Instead of “Fore!”, golfers at the Great Grill Off Auction will be saying “Four!”, as in the four different golf outings they will be able to bid on Sunday afternoon. And these aren’t golf outings at any ol’ golf courses, but rather some of the most prestigious courses in the area.
Brookside Country Club (auction items #6 and #23)
Located in Canton, OH, this private course has a rich history of hosting national, state and local championships, including US Open Qualifiers, US Senior Open Qualifiers, US Amateur Qualifiers and the Northern Ohio PGA Sectional Championship. Listed as one of Golf Week magazine’s Top 100 U.S. Golf Courses, Brookside Country Club was originally designed by legendary golf course designer Donald Ross in 1922 and then renovated in 2003 to recapture Ross’s original design genius. Bonus: The Brookside threesome at #6 also includes lunch after the round!
Glenmoor Country Club (auction item #12)
This Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course combines challenge and beauty that work in perfect harmony. Surrounded by rolling hills, sparkling lakes and majestic native trees, Glenmoor Country Club, located in Canton, provides an exhilarating outing for golfers of all skill levels. The Golden Bear had an impressive vision when he created this 130-acre course, which features generous landing areas, divine fairways and immaculate gently sloping greens. Enough to challenge any golfer, whether novice or pro.
Firestone Country Club (auction item #31)
Firestone has long been synonymous with golf history, with some of the game’s biggest names like Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods having roamed its grounds throughout the years. This private club in Akron, OH is home to the Bridgestone Invitational and is a must-play for any avid golfer. The West Course, a links-style course designed by Tom Fazio in 2001, is built around the perimeter of the South Course and annually hosts the Ohio Senior Open.
Of course, there’s lots more available to bid on at the Great Grill Off Auction, and it all starts at 2:00 on June 12. Click here for a complete list of the Live Auction and Silent Auction items!
