The local tour event has quickly become one of the favorite stops of the touring professionals. With the overall hospitality of the people in Lake Placid, and the stern test of golf provided by the John Van Kleek and Walter Hagen-designed track, most of the professionals from 2012 will be back with quite a few new faces joining them.
The Sunbelt Senior Tour has been the training ground for Champions Tour players for almost 20 years. This tour, for players 45 years of age and older, has allowed for some of the top professional golfers in the country to visit smaller communities where amateur golfers can play with them in the pro-am on Aug. 27 and socialize with these professionals at the event’s many functions. It is truly an opportunity of a lifetime for many avid golf fans.
The tournament has an exciting change this year in that USA Luge will become the charitable beneficiary of all proceeds.
“USA Luge is local to Lake Placid and with the storied past of Lake Placid hosting two Winter Olympic Games, we cannot be more pleased to partner with USA Luge,” according to Tom Eubank, Tournament Director.
“USA Luge is honored to be the recipient of this charitable contribution from the Adirondack Senior Open pro-am,” said the team’s Director of Sponsorships and Marketing Director Gordy Sheer, a 1998 Olympic silver medalist. “We look forward to working with Tom and the Sunbelt Tour to do our part to raise the awareness of the event, its sponsors, our sport, and of course, our athletes as the 2014 Olympic Winter Games approach.”
There will also be another exciting addition to this year’s tournament that will be open to the entire community. The junior clinic, on Aug. 26 at 5 p.m,, which has been run the last two years, will continue, but there will be a golf trick shot show added just prior to the junior clinic this year. John Whitty has been performing for audiences across America for years and has graciously volunteered to offer his show at no charge to anyone that would like to come see it.
Whiteface Club & Resort has generously offered to allow spectators tournament access free of charge.
There are openings for sponsorship, pro-am golf (women and children are always invited) and even sponsor and participation levels if you are not a golfer. Please support this event and USA Luge in any way you can.
