GRAYHAWK GOLF CLUB INTRODUCES THE WHITE TEE AND BLACK TEE FREQUENT-PLAYER PROGRAMS

Programs go on sale Friday, September, 17


SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – Grayhawk Golf Club recently announced two annual programs – White Tee and Black Tee – that allow golfers (plus their three partners in the foursome) to play both courses at Grayhawk for reduced rates, as well as enjoy the club’s other amenities.  Both programs go on sale September 17 and the benefits of each run from the time of purchase through 2011.



“We’ve offered the Nothing But Net program for several years now, and during that time it really took off in terms of popularity,” said Joe Shershenovich, Director of Golf for Grayhawk Golf Club.  “Because of this, we made a few changes to give it broader appeal and renamed it White Tee.  Then, we designed a second program with more benefits and value at a higher price point – that’s Black Tee.  We’ve always had a great following among local golfers during the summer months when we roll out our traditional summer-time promotions, so we built on that by providing a cost-effective way for local golfers to tee it up at Grayhawk year-round.”



White Tee

To join White Tee, golfers pay an annual fee ($349 before 12/31/10 or $495 when purchased after 12/31/10) which entitles them to enjoy the benefits of the program extending from the time of purchase through 2011.  The cornerstone benefit offers a minimum of 50 percent off the regular green fee for the entire foursome.  Shershenovich explains: “golf is a social game, grouped together in foursomes.  It only makes sense for our card holders to enjoy their experience at Grayhawk with their golf buddies.”
