It's a beautiful day/week at Pinehurst
Ask a lady golfer what her perfect day is, and she?ll likely reply with something like this: sleeping a little late in a luxuriously soft goosedown featherbed, followed by a large, leisurely breakfast that she doesn?t have to clean up after, followed by a tee time in low-humidity, 72 degree weather, then a fabulous spa appointment with a ridiculously handsome massage therapist named Sven, and last but not least a romantic dinner in a charming, historied restaurant. All at a largely discounted price.
Well, ladies, I?ve had the perfect day.
Kick-off activities started on Sunday. While Michelle Wie struggled to make history at the US Open qualifiers, I took part in a free golf clinic with Pinehurst professionals Kelly McCall and Paul McRae, then enjoyed a nine-hole playing lesson on Number 8 with instructor Kyle Kirk. A playing lesson normally costs anywhere from $200 to $300. Guess how much it cost at Pinehurst on Sunday?$25.
And that?s just the beginning.
In cooperation with Play Golf America and the Executive Women’s Golf Association, Pinehurst is offering a whole week of programming. Tomorrow, $75 will buy you an all-day golf school, including lunch, rental clubs, and on-course instruction. To top it off, if you want to stick around for a few days, Women?s Golf Week participants can get a room at the steeply discounted rate of $125 a night.
Now if they?d only throw in a free massage. With Sven.
