Passage Golf Club

    What, you may ask, is a Cross Country Golf Tournament?

    A Cross Country Tournament is basically the same as a regular 4 person best ball, except that we are have taken the liberty of re-designing the holes (not literally).  Instead of playing the holes as they currently are laid out, you will play them not only in a different order, but to different locations as well.  For example, you may be starting out teeing off from the #1 tee box, but your target green will be #17 instead of #1.  You might then proceed to #8 tee box and play to #7 green.  You get the picture…we will be playing a total of 9 holes.

    Keep one thing in mind, the number 1 goal of this tournament is to “Have fun!” This is a goofy format and there will be some goofy scores, but it will also give a chance to say “Thank You” to those who have supported us this season.

    Format:

    • 4 person best shot
    Start Time:
    • 10am shotgun start
    Fees:
    • $36 per person, non-members
    • $18 per person, members
    Includes:
    • 9 holes of golf
    • Cart
    • Lunch
    • Prizes!  (Let’s just say that the prizes are not your conventional gift certificates.  And, remember…this is for fun!)
    Advance registration is required by September 2, 2016. Call 231.228.6000.
