Baseball and Golf Weekend Combined
Tarpon Woods Golf Club’s Baseball and Golf Weekend Combine to Become GTL February Product of the Month
Baseball’s spring training is right around the corner. The crack of the bat … the warm breezes of Florida … and some time on the golf course. That’s one of the magic recipes for the overall sports fan.
And GolfTalk Live will be leading the way with a very special Golf and Baseball show from the Phillies spring training home in Clearwater, Florida … and nearby Tarpon Woods GC. This special show will air on Saturday, March 16. But why wait until then to get in the spring training spirit?
Tarpon Woods, the reborn golf course owned by LPGA legend Jan Stephenson and her partners Mike and Diane Vandiver, is making a special offer.
Anyone who comes to the course during the month of February and says the magic words –GolfTalk Live – will receive a 10 percent discount on green fees … plus another 10 percent off any purchases in the pro shop.
“I may be from Australia but I have grown to love the game of baseball,” says Stephenson, who was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame this year. Spring training is such an exciting time of year. We want all of the spring training fans to know they are very welcome at Tarpon Woods.”
Tarpon Woods has undergone a major renovation of the golf course and facelift of the clubhouse since the new owners took over in 2017. The course is open to the public.
“Back in the ‘70s and ‘80s Tarpon Woods was a well-regarded private club,” explains GolfTalk Live host Tony Leodora. “George Steinbrenner was a member and many of the Yankees played there often. It was always a great layout. Now the new owners have improved conditions and are bringing it back to its former luster. The fact that a celebrity like Jan Stephenson is at the course often certainly helps to energize the club’s atmosphere.”
During the month of February the story of Tarpon Woods will be displayed prominently on GolfTalkLive.net, the official website of the show. There will also be an informative interview with the new owners that will air on Saturday, February 8, 2019 in all GolfTalk Live markets.
