Eagle Head to the US

Ambassadors head to us

Day 1

Back in January, we hosted a trip out to Florida for our ambassadors to go and play at multiple golf courses in Orlando. It gave all our ambassadors to play, practice, create content and improve their game in perfect golfing conditions. 

Day One – We headed to  Grande Vista Golf Club for a practice day. The golf club has state of the art facilites that include grass driving range, wedge only grass driving range, 4 chipping greens, huge putting green and a stunning nine hole academy golf course.

The golf course has towering pines, magnificent oaks and beautiful cypress trees surrounding this 2,300 yards, par 32 gem. While possessing an element of challenge for the avid golfer, this stunning Ron Garl design was created with the family in mind to encourage learning and development.

Grande Vista also works closely with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary program to preserve the diverse wildlife, flourishing palmettos and exotic wetlands of the property, providing an ambience that is unlike any other.

Our ambassadors got used to the different playing conditions. The bermuda grass made it hard for the guys at first, It was a shock with how different the grainy grass was as it affected the Golf Club not only around the greens but also long shots of the fairways. It was a good way to test the ambassadors and help them get used to the different environments in Florida. You check Gary Martins Video of Grande Vista Golf Club here.

On the first night, we headed to Pop Stroke which is a mini-putt designed by Tiger Woods.  We played both red and black making a 36-hole tournament between us all. Check out the full video here. It’s all themed around Tiger Woods which when you are a golf/Tiger Woods fanatic is really cool. The facility is amazing and there will be a video from Pop Stroke over on Gary Martin’s YouTube channel.

The ambassadors spent a few hours at Pop Stroke and had some food. It was great you are allowed to take drinks and food out on the golf course.

We are now looking at running a trip like this at least once a year maybe twice a year to the public. The trip will most likely be to Florida as in winter there is no golf like it. Over the next 6 weeks we have 6 blog posts coming out about the trip so keep your eyes peeled for the blogs and social media pages for updates about our first trip to Florida with the ambassadors.
